Canning Arts Centre

Start 7:30pm


This is your chance to influence what happens at WCC in 2019.  That includes speakers, workshops, exhibitions, photo shoots, weekend trips, and anything else members would like to discuss. The planning meeting in 2018 produced lots of good ideas and information that influenced our meetings in 2018.


As part of the evening Tony Luha will be explaining changes to judging criteria for our exhibitions in 2019.


 Light refreshments will be provided during the meeting.

30/01/2019 Workshop




Learn about taking close-up images and try out the equipment.


Our own Kim Stewart, Philip Unsworth and Keith Lightbody will be displaying and discussing (pros and cons) equipment used for close-up photography - macro lenses, expansion tubes, bellows, lighting, flash units, reflectors. Kim Stewart will be discussing macro and focus stacking accessories and demonstrate using Zarene Stacker with particular attention to removing artefacts. Phil Unsworth will cover considerations of perspective and depth of field when working very close to a subject, whilst Keith Lightbody will be talking about focus stacking using photoshop.


Members will then have an opportunity to use the equipment at a number of stations.

Close Up - Inorganic Subject


An image which displays detail not usually observable by the human eye of an inorganic subject.


Note - Inorganic materials are generally derived from non-living sources, such as rocks or minerals.   To assist in finding potential subjects for this competition, in addition to the more obvious geological forms in nature, consider detailed observations of, for example, concrete, rust, metals (gold, silver, copper, iron, etc), glass (enamel, beads, volcanic), ceramics (porcelain, stoneware, brick).  

Organic objects, such as wood, plastic, cotton or anything living are not eligible.

Another example, table sugar is organic because it is derived from a plant, but table salt is inorganic.
