Balingup PGOB Social Day Out - Sunday 22 May 2016 11 May 2016 22:08 #2577

Hi all.

As per the announcement at April's Club night, we are trying to organise more opportunities as a club to get out together and use our cameras, learn new skills and socialise more. We have an opportunity to explore some beautiful grounds in Balingup next weekend where there are lots of big oak trees, colour, creeks, hills, landscapes, forrest near by etc.

Details are as follows:

  • Date: Sunday 22 May 2016
  • Meet Time: 11.30am (allow 1 hour drive from Bunbury)
  • Meet: The Mushroom Cafe & Bakery Balingup for quick lunch & social catch up
  • Photograph Time/Location: 12.30pm Ben Wilson's rural property, 253 Jayes Road Balingup

  • As a photographer himself, Ben has offered to walk us round this property together to show us all his favourite spots to shoot.
    We estimate 2-3 hours here but do not have a time limit should you get into the zone!

    Some suggested topics to aim towards trying on the day (we may work in some groups if your unsure or would like some help with these topics):
    1. Into the light
    2. Rural Landscape
    3. HDR/Bracketing (check your camera manual if unsure or digital-photography-school.com/bracketin...-do-with-the-images/
    4. Macro

    We may present some of our best images from the day on our Flickr site so others can see what we got up to!

    Please bring with you on the day: your camera gear, good sturdy walking shoes (for a possible hill and uneven ground)
    Layers/Rain/warm jacket, Water, Snacks, money for lunch etc..

    If there is time afterwards, and you would like more photo opportunities, the Golden Valley Tree Park, that is only a 5-10 minutes away.

    This is a free event and partners/families are all welcome too.
    If you are keen to come along, please put your name below on the list, (any partners/family coming), if you are happy to drive/share a ride/meet us there & suburb departing.

    Then copy and paste, next name etc to continue the list going so we can let Ben know how many of us to expect/wait for you at Bakery etc.
    I will start the ball rolling!

    Hope to see as many of your there as possible for abit of a social outing together with our cameras!

    Thanks for organising. I would ordinarily be there with bells on but I will be in Perth next weekend meeting my new nephew (not making it up this weekend due to the winter bugs hitting my household). Hope the weather is kind and I look forward to seeing some shots.

    I am sure you will have a great day out - I wandered Golden Valley yesterday and the colour has really turned in the past week so it will be gorgeous.

    I am heading to Cervantes for the weekend so won't be there.

    Hi All.

    I have spoken to Ben who says in between showers and sun, it was magic out in Balingup for Photography today and he will let us know by 9am tomorrow if we are still on. I think alot of the storms wind was abit less inland where he lives. www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR262.loop.shtml#skip

    At least if we go out tomorrow we may get some topics for September's Inclement Weather!!

    I am still keen to head out with brolly, jacket & camera to suss it out after abit of lunch. He has a house which we can shelter in should we have showers.
    So Nat, Alyson & Tania if your still keen I will be leaving 10.20am if you want to join me! Others coming, I hope it fines up a bit and look forward to seeing you 11.30am at Balingup Bakery!

    Cheers
