Our Backyard: Seaholme to Altona

Continuing our journey around the page we started last year, 18 members head out to venture from Seaholme to Altona to capture our backyard.

The morning began with some light rain kicking off at 9am with our senior members meeting up with members who wanted a bit of a follow up from the Camera Basics meeting at the start of the year. All keen to take full control of their camera settings.

From 10am more folks showed up to capture images from Seaholme to Altona. 

Several members opted to challenge themselves and explore settings including aperture to control their depth of field, shutter speed causing motion blur, and ISO to reveal various amounts of noise/grain in their result images.

Members Brian, Leo, and Matt hung around after lunch and took advantage of the clearer sky and the sun's arrival capturing some wonderful images of the local bird life, making good use of their longer lenses (such as Matt's 100-400mm) to isolate the birds in flight.

Big thanks to the more experienced members who came out early to assist those wanting to learn more about manual shooting, and to all the members who came out for a great day in our own backyard.
