The Exhibition is now open and it looks great. As we worked, we received many positive comments about the standard of the professional images.

Thanks to our helpers, Thomas Buckwalter, Bill Chambers, Jill Helps, Katherine James, Rob Oyston, Susan Slack and Colin Schofield, the work of hanging the images, was quickly completed. A special thank you to Katherine James for organising and framing both exhibitions.

Wangi Camera Club invitation

Invitation to a Visual Presentation

View this on our website at https://wangi.myphotoclub.com.au/invitation-to-a-visual-presentation-2/

Wangi Camera Club is pleased to invite the members of our club and their guests to an informative and visual evening with Adriano Carrideo on Monday night the 27th May starting at 7pm.

Entry is $5.00

Raffle tickets will be available on the night for $5 each or 3 for $10 to be drawn at this event and the prizes are:-

1st Prize: Canon 750D DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm lens, valued at circa $700

2nd Prize : Canon Optical Cleaning kit

About the Presentation

“The aim of my presentation called “Applying both Art and Science” is to provide an insight into how my personal process of image creating and thoughts come together. The talk touches upon universal design tools used in art/design theory. Tools I found personally useful that helped me understand the psychology of art and visual presentation. I feel this insight has helped me engage the audience and promote my personal interest with evocative landscape and street/wildlife photography as well as hopefully revealing something deeper, richer and magical about the world around us. The simple act of creating images is exciting for me as it often feels like a never-ending experiment, practising and testing different photographic and post processing techniques with different outcomes”.

Check out Adriano’s website , you’re sure to be impressed! https://acarrideo.myportfolio.com/about
