Eurobodalla Photographers March Meeting

The Eurobodalla’s Photographic Club enrolled 3 new members this month. A warm welcome was extended to the new members and to visitors who came along to see what the club had to offer.

It’s a great time for beginner photographers to join the club as introductory workshops are planned over the next few months, which will be delivered by more experienced club members. If you have been thinking of learning photography or developing your photographic skills, then feel free to come along to the next club meeting in April.

This month’s competition was judged by local high school teacher & photographer, John Fraser. The topic was ‘Open’. Images showcased the diverse interests and skills of club members and captured inspiring scenes found in nature and the urban environment. John gave some great feedback such as identifying the ‘subject’ in the photo and eliminating distracting elements in the background. He also encouraged photographers to take multiple photos of the same subject from different heights and angles and to explore different lenses, shutter speeds and apertures to capture the most interesting image.

John also gave a presentation of some of his original photos that represented his varied photography journey. Some of John’s photos highlighted the capacity of photographers to capture moments that are not observed easily, such as the facial expressions of fast-moving athletes during pivotal moments in a race.

Club member, Bruno Fabbo shared his passion for photography and a range of photos that demonstrated the challenges in photography. He showed a series of photos capturing the same Azure Kingfisher over several years and the progression of improving the quality of the image. He also shared a story of waiting patiently for four hours to capture his intended image of a bee. Patience, perseverance, clear goals and determination can certainly pay off when it comes to taking a great photo.
