Competition – “Photo travel” and “Urban” – 1 print and 1 digital of each

Trevor Awalt – Landscape Low light
He defined 3 periods of light – daylight/twilight/night with night as the period between dusk and sunrise.
One problem for night photography is of man made light or “light pollution”
Things to remember during night photography:
Exposure triangle – Noise / depth of field / shutter speed
Exposure – What is a “Stop of light”? This is used to determine final exposure
White balance – Sunset/sunrise – artificial light
Exposure bracketing – Blending dark and light
Focus stacking – decide to focus on the foreground – the background or both
Trevor provided a lot of knowledge of how important light is in taking night images.

Mini-presentation by Charlene Morton – Miksang Photography
Miksang is a Tibetan word that translates as ‘Good Eye’. It is a form of contemplative photography and is concerned with the photographer seeing without filter or formula. (“A good shot is 80% luck, 10% knowing the shot and 10% technique. – Wally Hayes).

Competition: Photographs were rated and the club had good representation of photographs.
James passed out award cards from November 12th meeting.

Next competition for the end of January 2014 is a “Floral Competition?.
