It’s been a particularly busy time for the Narooma Camera Club. On April 5, the club held its technical training night in the Montague room at Club Narooma.
The evening was well attended and the main emphasis was on the use of software for editing photographs. The members split into two groups, one lead by Peter Seath who taught members various aspects of Adobe Lightroom and one by Colin Pass who showed members a number of Adobe Photoshop CC techniques.
The Easter weekend saw the club presenting a photographic exhibition at Club Narooma. Over 120 photographs were displayed and more than 500 members of the public came through the door.
A lot of complimentary remarks were received about the standard of photography on display with many people being surprised that a small rural camera club could produce work of such high standard. Several exhibits were sold.
The peoples’ choice winning photograph was produced by Francis Keogh.
Thanks go to the Club Narooma staff for their support during a very busy weekend.
On April 19, the club held its monthly competition evening with the set subject being “Group of three”. The entries were judged by Russell Field who is a committee member of the NSW Federation of Camera Clubs and an international judge.
