Welcome

Established more than 40 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.

Meetings
The Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:45pm at
Walker Close Community Centre,
180 Millers Road,
Altona North.

See the calendar for meeting dates.

Come along and join us!

As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs.

With the upcoming weekend away to Bright, here are some links for inspiration to make the best of the trip.

Inspiration and Tips

 

Photo Shoot - St. Paul's Beach

Approximately 13 members experienced the wonders of St Paul’s beach.

We arrived at 2:00 pm and tide was up, but as the afternoon progressed, the tide receded and light changed.   Being a beach nestled on the south side, we didn’t really have the wind that was lashing the Bay.  So the afternoon was spent finding things to photograph, some members even brought their own props!   We scoped around for sunset sites and decided that it would be fizzer due to the cloud cover, but as always mother nature keeps you guessing and we were rewarded with a beautiful one.  

A few members tried their hand with the ND filters and other filters on hand. Another great get together, with one member showing that she is in the running for baking queen of the club.   If you’ve ever thought about coming on an outing, please consider it, members are chatty and helpful, and who knows you may meet a new friend.
