August 2018 Camera Clips

Dolphin Banner

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.
