The Narooma Camera Club holds two meetings a month on the first and third Wednesdays. With effect from February 2017 we meet at club Narooma which is our new venue.
The first Wednesday is usually a technical training night. On 1st February, 20 members learned about taking silhouette photographs. In addition to the theory they went out in Narooma and practiced the technique.
The third Wednesday in the month is competition night when members enter their photos into set subject and open categories.
On 15 February, the set subject was “Christmas” and there were some imaginative and creative interpretations. Our judge for the night was Heath Barkley who critiqued all the entries and gave useful advice on composition, colour and other aspects of producing competition entries. Thanks go to Heath for successfully carrying out what is generally a demanding task.

After the competition, Peter Seath, our technical guy (and very good photographer too), gave an interesting and stimulating presentation of our new website which he has developed along with a Facebook page. Peter has put a lot of time and effort into this so our thanks go to him.
The new website can be accessed at www.naroomacameraclub.org
Our next meeting is on Wednesday 1 March which will be a technical training night aimed at beginners and less experienced photographers. The plan is to get members to take their cameras off Automatic and learn to use the various controls in order to be more creative.
Photography exhibition - Following the success of its October 2016 exhibition, the Narooma Camera Club will be holding another exhibition over the Easter weekend in the Montague room at Club Narooma. Publicity material with details will be distributed soon.
