Richard Tatti hales from Bendigo a country town. Bendigo is one of the last major towns in that part of Victoria
which places Richard in a great location for night photography, free from the light pollution of the city of
Melbourne. We at Williamstown Camera Club are grateful Richard made the long trip to come along to our club to
share his skills through a great presentation to our members.
First comp for the year has us off to a great start. Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to those who have earned awards.
This is our first ‘official’ meeting of the year, where we will welcome in the new year with a Sausage Sizzle, a la Graeme. (Thank you Graeme for providing the BBQ.)
We will be socialising, renewing and developing new friendships, and welcoming new members. All you need to bring is something to drink. We will have the usual tea and coffee available.
Please note the slightly earlier start time. Anyone wishing to arrive even earlier (from around 6.30pm) is more than welcome … To assist with the setting-up … of course!
Our three 2018 EOY winners will be giving us a “How I Did It” presentation later in the evening - sharing with us how they made their winning images. And … another reminder ... entries are due for our first competition “Monochrome”.
The end of year results for 2018 are in, congrats to the winners.
Our aggregate scores are determined by number of entries and places earned, each affording the entrant points towards their end of year aggregate score.
We've just updated the Calendar page to include our 2019 Syllabus of events.
If you didn't make it to the club last night to view Tom Putt's presentation you really missed out. We've had Tom present at our club numerous times over the years and we've been fortunate enough to watch his progression through different genres of photography. His current passion of Aerial Abstract Landscape Photography is something he really excels at, especially for someone who is scared of heights.
Judge Rob Sloane was impressed with the images presented as part of our final round of competition for 2018.
Below are the results, congratulations to the winners and place getters.
It took a while to fully organise our Yarra Valley outing as there were so many opportunities for interesting visits for photographers in this beautiful and generous part of Victoria and only so many hours in a day.
We started in Lilydale where we gathered in a very nice cafe, “Gracious Grace”, right next to the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum. The owner seemed slightly worried when we arrived. Two by two or one by one, 17 members used nearly all the chairs on the terrace! Then she was reassured that all we needed was a good coffee and some cake.
Member Françoise Muller-Robbie made a post to Facebook the other day that had me intrigued and filled me with awe.
