Image Discussion – Theme Long Exposure

MAGE DISCUSSION with the THEME: Long Exposure

This meeting the theme is: Long Exposure photography

    • Get out your tripods and shoot moving objects like waterfalls, or moving vehicles, or anything else that moves.  Neutral density filters will come in handy to get long exposures on sunny days.

You can also submit any photo in the Open Theme (your choice of subject/theme).  Discussion offers different interpretations, suggestions for improvement or enhancement as well as what judges look for in competitions.

Halfway through the meeting, we break for coffee and treats.

Please bring your photos on a flash drive/memory stick so that Radek can upload them onto the club computer before the meeting starts.

Hope to see you there!

Brunswick Point Trails

This is a nice walk along the dykes for bird watching and ‘shooting’

This is an easy walk but do wear hiking type shoes as there may be marshy areas at this time of year.

Do a Map/GPS search from your starting point to Brunswick Point Trail Delta.

It is out near Reifel Bird Sanctuary. Morning is a good time to see birds so this is starting early.

Please remember to bring only bird seed, not bread.
