The Kimberley Camera Club would like to welcome anyone interested in photography to the Camera Club’s first meeting of the 2011 – 2012 season. The meeting will take place downstairs, in Waldie Hall, in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church at 97 Boundary Street in Kimberley on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. The Club meets every second and fourth Wednesday of each month starting in October through to the following May.

The Club’s purpose is to develop the photography skills of its members through workshops, outings, evaluation and information exchange. Our members range, in experience, from beginners to seasoned veterans. Interests range from nature photography, to still life and portraiture, landscapes, and travel.

Would you like to know the difference between a “record shot” and a “great shot”?

Composition, lighting, depth of field and white balance are just a few of the skills to be learned. Having problems with your new digital camera? Bring your camera, along with the camera’s instruction booklet, to a meeting and our members will help you understand your camera.

The first meeting of each month involves the general business of the Club, judging interclub competitions (slide of the month), critiquing member’s images, short instructional workshops, and twice a year, judging entries to National Competitions.

The second meeting of each month is used for workshops and Club projects, ex: The Annual Slideshow.

Each month there is an interclub competition to help hone photographic skills of our members. The competition involves assigned topics, agreed to earlier. Topics for the 2011- 2012 season are:

October – macro

November – clouds

December – human faces

January – flight

February – red

March – candid shots

April – night photography

May – backlight

The Club also produces an Annual Digital Slideshow for the general public. The show will be held in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. The show consists of 3 “mini shows” lasting approximately 2 hours in total.

The topics for this year’s show are:
