That Was the Year That Was. Eurobodalla Photographic Club

The November meeting of the Eurobodalla Photographic Club wrapped up the clubs activities for 2020 with our Image of the Year competition. For this competition entries that have previously won awards throughout the year together with completely new images are judged for prizes including, highly commended, third, second and “The Image of the Year” generously sponsored by the Batemans Bay PerFex Group Inc.

The critique and judging of 29 images was undertaken remotely by Len Metcalf a renowned photographer and educator ( ). Len provided a professional insight into our images and helpful advise to the participating photographers.

In October 2021 Len will be joining us in person for a one day workshop at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens function center, followed by a early morning photo shoot the next day.

Grace Paleg presented the Image of the Year prizes on behalf of the PerFex Group, together with the 2020 perpetual trophies. Our grateful thanks to Grace and the PerFex Group ( ).

As part of our final meeting for the year Brian and Shirley Gunter presented a tutorial on Astro photography complete with a showing of their fascinating images of the heavens including the milky way and deep space galaxies. Rob Geraghty followed this with a curated exhibition and discussion of member photos that were taken on a recent trip to Montague Island.
