[Video] Recent Events

We always try to have at least one photowalk or field trip each month and when we get back we like to share a selection of photos taken on the trip – to entice other members to join us on the next trip!  Here are the slideshows from some recent trips (and a workshop).

Vogel Street Party photowalk: 8/10/16

Light Workshop, starting at Queens Gardens: 31/10/16

Overnight field trip to Quarantine Island/Kamau Taurua: 12-13/11/16 http://quarantineisland.org.nz/

Photowalk: Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year 2011, Melanie Middlemiss

Photograph the Chinese New Year celebrations with us!

We will meet at 7pm outside the Duke of Wellington pub on Mon 8th and find a good spot to photograph the parade.

There will be plenty to see and photograph with the Dragon dance, cultural performances and food stalls at the Chinese Gardens after the parade. And, if anyone wants to stick around, there will be fireworks at 10pm.


Happy New Year

The new year is well underway now and hopefully you have all been out enjoying the great weather and taking lots of photos.  We had the first photowalk of the year on Sunday, which was actually a photobike rather than a walk.  We headed to Hyde and cycled a bit of the rail trail, before heading back to the cafe at Hyde for lunch. Great way to start the DPS fieldtrip/photowalk year.

2015 is a big year for the Dunedin Photographic Society – we are celebrating 125 years.  We are led to believe that the society is the oldest continuing Photographic Society in the Southern Hemisphere – certainly in Australasia  We will be celebrating this occasion in March with an exhibition of members’ work and some historical works from the Hocken Collection.  There will also be some associated events – more details to come.

The programme for the year is available online.  The first meeting of the year is Monday 9th Feb at 7.30pm.  Our speaker for the night is Terry Maguire who will be giving us a history of the Society.  Of course, the print of the month competition will also start on the 9th.  The theme is “Open” and prints will be appraised by John Hart. Remember to bring your prints along by 7.20pm.
