Competition Meeting Wed. 11th Feb.’09

More than 50 members and guests arrived for our Competition Meeting, the set subject being ‘Energy’.  After welcoming everyone, Nettie called on Marius Swart, and Pieter van der Westhuizen, who ‘Got their Feet Wet’ – each showing 5 favourite images.  We look forward to seeing more of their work in competition and evaluation.

Paddy spoke about the Gansbaai/De Kelders outing on the weekend of 20 – 22nd March, and Irmel explained the audio visual program.  Should you wish to go on the Gansbaai outing – even if it is only for Saturday when you will need to be at the De Kelders gate at 4pm – please call Paddy on 021 876 2136 as soon as possible.

The competition subject was a challenge!  JJ mentioned that it was one of his toughest judging exercises, and he is thanked for his effort and input.  The Open section was once again well subscribed, displaying a wide range of subjects.  Steve will put up the results on this website.

After tea, JJ gave a technical talk on histograms and exposure.  Members had been invited to bring along their cameras, and a practical session followed which was quite illuminating to some (eg. Me!) Thanks, JJ!

All in all it was a good meeting at which we welcomed a number of new members, explored creativity, and gained technical knowledge.

See you next time!

Nettie
