Our Set subject for July is : Portrait Shots – time to give us your best portrait shots. Can be human or animals, can be close ups, profiles. A good portrait draws attention to the subject. Normally through combination of shallow depth of field, composition, lighting and colour. A good portrait tells a story a feeling of knowing the person by the image.
We have provided you a link for printed material or a link to a video for some inspiration.
Our judge this month: Robyn Georges
General Feedback :
The Set Subject for our July Competition was “Portraits” and, as usual we also ran an Open competition across our three grades. For club members, this was also our first face-to-face meeting for several months after some of the Covid-19 restrictions were eased.
We were very fortunate to have Robyn Georges as our Judge for the month, as she is a keen portrait photographer herself, so her feedback on our images was invaluable. Robyn is a previous winner of FCC’s prestigious Top Shot competition.
Narooma Camera Club would like to sincerely thank Robyn for providing us with such informative and constructive feedback on our images, and with useful hints on how to improve our photography. We all appreciate the time and effort Robyn put in to judging our July competition for us.
