For the first time since February, we were able to hold our monthly meeting at the Arts Centre. There was a good attendance, just reaching the maximum of twenty attendees allowed in the boardroom at the present time. Our judge Graham Martin travelled from Brisbane and gave us a critique on each photo and excellent suggestions on how to improve our photography. He also gave a short talk on photography tips.
The theme for the month was “Looking Down” and was won by Roger Bawden with his “Looking Down on Brisbane” a beautiful shot taken on high of the Albert Street Uniting Church. This photo also won “Image of the Month”. Roger was also the winner of the Mono Print category with his lovely “Amsterdam” image.
Mike Ktori won the Open Colour Print section with a magic shot of a bee titled “Bumble”.
John Cupper was the winner of the Projected Image Open Colour category with a fantastic shot of a Rainbow Beeeater with a captured Katydid in its bill titled “An Easy Catch but now to Swallow”.
Alain Chardon took out the PI Mono with his very clever “So many Books” which is one of many of his imaginative, composite arrangements. During the month Alain hosted a successful workshop on composite photography at his home. Our new trial “Creative” category which is a fun activity and not part of the competition has proved popular with several members taking part and many creative images being produced. Our next activity is a trip in August to Southbank for a City Lights shoot. Monthly meetings in the Boardroom at the Arts Centre, on Sunderland Drive, will continue at 7 pm on the fourth Monday of each month. Covid 19 restrictions will apply and limit attendees to a maximum of 20 persons. Members and guests MUST pre-register by email prior to each meeting at bribiephotographyclub@ gmail.com, MUST arrive by 7.10 pm and will be required to complete an attendance form with the correct details.
Hopefully, this is only a temporary arrangement. For enquiries please ring Gordon at 3408 2649 and Gail at 0419 638 865
