Club Member Barney Meyer will be presenting on Drones, and Panorama Demonstration.
Barney Meyer, photographer and “Hidden Melbourne” website author, will present an illustrated talk about Melbourne’s old and new panoramic photographers, including some of the early photographers of the likes of Walter Woodbury, the Paterson Brothers and Charles Nettleton.
Paying tribute to the city, Hidden Melbourne captures modern panoramic views from the old towers where these old guys stood, using digital cameras to capture multiple frames which are stitched to form a continuous panoramic view.
The time-line of image making and photographic technique is illustrated by panoramic views within Melbourne taken from the same location over a period of 176 years, starting in 1841.
Gaining access from historic locations like Xavier College (1872), Melbourne High School (1927) and Melbourne University (1853), it is possible to capture gigapixel aerial views using a modern-day drone, digital camera, or alternatively, the views taken from their historic towers.
Barney is founder of ‘Hidden Melbourne Virtual Tours’.
Barney is also a Power Electronics Design Engineer, historian and virtual tour creator, as well as an accomplished photographer. He is a new member of the Melbourne Camera Club and is keen to talk about his work and interests.
