Light Painting – July 20th Competition
It seems that despite a workshop and an outing dedicated to the set subject Light Painting proved a bit too much of a challenge for many of our members, with entry numbers in the Set Subject very low. But a few brave souls tested the waters with some interesting and creative results.
Kerry Malec turned her image into a Monster Mask which also looks a little like an owl.
Ron Hassan and Duart McLean each had a different take on the Port Willunga sticks.
And Helen Whitford momentarily fooled judge Matt Makinson with her fake Northern Lights.
Matt, a professional photographer whose business Black and White Photographics provides great service to many photographic club members on the north side of town, gave constructive criticism of every image from a different perspective. As someone who works with illustrative or art photography he focused on techniques to improve the presentation and sale potential of images, addressing elements such as paper type, vignetting and selective treatment to part of an image. Members appreciated Matt’s fresh approach – even if he didn’t grant any 10’s!
