Mary is a member of the Bay and Basin Camera Club and she drove down from Jervis Bay to be with us. A big thank you to Mary who judged both with constructive comments and humour.

After the competition, Heath Barkley gave a very interesting and informative talk on focus modes in modern digital SLRs, using Canon and Nikon cameras to illustrate his talk. More and more features are being packed into new cameras and keeping up with all the innovations takes time and concentration. Our club’s advice for photographers is “don’t get too hung up on all the technology; concentrate on getting the picture !”
During the weekend 26 – 28 May our club joined with the Narooma Camera Club to present an exhibition as part of the River of Art. 170 photos were on display.
