Dr Roy Killen:

“Wildlife Photography in Your Backyard and Beyond”
Wildlife photography is often associated with exotic places, lots of travel and expensive equipment. But none of these things will guarantee that you capture award-winning images. This presentation will emphasise the importance of exploring wildlife photography opportunities closer to home in order to develop the skills needed to make the most of the opportunities that arise if you are able to travel. Roy will illustrate his presentation with a range of award-winning nature images.

Presentation: The Rapid Development of Image Sensors by Mark Galer
May 20 @ 9:15 am – 10:30 am

 

Mark Galer:-

Mark will highlight how the rapid development of Imaging Sensors is opening up exciting new photographic opportunities for amateur and professional photographers alike. Photographers now have the capability to photograph with ISO values as high as 409,600 with just the moonlight as their only source of lighting. Not only are these cameras ‘affordable’, but they also come in a form-factor that is light enough to be carried by a drone!

Mirrorless cameras have also ‘come-of-age’ in recent times with the ‘On-Sensor’ Phase Detect Autofocus (PDAF) capability that enable these pocket-rockets to compete with traditional DSLR sports cameras.

The rapid data transfer rates of the new Stacked Backlit Illuminated CMOS sensors with on-board memory chips have enabled incredible 24 frames per second stills and 1,000 frames per second movie capability in entry level cameras. The same sensor technologies also enable 20 frames per second and ultra-fast AF tracking for professional full-frame interchangeable cameras. These developments have been a revelation for action photographers and speed freaks alike!

The ground-breaking and rapid sensor developments are opening up a whole new world of creative opportunities for many photographers at all levels – from the compact camera to the professional ILC. Mark Galer walks us through some of the creative opportunities that we can all enjoy. Exciting times.

Malcolm Fackender:-

How do you go about planning a trip for the purpose of Photography? Where do you find information and what do you do? What are the pros and cons of travelling on an organised tour, independently or on a tour designed specifically for photography? What equipment do you travel with, and how do you carry it? How do you store all those images as you travel? What do you photograph whilst you travel and how do you shoot? Finally, what do you do with all those images when you return. This presentation on Travel Photography covers all this and more.
