OUR NORMAL VENUE AT THE BRACKEN RIDGE COMMUNITY HALL HAS BEEN COMMANDEERED BY THE STATE GOVERNMENT FOR FLOOD RECOVERY PURPOSES. AS A RESULT OUR IMMEDIATE MEETING NIGHTS OF MONDAY 7TH AND 21ST OF MARCH WILL BE TAKING PLACE AT THE SANDGATE TOWN HALL ON THE CORNER OF CLIFF AND SEYMOUR STREETS AT SANDGATE.
ALL OUR NORMAL ARRANGEMENTS OF 7.15PM OPENING ETC ARE UNCHANGED. THIS WILL BE MORE CONVENIENT FOR SOME AND LESS CONVENIENT FOR OTHERS, BUT VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE.
Part A: (7.15pm start)
A Grade Gold Club member and PSQ Judge Paul Tilley will be presenting on the topic of Black & White Photography. He will be showing how he uses NIK Software to edit his stunning black and white photos. This will be a most informative presentation!
Part B: (After Supper)
Dianne Hodge, your trusty Program’s Officer, will be presenting photographic examples of possible interpretations and possibilities for the May set subject CLIMATE CHANGE.
Climate Change is considered a long-term change in the average weather patterns that have come to define Earth’s local, regional, and global climates. These changes have a broad range of observed effects that are synonymous with the term.
Frequently used images fall into the “negative impact” category such as imagery depicting the most visible and disturbing impacts of climate change: extreme weather, historic droughts, temperature records, ice-free Arctic summers, rising seas, melting glaciers, coastal erosion, storm surges, forest fires, ruined crops, food riots, dried riverbeds, forced migration and refugees; etc.
In contrast, photographers can consider “positive impact” images to shift the global climate change conversation from despair to optimism, from apathy to action and to celebrate the many opportunities such as economic, environmental and health which can be gained from transitioning to a clean energy economy.
Creative photography such as Composites and Photo-manipulations are accepted in this category.
