Ever met a young person with a passion? Melody Davis is a highly motivated 15 year old student in her final year at Kings Christian College on the Gold Coast, who, when she was just 14 started turning her passion for photography into a small business using help from family, mentors and Facebook.
Melody is the granddaughter of Alistair Davis of Glass House Mountains who is organising “Technology Day” at Beerwah Community Hall in Peachester Road from 9am until 4pm Saturday 6th April. Between 10am – 11:30am Melody will be available to speak to young people (and older) about how she set up her business while still at school; she will demonstrate some of her techniques on a Photo Shoot in Turner Park.
See examples of her work are on her webpage www.melodydavis.com .
Register outside the hall at 9am for the Photo Walk in the park. Inside the Hall watch demonstrations of Studio Photography in the morning and see all-day demonstrations of Advanced Slide Scanning and Creative Videography with green screen as well as the absolutely newest technology of 3D Printing and Raspberry Pi $40 toy computer.
Bring your camera, laptop or iPad to “Technology Day” and ask questions of the members of U3A Beerwah Grafx Group who will be happy to share their knowledge on editing photos in Adobe Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom or the Free Picasa quick fix program. This is an opportunity to have one on one help from an enthusiastic group who love to share their knowledge with others.
Find out how to make your holiday pictures into Movies in Pinnacle Studio or Windows Movie with ongoing demonstrations throughout the day.
Look into the lives of our Sunshine Coast World War 1 Diggers through Adopt A Digger. Find out more about researching your Family History.
In the Library learn more about your iPad or android tablet and how to use apps to create artwork.
Remember the date and come along Sat. 6th April.
