After our supper break, which gave everybody chance to chat and view the photos which are displayed for our December Competition, which were Set Subject Tea or Coffee, Open and Special subject which was Fauna.  Hamish then gave us a very informative Power Point on Abstract Photography, which is our Set subject for January. We were all enlightened on what constitutes an Abstract Photo, we are therefore expecting to see some very interesting images for this set subject.

We then concluded our meeting with a photo competition on “Song Titles”, members had been invited to send in images which depicted a Song Title.  This was a very interesting informal competition, with Lesley Newland guessing the most titles. A lot of our members had sent in some very intriguing photos and this was a great fun way to conclude our last meeting for the year.

Members are reminded that entries for Eyre Peninsula Camera Clubs Association Competition close on the 31st January. 

Our next General Meeting is January 27th 6.45pm for a 7pm start. All visitors are very welcome to attend.
