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.
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.
Our Happy Hour meetings started as a way for us to remain in contact during the COVID lockdown, thanks to many awesome members we've been treated to a few presentations from our fellow members who are willing to share their learned skills with the rest of us.
This week, David Male shared his journey in Focus Stacking his macro photographs, he has also provided us with detailed notes about his process.
Greg Cromie was awesome, his work is quite the inspiration for us to plan our next trip as Greg himself is doing. Our current state of lockdown while the world battles the COVID-19 virus makes it seem like we may never travel again. And as Greg pointed out, in reality, it may well be a year or two at least before we see life return to any sort of pre-COVID normal.
The judging for our 4th competition "Open" & "Autumn" was held via Zoom. Our judge, Rob Morgan, joined us to share his thoughts on our images. Note, only digital images are being judged due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
