Narooma Camera Club news

On 1st March twenty five people attended Narooma Camera Club’s technical training evening at Club Narooma.

The evening was directed mainly at beginners and less experienced photographers with a view to telling them how aperture, shutter speed and ISO work in conjunction to give better control than just setting cameras on automatic. Members then practised the principles by taking photographs of various items set on tables.

Despite all the technical matters, It was an enjoyable evening and we were pleased to welcome three new members.

Further training evenings are scheduled throughout the year. On 5 April tuition will be provided on how to use Adobe Photoshop and Light Room.

Wednesday 15 March saw the club’s monthly competition take place. The set subject was “Long Exposure” and members produced some dramatic and high quality images. The judge for the evening was Ken Foster who is a NSW Federation of Camera Clubs registered adjudicator. Ken commented on the excellent quality of the entries and said that picking the winners was a difficult task.

The results of the March competition were as follows:

Division A - Open category:

Gold awards – Kevin Budds; Michelle Merry; Colin Pass.
