The first formal meeting since February 2020 went ahead as planned in August.
A different meeting, seats spaced out at 1.5m with face masks, but still a welcome chance to spend time with fellow photographers and guests.
The monthly competition with the topic "Low Angle or High Angle" was judged this month by Toby Whitelaw a local designer, craftsman and Photographer. Tony is a regular contributor to local media and has staged art and photographic exhibitions at galleries and events throughout the region. Many thanks to Toby for taking the time to prepare a well received video, critiquing our images.
The highlight of the evening was an exhibition by Rob Geraghty entitled "Wildlife Colours of Ecuador". A stunning display of the most colourful fauna and flora in the amazonian jungles, curated from Robs travels to South America, Galapagos and the Easter Islands.
The evening finished with a demonstration of Lightroom and Photoshop being applied to combine and process light painted images. This was to assist members who had participated in a Light Painting photo shoot at Bingie point earlier in the month.
