15 October club Competition

This was the first meeting in our new location at Gartrell Church Hall, corner Alexandra Avenue and Prescott Terrace, Rose Park. The space is more intimate than the former “barn”, has better acoustics and on average, is more centrally positioned for our members.

Thanks to John Hodgson for judging this Open Monochrome Print competition. The three tens and six nines awarded are shown below. With the exception of Sally Barnes’ “Rhino”, all were A Grade images.

John Hodgson gave a presentaion on his spectacular wildlife photography in Botswane, Namibia and South Africa. He told us his preferences for camera settings and the techniques he prefers for this type of work. Robert Dettman presented a YouTube video titled “Master Curves from Start to Finish in Photoshop” by Unmesh Dinda of Piximperfect. You can see the video here.

Established in 1958, the Eastern Suburbs Camera Club is one of Adelaide’s most respected camera clubs catering for novices through to passionate amateurs. Members have varying levels of achievement in photography including at least eight who are on the SAPF accredited judging list.

Above all we believe that photography is a hobby best enjoyed in the genial company of those who share their common interests. We promote that with a variety of social events. Principal among those is our week-end away when we spend a long weekend in a photogenic location. We also have photo shoots in the Adelaide area, usually linked with a lunch. Our premier event is the annual exhibition held in December each year.
