July meeting CANCELLED

Due to current Covid restrictions the July meeting has been cancelled


Group Meeting: Speaker Lachlan Turner 'Bushland Photography'

Date:  Saturday 24 July 2021

Time:   2pm

Venue:  Gumnut Hall, Gumnut Place Cherrybrook

Local photography expert Lachlan Turner will give tips on getting the best results for photographing our local bushland and native plants and also show some inspirational examples for those who are keen to search out the hidden wonders that exist in our local bushland areas.

This presentation is not about the virtues of, or the technical aspects of, the various types of cameras, but is more about demonstrating results when using any camera to capture memorable and notable bushland images. This can be done no matter which type of camera is used.

Lachlan has produced several guides to the flora of The Hills District through his work as a volunteer at the Annangrove Environment Centre where he also runs regular photography workshops.
