Charli Savage Meeting Recording.

Hi all,

I have uploaded a recording from when Charli Savage came and spoke to members on the 22/06. This is the first time I’ve attempted to record something like this and have learned a heap.

You can find the link to the video on the same page as where all of the zoom recordings are being posted on the website.
https://toowoomba.myphotoclub.com.au/

When you login, click “Club Information” and then select the TPS Video Recordings Link (as shown below).

You MUST be logged in to see this page.
The videos are uploaded to YouTube and are set as Private – Unlisted, only people with the direct link to them can view them.

Some of the recording was cut short while we were being shown some of Charli’s photoshop layers, but from that point onwards there is still audio and some video captured by the other Camera I had setup.

If anyone has done video work before feel free to let me know and we can work together for future guest speaker sessions.

Image Challenges are BACK

Hi All,

The committee has decided to start up the monthly image challenges again.
Each month has a new set subject (different to the monthly comp) where you can upload images as well as a “field day” section for any field day event. Each member can upload 5 images for both totaling 10 images that month.
The images will then be compiled into a video and displayed on the projector at future Skills nights at DeMolay (they will also be made available afterwards also). They will not be judged, and do not go towards your overall scores.


The first challenge will be July, topic is “Fog”. You can upload images here: https://toowoomba.myphotoclub.com.au/enter-a-collection/?collection_id=2009
