We meet at the Belmont 16s Sailing Club on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm.
Many of our members participate in a Facebook group:
Our club is a member of the Northern Photographic Federation.
Another reminder for our club picnic on Sunday 27th January 2019 at the Belmont Foreshore opposite Deck 56, (56 Brooks Parade, Belmont). Bring your own everything including your sense of humour. We have suggested 11 am start but a few of us will be there early to secure the position and get a parking spot. If no parking just off load your gear and maybe park in Coles or the streets opposite. As well, the Belmont baths are now open for any children (large or small) who might like to cool down.

Thank you Roy for a very thorough and interesting presentation on basic editing techniques using Photoshop, Luminar 3 and Photolemur.
Until last night, I was very confident that I had this all under control. However, Roy demonstrated the importance of going back to basics, to look at the new features of an editing program and to research other very viable image editors.
I would recommend that everyone visit the following sites, which offer free trials.
Thanks to Roy, it was a a great start to the 2019 Presentation Programme.
Happy New Year everyone!
Roy Killen will present: “Basic image editing in your choice of software”.
Does this mean that photographers can actually survive without Photoshop and Lightroom? Amazingly you can….. come and find out about some oil the alternatives.
