Our Set subject for October is : Geometric Photography – Lines, circles, spheres, triangles. Almost every physical aspect of our surroundings can be mapped with geometry.
For photography, geometric imagery describes visual emphasis on bold shapes, lines and patterns.
Common examples of geometric photography are often encountered in architectural imagery.
Geometric subjects can feature in genres like minimalism, abstraction and fashion photography too.

Our judge this month: Robyn Georges
General Feedback :
The set subject for the October competition was Geometric Photography.
Our judge for this month was Robyn Georges, a prize-winning photographer who likes to photograph portraits. In 2014 Robyn won the FCC’s Top Shot competition, with the prize being a trip for 2 to Cuba.
At the meeting, those that attended all really enjoyed Robyn’s critiques and many commented on just how good her feedback was. We hope that when Covid is a thing of the past, sometime in the future that we could host Robyn down this way for a judging night but also to show her some of the sights in our amazing region.
Narooma Camera Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Robyn very much for her time and effort in judging the images that were submitted for this month’s Challenge.
