The concept of the weekend is that it is a live-in function, fully catered for, where we invite accomplished photographers to join us and run workshops. We attempt to have a balance between the lectures and then follow with practical sessions in small groups where everyone can apply the principles taught. We have also found that relatively new members of the club find this a wonderful step forward in getting to know fellow members and start sharing more about their photography and experiences.
Due to the nature of the program we restrict attendance to members only - no partners/spouses/children. The cost to you covers all meals, two nights accommodation (it can be single room / double room / triple room. Price is per person, not per room) and all tuition. The venue is 90 minutes from the northern beaches. If you need a lift, let the committee know, and we can arrange car pooling.
This year we are very fortunate to have secured Bruce Baker and Steve Mullarkey as our presenters. Both will be with us for the full weekend, thus giving you lots of opportunities to share with them on a one-to-one basis, in addition to the group sessions. Both Bruce and Steve have judged/lectured to our club in the past and we can assure you of a very interesting time, as both have very different styles and a vast experience in amateur photography.
The areas that will be covered in the weekend will include:
Making your images stand out - from Raw to Wow!
Making your images stand out - at the time of capture
The "Rules of Composition" - make 'em or break 'em ?
Indoor "natural light"
Using a flash outdoors
In addition there will be many practical sessions following these. Some of your workshop output will be shown on the weekend, and there will be a follow-up normal club meeting when both Bruce and Steve will return to assess the weekend's work.
One special activity is that on Friday night we will have three judges each giving opinions on images that we will ask you to submit prior to the weekend. In previous Kincumbers this has been an interesting session as you see three different opinions on what works and what doesn't - we can assure you they won't always agree.
You are encouraged to join us on this unique weekend, as it is a very special experience. We think it is great value for money as not only do you have accommodation, but all meals (and morning and afternoon teas !!) and two great speakers.
Please note that it is a live-in weekend and no part-time participation. From 6:00pm Friday to 4:00pm Sunday.
Bookings commence immediately. Either:
Pay $50.00 deposit at the next meeting or
Transfer $50 deposit to our account with your name and 'KINCUMBER' on the transfer.
There are a limited number of rooms, so it is definitely on a first-in basis. Please let us know whether you want to share or have your own room.
