Established 50 years ago, the Williamstown Camera Club includes residents of Williamstown, Newport, Altona, Laverton, Footscray and adjacent suburbs. There are 22 meetings per year in which members can develop their photographic skills, socialise with others interested in photography and to engage in friendly competition with the aim of becoming better photographers.

The Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:45pm at
Brooklyn Community Hall
2 Cypress Avenue

See the calendar for meeting dates.

Come along and join us!

I suspect it is for one’s self-interest that one looks at one’s surroundings and one’s self. This search is personally born and is indeed my reason and motive for making photographs.

Paint the Gardens

Our club was commissioned by the Hobsons Bay City Council to take some event photos for them covering the Friends of Williamstown Botanic Gardens' "Paint the Gardens".

"Paint the Gardens" is a celebration of the wonderful Williamstown Botanic Gardens in the form of an art competition. Previously this had only been a "traditional" 2D* art competition, but for the first time this year it included a photography category. All artists are invited to enter with the only requirement being that the entries have a connection to the gardens. The local schools are invited to participate and produced some great work that was on display.

The weather was threatening rain, but thankfully it held off, even though we went from grey skies, to sunshine, back to grey clouds. You'll note a few of the artworks have plastic over them, this was during the times when the rain was looming... but didn't come.

There were many winners, most notable for us was our member Cathy taking out first place in the open category of the photography prize. Congrats to Cathy, who was also on hand to take photos throughout the day.

Aside from the amazing works of art on display there was also other entertainment, a food stall, a raffle, a reading corner, and art play for children. Also present were resident artists who were showing their amazing abilities firsthand.

Below is a selection of photos from our time at the event. Many more were passed on to the Council for their use.

*I couldn't think of any other way to write painting, drawing, and not photo / sculpture / etc

Unless you've been living under a rock, or been elbows deep in editing in photoshop, you may have missed that Sony announced their new camera... the a9. The A9 is a 24.2-megapixel2 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor, 20 frames per second shooting, a crazy 693-point wide-area phase-detection AF, and 5-axis stablization they say will net you up to five stops in shutter speed. Oh and it also has a top shutter speed of 1/32000th of a second. All pretty crazy really. It may well be time for Canon to be a little scared.

Thanks to those who shared links with us this week. Much appreciated.
