Look What's New

The Executive Committee are introducing an extension to our bi-monthly GOYA (Get Out of your Armchair) programme. Not all of us can make GOYA, despite the pleasing enticement of spending a morning with friends from club, and the added bonus of good coffee!

GOYA Plus will take place on the alternate month. A challenge will be issued, via an email notice sent out by our secretary, and featured on the club Facebook page. There is a twist; a riddle, which first you must solve. The challenge is then to go out (or stay in) and capture the image!

Annette Johnston will serve as the moderator, and your entries can be emailed to her at aj@heddfan.co.nz with the same digital sizing as for regular club evaluation (1920px by 1200px at 72dpi). The images will be shown at the next available club night, for members to enjoy and perhaps marvel over.

The first GOYA Plus challenge will be delivered Monday 10 April, with images submitted to Annette by 5.00pm Sunday 15 April.


Field Trips... Get out for a walk and talk.

Designed for all members but an opportunity for newer members to meet fellow club members and take photos in the field. Bring your camera and if you wish your camera manual. You can buddy up with a more experienced club member and learn some new skills/techniques.
