After the competition, members showed the photos they took on a visit to the On the Perch bird park at Tathra. Small fast moving birds are notoriously difficult to photograph, but our members produced some superb results. Two of Krysia St Clair’s photos are shown here.
Colin Pass then gave a talk titled “Learning to see” in which he covered topics like improving visual awareness, using anticipation and seeing potential, using photographs to demonstrate the various aspects of the talk.
Earlier in the month on 2 August, the club held its training / technical night. Colin Pass gave a talk on the use of colour and composition and this was followed by a practical session on composition led by Peter Seath.
