Welcome

Our club’s aim is to foster an interest in and the enjoyment of photography.  We do this through competitions, workshops, lectures, outings and meetings with other camera clubs.

Our members are all keen amateur photographers. Their photographic interests may vary – landscape, portraiture, sporting, abstract, etc.,  but they all share a passion for capturing great images, improving their skills and techniques and sharing their knowledge and experiences with other members.  Some examples of our members’ recent photos appear on this page.

Would you like to improve your photography?

Our Club meets monthly in a friendly, informal atmosphere.  If you’d like to join – or just see how we operate – come along to one of our meetings. We meet at 7.30pm on the 3rd and 5th Tuesday of each month at the Mount Colah Community Centre, Pierre Close, Mount Colah.

HHCC – External Competitions

Hi Members,

We’ve added a new page to the Members Home page! This is where details about external competitions will be published. Look for the “External Competitions – 2019” button. There are a lot of competitions out there (beyond the great ones we have in the club) and we encourage all of you to have a go at some of these. Some are annual competitions.

We encourage you all to have a go and stretch your photographic skills. If you see an interesting competition send a note and we’ll add it to the list. You can email me at dsacurtis@gmail.com

It was a great day out yesterday for our Photo Rally outing. This year the location is Newtown. I’ll be posting some photos shortly on our outings page so keep looking on the site.

For those who couldn’t come along the brief for the rally and location boundary is attached below. The cut off for the Photo Rally competition is 30th June. The competition has been setup so you have the next few weeks to upload your images. Remember, it is a maximum of 5 images – one for each subject in the brief. Each digital image is titled so just select each one to upload the image you want for that subject.

The brief is attached here. The location border for where you can take your photos is here. If you have any questions please contact Sonia.

Best,

Dave

HHCC – New Website Functionality

Hi All,

There have been a few functional updates to the website which I wanted to tell you about and which were just announced.

Image Selection for Competitions:

The main news is the introduction of the Image Viewing Page for individuals and the capability to select an existing image for entry.  This allows you to select an image you have already uploaded from a previous competition that you would like to re-enter. The capability to select an existing image is now built into the entry form.  It is accessed from the entry form using the green button shown below.  

This button takes you to the Image Viewing page with clear indication that it is in “selection  mode”. Selecting a thumbnail will show the Commenting Page and has a red button to select that image.

Selecting the image takes you back to the entry form and the selected entry looks the same as if it just uploaded the entry.  

Remember: You can only re-enter an image which has not previously received an award. The only exception to this is the “Photo of the Year” competition.  An option will be provided to use with Image of the Year competitions so that only previously uploaded images can be entered.

Photo Comments Page:
It is now possible to respond to comments that other members have left for a photo. When you receive an email for a comment which has been left for an image there is now a link included in the email to get back to the page to allow you to respond.

Best,

Dave
