Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer - and often the supreme disappointment.

Competition 6 - People Portraits & Open

As we round out our year of isolation we also come to the last round of competition for the year. In this competition the images were about people. Set before the pandemic hit and long before we were all locked away in our homes, I'm sure finding images for this competition was a challenge for all; which is no doubt why we saw a reduction in our usual numbers of entries.

We are grateful to our members who have stuck with us throughout the past six rounds of competition, particularly those since we had to remove prints from contention due to social distancing rules. I remain ever-impressed with the work from our members and love that you continue to share it with us all.

Our judge for the evening was Rob Sloane. He was not present for the reading of his comments, we are grateful for his time in reviewing our images and providing his feedback.

2019 ANZAC Dawn Service at Currumbin Beach

Joseph has asked that we share this video with you of his experience attending this event.

I was fortunate to attend the ANZAC Dawn Service held at Currumbin Beach, Qld on the 25/4/2019 with my family at 4:30am.

Upon arriving at the beach, space was at a premium. I managed to find a plot a short distance from a large screen. There was no room to plant a tripod, plus, the stability of the tripod on the sand it gave me headaches.

Competition 5 - Movement & Open

The judging for our 5th competition "Open" & "Movement" was again held via Zoom. There was a time we thought we'd be back in our club rooms by now, COVID-19… it just keep coming at us. We are grateful to our members who continue to stick with us during this time and enjoy seeing your work.

Our judge, Paul Robinson sent us written commentary ahead of time and Paul's words were delivered by Tania. Paul was a very generous judge, offering extensive critique and citing relevant references for other photographers our makers may choose to investigate.

Meeting: End of Year Presentation Night and Dinner

We gather but once a year to feast and celebrate the year that has been.

This year, because of the COVID restrictions, we're not able to plan our usual dinner at a restaurant as indoor dining will still be limited. But Gayle has come up with a plan. We're having a catered spit at Newport Lakes Reserve. The cost will be around $15 per person. Due to attendance limitations this will be a member's only event. 

We look forward to gathering once more, but note COVID Safe requirements will still be in place meaning masks will be required.
