Another New Member to our Club

Gordon Lee is our latest addition to the Caloundra Camera Group. He has submitted his images for grading and the Panel has placed him in B Grade. We all wish him well and look forward to seeing his entries in competition. And check out his profile on the new web page.

With currently four new B graders for this year, it looks like being a good and interesting competition.

Club Competition for February – Dog’s Eye View

We have survived the first monthly competition on our new website (so far), and the images have been sent off to our judge for scoring. This is despite yours truly managing to close the competition a day early, and have to reopen it. There has been plenty of work behind the scenes but I am certain it is all worthwhile and to the benefit of all.

Our February competition closes on Wed 25th January, and the subject is Dog’s Eye View.

An image taken from a dog’s perspective – normally low to the ground. An image that shows a view of the dog’s everyday activities, or its view of life. This may be in relation to other dogs, animals, people or places.

Nikki and Noeleene have been assessed as B grade, so it should be a hot B grade competition this year.

January Club Competition

Please note that the closing time for our January competition has been extended until 31st December.

Follow the instructions given previously to upload your images to the new website.

A reminder that the subject for January is Minimalist Images.

Less is more. The elements in the image must be kept to a minimum – but the ones that are present should be significant to the overall idea and symbolism of the photo. Empty space, lone subjects, simple lines, geometric patterns and contrasting colours are all great ways to achieve the desired results
