At the September meeting of the Eurobodalla Photographic Club, there was a presentation of the photographs that were taken at the Batemans Bay Heritage Museum. The museum had kindly opened its doors to the club in August, to photograph the historic exhibits.
Following some recent training, the club also tried their hand at ‘low-key’ photography in their September competition.
Low-key photography utilises a style of lighting that places part of the photograph in shadow, to provide drama and atmosphere.
Well-known local photographer and artist, Ted Richards was the judge for the evening and, in choosing the winners, he entertained the audience with his witty critique.
The Competition winners were:
Gold Awards: Sue Hartland – “Vivid Negative Room”
Karen Reisima – “Melancholy”
Wendy Laurson - “Stormy Night”
Silver Awards: Ken Foster – “Olé”
Colin Pass – “Vivid Magenta”
Chris Laurson – “Feel the Rhythm”
Karen Reisima – “Eclipse”
Brian Gunter – “Magic Fingers”
Gold Award: Chris Laurson – “Drama in the Dark”
Silver Award: Dave Kemp – “Busy Hands”
Image of the Night: Wendy Laurson - “Stormy Night”
The Eurobodalla Photographic Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except December) at 7pm at the Tomakin Community Hall. All interested in joining the club are welcome.
