The Eurobodalla Photographic Club has held its first meeting for 2017 which was attended by 30 members, including two new ones.
A quick review of 2016 showed that more members entered the club’s competitions than in any previous year in the club’s history and the quality of the entries remained high. This trend was continued in the first competition of 2017 when the number and standard of the entries indicated another successful year to come.
The judges for the night’s competition were Ken Foster (club President) and Heath Barkley (Competition Secretary); thanks go to them for doing a great job.
The results of the night’s competition were as follows:;
Projected images: Set Subject (Rocks) -Gold awards were given to Anne Brown and Rob Geraghty.

Congratulations were given to Jill Armstrong who took out the Neil Craig award for her entry in the “Eurobodalla Scene” category at the Eurobodalla District Show.
Plans for 2017 include a series of training sessions on “know your camera”; workshops on Lightroom and Photoshop and how to produce Photobooks. In addition there will be various presentations including bird photography; producing panoramas; manipulating photos to produce abstract images and something different - a talk on Photomicroscopy.
Several field trips are being organised and we are joining with the Narooma Camera Club for some of these.
Visitors and new members are always welcome so come along for a couple of no-obligation visits and see if you like us. Our club always has a friendly atmosphere where experienced photographers are happy to offer assistance to less experienced members.
