WHAT IS A PHOTO SAFARI?
Photo Safari's are a fun couple of hours where set categories are placed and the photographer has limited time to find and photograph the best composition of that subject in the immediate area. This gets the photographer walking in search of the topic, stretching the imagination and thinking best camera settings to use with the available conditions that the day holds. It's a fun way to learn and gets the heart racing!
There are a few rules...
- 10 subjects will be announced on the day
- 3 or 4 subjects will be issued at a time
- You have a set amount of time to capture these 3 or 4 images
- The subjects have to be captured in camera as announced
- No editing allowed
- Images will be downloaded onto the club's laptop after the time is up and judged
- The club with the highest points at the end of the day takes home the trophy!
PHOTO SAFARI 2018
TIN CAN BAY
Saturday, 21st July
Five members from HBPC attended the annual safari on Saturday 21st July. Jessie, Warren, Leanne, Janelle and Krystal were greeted by members of the Tin Can Bay Camera Club with a beautiful morning tea - enough to feed a small army! All up I think there were 22 photographers and we headed out with our first three subjects.
1. Leaves - situated in a nature reserve, was pretty easy
2. Texture - again lots of trees/bark for texture
3. Insects - you would think was easy - NOPE not an insect in sight
The next three subjects were anywhere in Tin Can Bay.
4. Peeling Paint
5. Environmental Trash - this is when we hit Google for the definition
Then to finish at Crab Creek for the last three.
7. Sand Patterns
The ladies cooked a yummy lunch and we managed to finish the left over morning tea as well before heading home back to Hervey Bay. the weather was a bit chilly in the morning but turned into a beautiful day.
Thanks to everyone who made the effort and participated.
To end the fun day, Hervey Bay went away with 8 points and Tin Can Bay won with 46 points.
