Meetings

All meetings are held from September to June with a 2 month break for the summer.
(Click on the tab for information and schedules for each of the meeting types available.)

When: Every fourth Tuesday of the month @ 7PM. Visitors welcome.
Where: Algonquin College, Perth (see calendar for map)

The regular meeting is formatted to provide an entertaining and instructive program including guest speakers, member profiles, monthly image theme, constructive critiquing, as well as special slideshow presentations and hands-on learning experiences.

Every regular meeting, there is a review of images submitted for the specific Members Showcase theme category, as well as the general "Anything Goes" category. Members are encouraged to share their images with the club for inspiration and for constructive feedback. We have been having great success using digital submissions for presentation on the projector systems at the meeting venues. For members, this means they simply email in their images, identified with their name and the category, for presentation.

We encourage participation with the sharing of images, ideas and experiences.

The redefined Digital Directions special interest group goes beyond using the computer as a tool - Lightroom (Adobe's photography program), Photoshop (Adobe's graphics program) and ProShow Gold/Producer (the slideshow program), to explore with our cameras with topics such as painting with light, indoor-lighting, outdoor-lighting and a host of other advanced techniques. There'll be lots of opportunity for hands-on learning. This remains a SIG for those wanting to go well beyond the basics.

Below are the Topics and Speakers for the upcoming year. Further description of the topics will be provided the week before the presentations.
The format of the meeting will be as such with certain flexibility depending on the length of the presentations.

  • Presentation and questions
  • Short break (15 min.)
  • Before and After Pictures
  • Combination of: ​
    • What’s new in processing (Show and Tell)
    • Questions from audience about processing – immediate answer provided if possible or answer to follow at the next meeting
    • Video or short live demonstration of tips/techniques

The idea is to make the second part more interactive and participatory.
