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 – Nature Photography Presentation

Firstly, a very big thank you to Marion for hosting the nature competition evening and providing all of the input and critiquing on the large number of entries – 88 in total!

And also – thank you to all our members for providing all of the entries and having a go. There was a lovely selection of images. Photography is, as ever, a constant learning exercise. Hopefully the inputs you all received will be helpful in the event you would like to pursue Nature Photography further. It also important to remember that the comments provided are a simply a reflection of what judges will look for in images submitted within nature and wildlife competitions.

The important thing to do as Marion pointed out is simply to keep “having a go”. You can access Marion’s excellent presentation here.

HHCC – NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY PRESENTATION and COMPETITION 30th APRIL

Hi Members,

This will be a night for you to see a presentation on nature photography TTT (tips, trials and tribulations) given by Marion Anstis, and also to test out your nature photography in a friendly competition which doesn’t count to the year’s point score tally, so no stress involved! The club is hoping to encourage you to submit up to 6 digital only nature images keeping the nature regulations in mind (see below), and have some feedback on them from Marion, with a view to encouraging our club members to enter into future interclub nature competitions, for which we can only enter two images per person. There is a link below to the competition regulations for wildlife and nature.

So please head out into your garden or local park, pond area, beach, zoo etc. and try to get some entries in before the 30thApril. Looking forward to seeing you then!

HHCC – Upcoming Club Competitions

Hi All,

Just a quick reminder that we have two competitions active in April. Our normal Open competition plus the special Nature competition. Close dates are on the website and you’ll get a reminder 3 days in advance.

Note that the close date for the Nature Competition is on Sunday the 28th April which also coincides with our away weekend to Lithgow Ironfest for those who are attending. If you are going and want to submit for that competition you may want to get in early.

Also, one additional note on the upload process for the Nature competition. We will only have the digital upload classification. Because of this the upload “tick” boxes that you normally see to the left after each load to tell you which category you selected won’t be visible. This is because we only have the one default category – digital for that competition.

Best,

Dave
