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.

Full Flight Birds of Prey

After having our outing to the Full Flight Birds of Prey cancelled last year due to Covid, 24 Members drove up to Miners Rest yesterday. We were all excited and ready to attempt to take motion images of the Birds of Prey.  Graeme introduced us to about six different birds, ranging from owls to a raptor and eagle. Quite a few of us laughed at our attempts to get the birds in flight and decided we need a lot more practice.
