Ross Bay Villa Historic House Museum (2:00 PM PDT)
Ross Bay Villa has kindly extended a special invitation to the Victoria Camera Club to come and visit this historic property for an afternoon.  The villa was home of Francis J. Roscoe, a prominant merchant  in Victoria during the late 1800's.  The Roscoe family home has been preserved and restored to the 1865-1879 appearance.  We will have the opportunity to photograph inside the home and in their beautiful garden. Your group leader with be Nick Russell and there will be volunteer staff on hand to answer questions and provide a tour. We suggest making a minimum donation of $10 to the Villa for putting aside the time to host our group.  The staff have also asked that if anyone would like to contribute images on a voluntary basis to the museum after the visit, that would be most welcome. We will meet at the villa at 2:00pm, the address is 1490 Fairfield Rd, Victoria, B.C. website: http://rossbayvilla.org/ delete
Creative Imagery with Lloyd Houghton (7:00 PM PDT)
Lloyd will demonstrate the in-camera and editing processes he uses for what a lot of people call his 'blurry'  creative images. If you’re not familiar with his work, check out www.houghtonimages.com. You will learn "in camera techniques" which include intentional camera movement, Vaseline smeared filters, and Lensbaby use. Editing is mostly in Lightroom. At the workshop Lloyd will show examples of his work, explain how he achieves the look in camera, and demonstrate the editing to enhance that look. Bring your camera and you will have time to practice the technique at the end of the workshop in preparation for the field practicum on Saturday, June 2  at 1:00 PM. The field practice will be at sites in Victoria's Old Town which have subject matter particularly suitable to learn to apply the camera techniques. Club members taking the workshop have produced many creative images subsequently shown at VCC. delete
Creative Imagery with Lloyd Houghton: Practicum (1:00 PM PDT)
This is where participants will have an opportunity to put to use the techniques learned in the Tuesday evening workshop. Lloyd will guide you to some potential locations and be available to assist with your image making. Specific meeting place will be provided by Lloyd on Tuesday PM. delete
Cattle Point and Willows Beach (10:00 AM PDT)
Photoshoot:  Cattle Point and Willows Beach are located in Oak Bay.  Park in either the Willows Beach parking lot or the Cattle Point parking area.  We will meet by the Cairn at 10:00 a.m.  This is located at the top of the stairs leading from Willows Beach to Cattle Point. During the period from 1860 to 1910, cattle were pushed overboard from paddle steamers and led on to Cattle Point, hence its name.  This entire area encompasses 76 acres of woodland trails and undeveloped natural areas.  Take the steps down to Willows Beach, one of Victoria's most popular summer destinations.  Here you will find all kinds of action and a great spot for people photography. For those who like landscapes there are wonderful views of Discovery Island, Mary Tod Island (a.k.a. Jimmy Chicken Island) and Mt. Baker.  Lunch will be at the Smugglers Pub in Cadboro Bay Village. delete

Tuesday AM Field Trip - Shoot the Shooters (10:30 AM PDT)

Botanical Beach Day (7:00 AM PDT)
When the tide at Botanical Beach is low, another world, rarely seen, opens up for the photographer. Here in the intertidal zone, you will explore tide pools teeming with sea life - snails, chitons, sea anemones, sea urchins, and starfish. As you walk along the beach keep your eyes peeled for geologically interesting shale ridges. If you are lucky you may see large aquatic mammals passing by in the ocean. While Botanical Beach provides ample opportunities to capture loads of nature photographs, this field trip will be of interest to creative photographers searching for interesting backgrounds and black and while photographers who are hoping to capture abstract images. Bring along a wide angle, macro, and long lenses as there is a nearly infinite number of possibilities for image capture on this trip. A polarizing filter will be especially helpful if you wish to try to capture images through water and into the pools. A polarizer will also cut glare on shallow ponds left on rocks by the receding tide. As always, a tripod will be invaluable particularly if you are attempting to shoot macro and low light shots. This trip will leave from Helmecken Road Park and Ride at 7:00 am on June 17th. As always, carpooling will be done when we are at the park and ride. Following the two hour drive to Botanical Beach, we will meet again in the parking lot to begin our 15-minute walk to the beach. Low tide will be around 10:32 am. Vehicles will start the return to Victoria at 3:00 pm, arriving around 5:00 pm. Please bring along layers. For lunch, you can bring along one of your own or join us at The Renfrew Pub in Port Renfrew. delete
Beacon Hill Park (10:00 AM PDT)
Photoshoot: Beacon Hill Park is a popular attraction for people of all ages.  Meet by the petting zoon at 10:00 and wander through manicured gardens and wild areas.  This is a great spot for people photography as well as landscape.  Peacocks, herons and ducks are all present as are domestic animals found at the petting zoo.  If you like macro, test your skills in the various gardens.  The subjects here are numerous.  Lunch at the Beagle Pub in Cook St. Village delete
