Photographer for Big Brothers Big Sisters

Kia ora Waimakariri,  Big Brothers Big Sisters is in desperate need of more male mentors to join our youth mentoring programme across North Canterbury. In a bid to find these awesome men, we will be running a recruitment drive and would love to have some professional photos of our matches for advertising and marketing purposes. Are there are any skilled photographers in the region who would like to come along to one of our local events to take some shots of our matches in action? If so, we'd really love to hear from you. Ngā mihi Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Canterbury

Star photography tutoring

I would like to be better at star photography (astrophotography) by getting some tutoring from someone who has been doing this for a while. While I'm fairly proficient in normal photography, star photography is a different beast, requiring more tinkering with manual focus (or finding focus points in the dark), getting the right shutter speed / aperture / ISO ratio, and more. I have a high end "compact" Fujifilm XS-1 and an Olympus E-510 SLR (help with lens choice for astrophotography would also be appreciated)

Repurpose an eiderdown

I have my grandmother's old eiderdown. It's easily 80 - 100 years old and like many elderly things, it isn't reliably continent. In fact, it leaks feathers constantly. Is there anyone who could repurpose it?

Music lessons - Plucking the Upright Double Bass

That's right - it's on my bucket list - I've always wanted to play the upright double bass - and not with a bow. I love music but never played an instrument apart from the recorder aged 7 … hmm nope that doesn't count does it?! I'm hoping it's not a long shot and that we have an MC TimeBanker with a passion for slappin' the upright double bass. Maybe we could start up a Mid Canterbury TimeBank band... watch this space! :)

Paper craft tips and techniques

I recently started having fun with paper crafts (cards, gift bags, handmade notebooks) and would love and hour or two of advice, especially about how best to use the tools and materials I've acquired.

Hāwera: Crochet instruction

I can crochet but not start very well. I'd like a few in-person sessions so I can start new projects with ease. I'd prefer to work with someone in person as you will be able to see what I am doing and guide me. We can have a cuppa in the process. Happy to come to you or you to me. I am on Milmoe St.   Thanks,    Patina
