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.

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

See the calendar for meeting dates.

Come along and join us!

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

Web Whip 2017-07-14

 

PixelPeeper.io

So, in the Web Whip this week I included a link to PixelPeeper.io, a website where you can upload a JPG image and, if it hasn't had its metadata stripped, see the Lightroom adjustments that have been made. Well seems the world of photography as a love/hate relationship with the site, that is largely unfounded... because... you've actually always been able to do this in Photoshop!

To confirm that PixelPeeper does what it claims to, I uploaded one of my images to the site to see the results.

Web Whip 2017-07-04

It's an American Holiday so stuff is on sale, mostly for one day only...

Keep an eye out over the next day as we may add more to the sale list as we become aware of them.

 

We are the Most Successful Club

Quite the boast right? Well founded though, we even have a trophy and certificate to prove it.

Earlier this week a delegation from the club visited Camberwell Camera Club to attend the judging of "Camberwell Camera Club Interclub Competition". 

We walked away with the trophy for the third year in a row.

Upcoming

Photo Shoot: City Photo Walk

It's the city and it's our chance to see it like we never have. With our cameras in hand we'll take a walk lead by member Neil Anderson and we'll make interesting images on the way.

After a couple of hours walking around we'll gather for lunch and have a scroll through our photos.

Our walk route will be detailed before the day.
