There are 22 meetings per year in which members can develop their photographic skills, socialise with others interested in photography, and engage in friendly competition with the aim of becoming better photographers.

Meetings
The Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:45pm at
Brooklyn Community Hall

Competition 4 - Creative and Open

Our judge for this competition was our very own  Brett Ferguson - Brett has been a judge with the APJA for several years now and is usually busy judging for other clubs, so we're excited he could find some time to squeeze us in.

This round's set subject was Creative, defined as:

Creative or experimental photographs display a novel effect because of an unusual combination of objects and /or unusual viewpoint. Photographs in which the images have been modified during or after exposure by using an experimental technique are also eligible in Creative/Experimental sections. The photograph must always have a basic photographic image. Digital manipulation processes may be employed provided the original photograph was exposed by the entrant.

Competition 3 - Old Buildings and Open

Our judge for this competition was David Skinner - A regional judge from Albury, Zoom meetings have allowed us to have judges come to us from all over, we are grateful for those who have shared their time with us. Judges volunteer their time and judging a competition can take a lot of time, so we're very fortunate to have people who are willing to spend their time to provide us feedback on our images.
