This trip is inspired by the photography and art of Pete Rees.

Pete is a very well known painter and fine art photographer based on Waiheke. He has an active association with our club as a judge and made the opening keynote address for the 2017 Convention. He led the most popular field trip as part of the Convention and now here is your opportunity to experience this first hand.

We start with a talk by him at the Waiheke Community Theatre where Pete will present some of his work and talk about his approach to processing. Then we transfer to one of his favourite locations, Whakanewha beach for low tide and sunset. (Low tide is at 3.41 pm and sunset is around 5.00 pm).

There is a small charge of $40 for this field trip to cover the cost of hiring the theatre and bus for transfers. This does not include the cost of the ferry and participants need to make their own arrangements.

1.00 pm Depart on the 1.00pm ferry
1.40 pm Pick up at Matiatia and transfer to Waiheke Community Theatre
2.00 pm Pete’s presentation starts
3.00 pm Transfer to Whakanewha beach (eastern end)
5.30 pm Transfer back to Matiatia for 6.00 pm Ferry

You MUST register for this tour to secure your place and make a payment of $40 to APS.

Triptych; For the purpose of this Salon a triptych is a presentation made up of three (and only three) distinctly separated photographic images displayed on a common background. Additional Guidelines: The background should complement the presentation of the three images but must not become a significant “fourth image” in the message of the triptych’s three images. The only restriction on the arrangement of the triptych’s three images is that they must not meet or overlap. There is no requirement that the three images must be either the same size or the same shape. Added borders, drop shadows etc. are allowed. See also Successful images may be entered in the Nelson Camera Club Competition

Come down to Silo Park for a morning of portrait photography with models. This is a completely FREE event, but the models will expect you to send them your best photos for their portfolios.
Open to everyone of all abilities. A great event to try your hand if you don't have much experience at portrait photography.
Silo park is a really interesting place to photograph portraits, with several interesting backdrops including the old grain silos, the gantry, concrete blocks, rusty metal, views across the harbor, and much more. It's also got a playground if you need to entertain any little monsters (bring someone else to supervise whilst you shoot!).
Join us for a coffee and a chat afterwards.

This event is weather-dependent and will be confirmed or cancelled 1-2 days prior.

Juxtaposition; Simply stated, juxtaposition means placing things side-by-side in order to create contrast or comparison. In art this usually is done with the intention of bringing out a specific quality or creating an effect, or telling a story, particularly when two contrasting or opposing elements are used. Objects can be placed to compose your composition, or they can be found naturally eg Street Photography etc
