Local photographers started the year in fine form, with many beautiful images being shown at the Eurobodalla Photographic Club’s first meeting of 2019.
As usual, there was an educational component in the evening, with Dave Kemp and Heath Barkley demonstrating techniques for cleaning and keeping camera equipment clean.
Dave Kemp also demonstrated how to easily re-calibrate lenses to ensure the sharpest possible focus. The material from his presentation has been loaded to the club website for members of the group forum.
Sue Hartland, showing that culinary skills and photographic skills can go hand-in-hand, prepared a fine supper!
The subject for the competition was “open”, allowing members to choose their best photographs with any subject.
Competition winners for this month were chosen by member voting.
