The Finley and District Camera Club Inc will host a special workshop this Sunday, with thanks to a Moira Shire Arts and Culture Grant.
One of two grants awarded to the group in recent weeks, the $1180 from the shire funding program will assist keen photographers to learn more about using their camera to the best of their ability.
The photography workshop will be held at the Bottom Pub in Cobram from midday to 5pm, with the $20 registration fee covering a provided lunch.
Club member Barry Bennett said three instructors would each run two hour sessions.
‘‘Subjects being covered by guest tutors include composition photography and basic camera settings by Rhonda Doyle,’’ he said.
‘‘Maureen Arthur will cover photo book creations, learning to create beautiful photo books to display and share your digital images and creating something to be proud of to share with family and friends.
‘‘Valerie Lee will be instructing how to shoot DSLR video.
‘‘During lunch there will be a ‘What photos editors like for newspaper presentation’.
The club’s second grant was through the Federal Government Volunteers Grant.
The group received $5000 for a defibrillator, first aid courses, first aid kit, food handlers courses, marquee, chairs and a table.
‘‘This is the fourth Volunteers Grant the club has received, with others providing computer, projector equipment, carry cases and camera equipment,’’ Mr Bennett said.
The Finley and District Camera Club Inc meets at the Barooga Public School Library on the second Thursday of each month, at 7.30pm.
Throughout the year guest speakers are invited.
In April members heard from Margaret and Alfred Zommers from Knox Photographic Club and Australian Photography Judges Association.
They spoke on judging competition prints and digital images.
