The Eurobodalla Photographic Club meeting on August 22 was both interesting and varied.
Four members (Dave Kemp, Bruce McGee, Beth Westra and Colin Pass) each showed a “bad photo and what went wrong”. Apart from admitting to members that even accomplished photographers can take bad photographs, all four explained what actually went wrong at the time and what they would do to correct the problems in future.
That was followed by an absorbing talk by Phil Warburton on photomicroscopy. Phil illustrated the talk with photos he had taken under the microscope and explained details of the equipment he uses.
Working to fine tolerances in depth of field, which is measured in fractions of a millimetre, he explained that software development allows for the stacking of multiple photos into one image with the result that images can be made of three dimensional objects such as tiny insects. The resolution is sufficiently high for good prints to be made.
The set subject for the night’s competition was “Looking forward, looking back” which was judged by Colin Pass. This was a challenging subject and the results were:
Projected set subject category: Gold award – George Cook. (George won the projected Image of the Night). Silver award – Dave Kemp
The Open print category was judged by the members who, having exercised their judging skills a few times this year, yet again chose some high quality award winners as follows:
Open print category: Gold awards - Dave Kemp; Beth Westra; Ric Banister; Rob Geraghty (Rob won 2 gold awards and print Image of the Night).
Silver awards – Rob Geraghty; Dianne Gee; Brian Gunter; Ric Banister, Dave Kemp, Trevor Lund (Trevor won 3 silver awards).
