New Member Info (updated)

Welcome…

We are a friendly group of people with a range of photographic skills and experience who share a passion for photography. The aim of our club is to inspire one another to constantly improve our photographic skills and to occasionally step outside our comfort zones to try new and exciting things. Whether you are relatively new to photography or a more experienced amateur, there are always new skills to learn and fellow members to help you on your creative journey.

EXHIBITION NIGHTS

Where – Katoomba RSL – 86, Lurline Street, Katoomba.
When – The first Monday of each month, with the exception of January.

Arrive at 7pm to chat with other members and set up your prints, ready for a prompt 7.30pm start. You may like to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine, purchased directly from the RSL bar.
Generally, the theme for exhibition nights is ‘open’ allowing members to submit their favourite photographic subjects. On a few exhibition nights each year we have a ‘theme’ night exploring a particular area of photography. Dates and topics can be found on the calendar and regular reminders are always posted via email.

Images

Select your best images to submit. We have 3 categories: Digital Projected Images [DPIs] in either colour or monochrome; Colour Prints [CP] and Monochrome Prints [MP]. The total number of DPIs or prints you may submit for an exhibition night may vary from time to time. Currently we are limiting submissions to a total of three images. This ensures that there is time for full feedback on each image. You could submit up to three images in a single category or a total of up to three images across two or more categories.

Please go to theSUBMITTING IMAGES page for instructions on resizing and renaming your image files for emailing.

Critiquing/judging of images

This may be done by a panel of member judges or by a guest judge who may be a professional photographer. Constructive comments and a score out of 15 are given for each image.
For more information on member judging please head to Scoring and Critiquing

Members Choice

Members have an opportunity to vote for their favourite DPI, Colour Print and Mono Print. Pick up a voting slip as you enter.
Voting slips will also be used to award a lucky door prize at the end of the evening
