On 5 April we held a technical training night. Members split into two groups (one led by Peter Seath and one by Colin Pass), where they learned about the use of Lightroom and Photoshop CC to edit photographs.
During the Easter weekend, the club held a very successful exhibition at Club Narooma. Over 120 photos were on display and 500 people came to see the exhibition. Many positive remarks were made about the high standard of work and several exhibits were sold.
The winner of the peoples’ choice photograph was Francis Keogh.
Our thanks go to the staff of Club Narooma for their help and support during a very busy weekend.
On 19 April, we held our monthly competition meeting. The set subject was “Group of three” and our judge for the evening was Russell Field who is a member of the NSW Federation of Camera Clubs and an international judge.

A field trip to Aragunnu in the Mimosa Rocks NP on Sunday 24 April rounds off a busy month for club members.
