Narooma Camera Club news

On 15th September  the Narooma Camera Club held its monthly meeting in which we discussed the Set subject  of Food Photography.

Firstly we would like to thank our judge Peita-Lani Ward for the excellent job she did for us on such short notice, after our scheduled judge became ill.

 Peita let us know a little about herself: 

"I started photography in the mid-80s when I went to live in Europe for a few years. I developed a love of travel photography and documenting life and cultures. I also have an interest in sports and food photography.   I served as president of Manly Warringah camera club and secretary of FCC. I have been judging photo competitions for more than 15 years now. I enjoy the judging process and love getting to meet so many people in the camera club world.  

I always learn something from the wonderful work presented.”

Narooma Camera Club would like to sincerely thank Peita for her great job in judging.  We all appreciate the time and effort she put in to judging our club’s images for us.
