Gail travelled all the way to Spain to take this impressive photo. Marj Webber took out the Open Colour PI with “Courting Love Heart” a shot of Black Swans in courting mode at a waterhole near Gympie. Marilyn Western’s “Out of the Blue” a stunning photo of blue folded paper won the Colour Print section. Roger Bawden with “Peter” a great character shot in black and white won the Mono Print section.
Ben Stoffl who travelled from the Gold Coast was our judge for the night. Ben gave an excellent presentation on photographic composition before judging and critiquing our work. We had a very interesting location shoot in March which was organised by Gabby Shaw. The venue was the Caboolture Historical Village and Gaby made a list of things for us to find and photograph.
It was a beautiful day with lots of members turning up for the shoot. The Historical Village has thousands of items of interest and set in lovely gardens. Photographers had a very enjoyable morning snapping items of interest. Most of us were able to complete the list set for us by Gabby.
The volunteers at the village served us a delicious Devonshire Tea and some of the crew stayed for lunch in the café and more photography. During the month a group of photographers from the Tin Can Bay Club paid Bribie Island a visit staying for a few days. Some of our crew met up with them at Bibimulya Wetlands and we spent a very pleasant morning in their company.
It was quite a hot day so after a few hours, we were happy to go to the Big Bun Bakery for morning tea. 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 Sunderland 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 or just turn up on the night.
