The big news for this month is that new member Prim Rogers- Walker who entered her photo in the Novice section was awarded Photo of the Month by our visiting judge John Marshall. Her beautiful shot “Precious One” was a standout winner. Congratulations to Prim! The theme for the month was “Portrait” and was won by another new member Angela Smith. Angela submitted a striking shot titled “Eid” which was awarded first place. John Cupper was the winner of the two Mono categories with his “Have my Eye on You” and “On the Hunt”.

Beth Mottershead submitted a beautiful photo of a rose “For Mother’s Day” which was the winner of the Colour Print section. Marj Webber won the colour PI with “Black Jezebel” a beautiful butterfly common on Bribie Island during the cooler months. John Marshall was our visiting judge who critiqued each photo and awarded the places and a mark out of 10. A photograph was submitted by Roger Bowden for our Smart Workflows exercise where members practice their processing skills on a photograph and submit their finished images to Dropbox.
These are displayed at the meeting and it is amazing to see the variation in the individual finished photos. Some lovely shots of our location shoot outing to Toorbul last month were also displayed. Centenary Lakes at Caboolture on a crisp, sunny, winter’s day was the venue for our location shoot this month. Our keen photographers busied themselves with snapping photos of water features, waterfalls, flora and the plentiful birdlife. During these outings, more experienced photographers are on hand give assistance to any member needing extra tuition.
After a fruitful photography session, the group enjoyed morning tea together in the park. There are several interclub competitions coming up to which our club will be submitting photos. The Bribie Island Photography Club meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 pm in the boardroom at the back of the Arts Centre on Sunder land Drive. New members are always welcome. The first two meetings are free. If you wish to come along ring Gordon at 3408 2649 or Gail at 3408 9850.
