It is perhaps a little sad that one of the more prolific photographers of our club, Ursula Prucha has died recently. I have chosen one of her images (above) to be the banner for this months Camera Clips. Below also is a banner of the laughing clowns, another of her signature images. You can see more of her images in a tribute to Ursula at the end of this months Camera Clips.
Anthony Kernich, a younger member of the club has a penchant for photographing aircraft. I asked Anthony if he would put together some tips for people finding themselves in an airport with a camera. It is worth looking at what Anthony has put together.
The recent competition was entitled square crop. The highest scoring images are displayed on the club web page. To give you a feel for the square theme, here is a little collage of the square images. Well done to all who entered.
I have an essay on David Hockney. David was a British artist who boldly used a Polaroid Instamatic to create collages that are the closest thing to cubism in photography. Read about his work.
In the last peer review I presented a HDR image of Loch Luna. I am aware that HDR is not everyone’s cup of tea. However several people at the peer review night asked me how this was done. I have written a brief article explaining my technique.
I have given an opinion about our tragic loss to Edwardstown Camera Club in the interclub competition. You know I don’t want us to be an elitist club, but I do want us to be engaged in our photography. Have a read and agree or disagree with the point of view. I am happy to publish divergent thoughts.
Lastly I have two collections of images from a couple of excursions, Adelaide at night and McLaren Vale, and a write up for a third excursion, Strathalbyn that is pending (thanks Bruce).
As always read on and enjoy this edition. It has been a pleasure compiling it.
