Landscape Photography

With the NZ Landscape Trophy coming up in August, this Peter Eastwood article may be helpful.
What is a landscape photograph?
If we look at the history of photography, landscapes are anything from straight colour captures
through to heavily manipulated black and white prints. They can be of the natural world or the
urban environment; they can include the hand of man or ignore it. And aesthetically they can range
from the high colour panoramas by Ken Duncan and Peter Lik to the contemporary art produced by

Packard Museum Visit

About 18 Club members enjoyed a tour of the Packard Museum recently, where cars of various ages predominated, but shared space with everything from motor bikes and motor scooters to old sewing machines and wind-up record players.
Earlier, some of the group were able to get up-close and personal with twenty-plus Corvettes from the visiting Auckland Club. These spent the morning at the Town Basin before making their way to line up at the Packard Museum in Maungatapere.

First Outing of the Year

The Caveman Lunch at Waipu Caves was a lot of fun, with a good turnout including the two resident horses which were a little over-friendly.
Glowworms, slalagmites, stalactites and reflections were photographed, different camera settings tried out, and Rose's coloured lights were enjoyed by all.
In the end, lunch was enjoyed outside in the sun rather than inside the cave, and the final photo op of the day was of the muddy rear ends of a couple of overly adventurous camera-cavers. Thank you Noel for organising this outing.

2013 Final Fling

What a lovely evening it was - calm and warm. After a congenial drink at Reva's, many photos were taken from one end of the basin to the other. Some then went on to view Christmas lights. This photo is straight from the camera - hand-held at 5000 ISO.

Photo Opportunity

The sailing ship Picton Castle at Whangarei Wharf. Open to the Public from 4.30 to 7 pm today, Sunday 17th.

Mangawhai Walkway Trip

The Mangawhai Walkway trip provided some fabulous photo opportunities and nice weather for seven members of the Club.


Waipu Caves Trip

The small group who went into Waipu Caves were really glad they made the effort.
The cave provided ideal opportunities to try different camera techniques, and all ended up with some really
interesting shots.

The Pouto Trip

The recent trip to Pouto proved to be a
very windy affair, but we – and our gear –
survived the sand-blasting with little damage.        ..more..
