Our local amateur photographers presented a variety of wonderful photographs at their July meeting. The theme was “open” so members were free to present any of their photographs!
Heath Barkley presented an educational session on how to set up a studio for portrait photography.
The meeting is a social function as well as a learning opportunity and Sue Hartland provided excellent homemade cakes for all!
The judge for the competition was Helen McFadden from the Canberra photographic club. Helen provided detailed critiques for all of the photographs and this was a much-appreciated learning opportunity for all.
