November Camera Club Planning Meeting at The Clarence
Tuesday 3rd November 2015
Mike – new member
Doug – prospect
Bonfire Night Shoot
We discussed a couple of options including Liscard Central Park and Farmers Arms Frankby. Parking is likely to be an issue at both of these. However it seems there will be a display and fire at The Black Pearl which will make an interesting set to photograph. Access should be easy from New Brighton – car parking on prom, around Fort and at bottom of Victoria Rd as well as on side streets leading down to the promenade.
Meet at The Shelter on the Magazine Promenade at foot of Magazine Lane by 7pm
Paul will be offering Canon and Nikon DSLR users an opportunity to try digi-scoping. Malc advises there will be stags rutting. A nice wildlife opportunity. Longer lenses would be best for this one and Malc has offered to show us Manchester Airport viewing area en route home. We will grab lunch out somewhere.
We will be car sharing to this one. Let me know if you have a car to share or if you need a lift? Exact arrangements TBC nearer the time.
An exercise in shooting composite panoramas and how to stitch them. You will need a tripod but if you don’t have one we can lend you one – please ask?
Meet by 16:00 on the promenade by the main car park area at Seacombe Ferry
We will reconvene at The Clarence to look at stitching methods.
Planning Meeting Tuesday 1st December
We will meet at The Clarence again but a little earlier on this occasion. Those attending the panorama event will retire to The Clarence where we will look at methods of stitching panoramas. I expect we will arrive there around 17:00. The stitching tutorial will take around 30 minutes to present. The monthly planning meeting will then convene at 18:00
Ruhi Balti House 19:30
I have booked a table for 20 – but can add to this if numbers increase – but I need to know exactly who is coming ASAP so we can accommodate everyone. All members are most welcome and please do feel free to bring a guest.
We can bring our own drinks to this venue!
Meeting 14:30 at the Victoria Monument.
Long lenses can be useful tools to get in unnoticed alternatively consider tricks like shooting from the hip or using dynamic backscreen to achieve candid portraits discretely.
