2019 November: People in the Environment

We’re getting close to the end of the year, a few more meetings and activities and that’s it for 2019.

To hear Kerry go over the different things we did this year, as a start for our AGM, made me realise once again how much I appreciate being part of this Club, to have a group of people that shares your interest, to be able to see the way they express through images, and to have a chance to learn so much from them, our presenters and judges is just amazing an priceless. So I’m looking forward to 2020 and all that it will bring.

The AGM was OK, but the competition went even better. The great images presented, and the judging from Peita Ward that was excellent and helpful, left me with a lot to think next time I’m out with my camera.

2019 October: Open

Tuesday 22/10

Last open competition of the year and it ended with a high note. Not only for the quality of the images presented, but also thanks to Dennis’s judging: Fun, constructive and on point, I think we all enjoyed it and learnt from his experience.

Thank you Tony for an interesting evening.

A very interesting and well-presented talk, of considerable historical value. But anyone who wanted to follow this path could never join a present day camera club, because film and the darkroom are so far removed from our expertise that he would be isolated.

I thought the presentation was very interesting, and his points about direction and inspiration from the old masters was very important. However, I did not feel his photography (being all darkroom based) would have been pertinent to our members.
A talk on black and white photography with emphasis on how a good b and w digital image is achieved in photoshop, would have been much more relevant.
However, I did feel his prints and presentation were great, but would have liked for him to speak up more. Not sure that the back of the room heard him.


2019 September: Competition Architecture / Open

Tuesday 24/09
Check out the results here:

Architecture: all over the city and structures you are photographing you will find leading lines and these lines lead you to details or the most important areas of interest in the photograph. They show the structure in a different and interesting light. Symmetry also plays an important part. These create a powerful statement.
