Competition 5 - Macro and Open

Our judge for this competition was Dave Sumner. This is Dave's third time judging for our club and he enjoyed our images.

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

A form of close-up photography where the captured subject is presented at a ratio of 1:1 or greater. Typically a specialised Macro lens is used, though the result may also be achieved through the use of extension tubes, macro filters, and/or reverse mounting your lens. The aim is to show enhanced details in common subjects that we may otherwise not notice.

Apollo Bay Weekend Away 2021

It was with much anticipation and expectation that our Apollo Bay weekend away finally arrived after many weeks of Covid 19 lockdown.

There were approximately 21 club members who attended, most arriving on a blustery, cold, Friday night, with most getting meals out and keeping out of the weather.

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.

Intimate Landscapes with Dale Rogers

Last night we were treated to a presentation by Dale Rogers of Photo Rangers on the topic of Intimate Landscapes.

The way Dale spoke of this practice as not just a photographic discipline but also as part of his mindfulness routine made me think I need to spend a bit more time doing it myself.

Reverse Lens Mount Macro Photography

A member has asked about reverse mount macro photography so I found a couple of videos which explain the process.

The best case is using a lens with a manual aperture ring so you can modify the ƒ-stop while using, though there are ways to use automatic lenses too.
