It's time for the first BBQ meet of the season.
We shall be returning to our usual spot at Albert Park lake.
The area has bbq facilities, benches, toilets.. swans.
We have a bit of a fun twist in store for the meet this time.
The Melbourne Silver Mine will be putting on a bit of a show of DIY film development... So there will be film cameras for folks to play with, shoot with, and then we will be developing the film, and creating some prints from them... all at the picnic bench.
Giving you a chance to see how easy and fun analogue photography can be,.. as long as you don't mix your developer with your sauv blanc.
MSMInc will have a bit of a sausage sizzle going on as well, so, all you need to do is bring yourself down, a drink, some gold coins for your snag needs and prepare to be amazed by the wonders of chemistry.
There's no charge for taking part in the DIY developing bonanza, any money raised stays within the non-profit incorporated association Melbourne Silver Mine Inc to fund future photographic events.
