Competition 3 - Blue & Open

HC - A Grade: Set Digital - The Log Cabin © Leo Loque

The judging for our 3rd competition "Open" & "Blue" was held via Zoom. Our judge, Adrian Smith, provided comments that Tania, our Competition Steward, read while we displayed the images. Note, only digital images are being judged due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

If you missed the Zoom meeting, you also missed our discussion as a group where we talked about some of the images that stood out or those we thought maybe had been misinterpreted by the judge. We've kind of agreed that we might like to do this going forward.

For this competition we have the judge's comments in note form. If you would like to see them for your image please contact and we'll pass them through.

Meeting: Light Painting

It was a much-loved event in 2019 so we're giving it another go. Join us at Altona beach at the end of Millers Road and to the right.

This is a workshop exploring the use of light for painting on our cameras. We'll be looking at using manual mode during this workshop.

Bring a tripod, a wide lens: between 20 and 120mm, a headlamp or torch, a remote trigger, or know your timer settings. It will be quite dark and it will be cold, so ensure you rug up for the evening. 

Also dark clothing is best as you might help out with the lighting and the darker your clothing the less you are likely to appear in the shot. There will be a few stations on the night so we can spread out.
