2019 Christmas Party / AGM / Image of the Year

Narooma Camera Club’s Christmas Party was held in the Montague Room at Club Narooma on Tuesday Evening 17th December 2019. The party was followed by the club’s Annual General Meeting and presentation of awards for the Image of the Year.

 

AGM

 

Last year’s (2018) AGM was a disappointing affair, with the club unable to form a committee for the year. NCC was saved from disbanding by a dedicated core of members who volunteered to run a jury-rigged committee to keep the club afloat. All members of the club owe a debt of gratitude to Brian Gunter, Krysia St Clair, and Rosy Williams, who prevailed with help throughout the year from other club members. Under the circumstances, it turned out to be a fairly successful year.

 

This year’s AGM was opened by Mike St Clair acting as de facto President. Reports were presented from the “Secretary”, “Treasurer”, and “Events Officer” and accepted by the members present.

 

During 2019, a group of members concerned for the ongoing future of the club held informal meetings with an eye to forming a management group to present to members at this year’s AGM. As a result, the following nominations were put to the members, and all positions were elected unopposed:

 

President                               Wes Smith

Secretary                                Ally Aitken

Treasurer                                Wendy Fisk

Events Officer                        Katherine Wagner

Facebook Officer                   Krysia St Clair

Club Membership Officer     Sue Lawson

Web Site Officer                    Russell Howick

 

Congratulations, and thanks to all.

 

We're all looking forward to a rejuvenated club as we head into our 20th year.

As a club we  decided due to the stress for our members from the fires in our region that the January get together would be put off and changed to our February outing.  We decided it would be good to chose a business that was affected by the fires and it would be good for our group to support the business by having our outing there.

February 17, 2020

Our Set subject for February is :   Running water - You can photograph Rivers, Streams, Waterfalls, tap water.   We have provided you a link for printed material just below  or  try this video link -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-veVUJ7tmDY

June 15, 2020

Our Set subject for June is :   Action Shots – any action that you can capture, things like horse racing, soccer, football, netball or sports in general, Animals in fast motion.   When taking a good action shot you will need to understand the exposure triangle.  ISO, Aperture and shutter speed. For most shots you will need to have a shutter speed like 1/1000 of a second.  A fast speed can help you capture a split second shot, but as it changes the lighting of your shot you will need to adapt the ISO and aperture.     We have provided you a link for printed material below  or here is a link to a video for some inspiration - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kai_uHItyI0

Our Set subject for September is :   Food Photography  – Food photography is arguably one of the most challenging types of photography out there.

Everything in the photo is a decision. Every piece is perfectly placed by the photographer.

Our Set subject for November is :   Smoke or Shadows photography - Photography is known as the art of capturing light.  In photography, an image without a shadow is often two-dimensional in shape. But with the addition of a third component, the shadow, this shape is transformed into a form.  Now for the second subject -  Smoke art photography is one of those genres that's an acquired taste - In its purest and simplest interpretation, it's photography where the subject is smoke.  You have the choice of either of these two subjects as your set subject this month
