The ladies take the awards at Narooma Camera Club

On 16 August the Narooma Camera Club held its monthly competition. All the awards (except one) were won by our lady members. Russell Howick won a silver to keep the men’s pride alive.

Our judge for the evening was Geri Taylor, the set subject for the night was Rock Pools and the competition results were as follows:

Division A Open category:

Gold award: Shirley Gunter

Silver awards: Russell Howick; Michelle Merry

Division A Set Subject:

Gold award: Krysia St.Clair.

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.

As always, new members and visitors are welcome. Have a look at our website and our Facebook page
