I have been fortunate to score articles from Di Gage, Judy Sara, Mark Pedlar, Howard Seaman and Chris Schultz this month. I have all of the information presented at the recent Spot colour workshop. Howard and I swap RAW files to demonstrate how we would manipulate each others images. Chris talks about Accidental Renaissance. The Banner above is by Suzie Smith from the “lit from Behind” competition. All you could want and more from this months Camera Clips.
I trust you will enjoy this months edition.
The logo of our club depicts a camera lens and a couple of branches of blackwood, an Australian wattle tree. This has been a successful and recognizable symbol for over 50 years.
I have been experimenting with variations on this theme. The glass camera lens may also resemble the sawn end of a blackwood log. I feel that there is nothing wrong with contemporizing a successful trademark. We see this happening all the time in the buisness sector. However feel free to give me your feedback. It may not be to everyone’s taste. Let me know.
I am dreadfully late putting out the May edition of Camera clips. Above, the banner is an image of Victoria Falls by Kerry Malec. This appeared in our Elements competition and the element in this case was water.
In this edition – Concept Photography – The elements – Negative Space – Smoke Photography – Stavros Pippos.
I have included articles that were written before the elements competition to stimulate ideas, and again I apologize that they are being published after the event. Regardless have a read and let me know what you think. I have received very positive reviews about some of the camera clips articles from last edition. Thank you to those who have taken the time to give me feedback.
This edition of Camera Clips is late. I apologize to the authors who had their articles submitted quite early in the piece. There has been a lot happening in the club. We have had the architecture competition, an invitation to hear Ken Duncan speak and we have hosted Stavros Pippos. There has been a peer review night and an excursion. Make sure you catch up on the events in this months edition of camera clips. We also have articles from Helen Whitford, Ray Goulter and myself.
Welcome to 2019. I have pulled together the January edition of Camera clips. In case you missed the recent events, this is your chance to see what happened in the 31 day challenge and the Architecture excursion. There are two additional articles, “perspective in photography” and “Steve McCurry“. Useful reading for the upcoming Architecture competition. Keep cool as the warm weather hits. Hope to see you in the coming weeks.
The glacier above was taken by Duart McLean on his trip to Iceland. It was not his highest scoring image and did not win an award. However in my books it is a top image. Read about his trip in this edition of Camera Clips. Camera Clips recognizes that there are many top images and we want to celebrate everybody who has entered the annual awards. You can see everybody’s “Top Image”, (as well as the awarded images) in the article of the same name.
I have managed to get the powerpoint presentation by Stuart Templeton on Star trail photography. There are also some images from Spain and Portugal. Ray explains another old film camera, the Olympus Trip 35… and there are several more articles in the latest edition of Camera Clips. You can find the December edition by clicking here.
Don’t forget to get involved in the 31 day challenge this December. You don’t have to put in a photograph every day, just try and do as many as possible. For those who are not entering, make sure you are watching the Flikr page and commenting on the images as they come in.
Have a good Christmas and a great New Year.

Frances and I am going to be away for the next 6 weeks on holidays. We will be missing the AGM and the last competition for the year. With that in mind I have pushed forward the next edition of Camera Clips. A couple of the articles have been sitting on file for many years. I was given a copy of a series of articles describing basic techniques for beginner photographers by Brenda Amos. There is an explanation of the Golden Ratio and how it applies to photography. Judy Sara has given me a write up of her travels to East Indonesia. We have a series of photographs and quotes from Tracey Moffatt. Lastly there are tips for the upcoming excursion to Laratinga.
Here is the link
I have you enjoy this edition.
