Photograph Your Toddler

NYIP – Photograph Your Toddler

Want a picture-taking challenge? Well, if you are a parent, grandparent, or relative of a toddler and you are the “designated photographer”, you already know that capturing kids of this age with a camera is downright difficult. Why? Simply because toddlers often exhibit non-stop motion, have the attention span of about a nanosecond, and can emotionally range from hysterical laughter to hysterical crying, sometimes for no apparent reason.

Airshow Photography

Three Harvards of the Flying Lions leave a perfect smoke trial as they close the loop they have just performed.Chris Joubert sent along an article he’d found on airshow photography and I thought I’d add a link to the article I used as a reference when I first started attending airshows with my camera.

  1. Airshow Photography – How to Maximize Outstanding Photographic Opportunities of Fast Moving Objects
  2. Airshow Photography Tips

Those wishing to try their hand at some airshow photography should mark the 14th November 2009 on their calendars. This is the date of the next show at the SAAF Test Flight Development Centre near Bredasdorp.

The Camerazzi Community

Nettie was sent the following.

Hi Nettie

I noted your photography club’s contact details on the PSSA website and thought I’d drop you line on a very interesting new online community for ‘the shutterbugs of this world.’

My name is Pikkie Wolmarans and I am the Editor of a delightful new website “The Camerazzi Community” http://www.camerazzi.co.za where we endeavor to provide everyone with a camera, from the very beginner to advanced enthusiasts, with an informal, social yet educational virtual meeting place where we play the game, learn and advance our photographic skills.

What started out as a small interest group, is rapidly developing into an online platform for all digital photography enthusiasts, providing them with an opportunity to ‘go online clubbing 24/7’

The site is non-commercial and we have no other interest than providing a platform for amateur photographers to post their photos, comment, crit and discuss the posts and maybe get some valuable tips on various aspects of the digital game we play.

Participation is free and requires no registration – which means that anyone can visit, post photos and comments whenever they want to.

We do not rate photographers or their skills but simply comment on and/or critique all photos posted to the site at face value and as such provide a valuable soundboard for enthusiasts to get some second and third opinions on their photos and also an opportunity to be advised on possible improvement.

It would be most appreciated if you could share the above information with your members, possibly in an e-mail, your newsletter or at a club meeting and invite them to pay us an online visit and see for themselves what’s happening at the place “where shutterbugs unite to share their wisdom, skills and resources.”

En aan ons Afrikaanse mense daarbuite – ons gooi die Taal! Afrikaanse korrespondensie is welkom, maar ter wille van globale aard van die webwerf, moet ons dit noodwendig in Brits bedryf.

Dankie/Thank You

Pikkie
