The Paatsch Shield Presentation was be held at the Wangaratta Club, Wangaratta on Sunday the 24th of August. Approximately 15 from each club getting together for a great afternoon with good friends. Lunch was held at 12.30 PM followed by the presentation.
The subject was 'Howlong Cars' which was taken on the get together in July, the Judge was Jim Weatherill who travelled up from Melbourne for the presentation. The gap in the scores were no indication of the quality of images put up by both clubs.

Workshop - Getting off AUTO

Our friends from the Benalla Camera Club have invited WACC members to a workshop "Getting off AUTO" they are holding on the weekend of the 6th and 7th of September. The Lecturer is Craig Gurnett
Some subjects include:

  • Do you have a new camera and want to learn how to use it?
  • Does aperture, ISO and f-stop sound like a foreign language?
  • Do you want to learn to take better photos?
I myself attended one of these workshop a couple of years ago and can recommend it to basic or intermediate photographers or even if you just want to refresh your ideas and skills. View the flyer here

The Paatsch Shield, What A Great Outing

There was need to worry about the predicted rain for this event as we were presented with beautiful sunshine, although after a foggy start to the day.

Howlong Cars
Our annual challenge against the Benalla Camera Club was a great success at Howlong, with some 41 members from both clubs attending, and it was great to catch up with our Benalla friends again. The Plan worked as planned by meeting at the Howlong Country Bakery before the shoot, and after a cuppa we travelled in convoy to the photo location. After the photoshoot we will proceeded back to the Bakery for lunch, while some opted to eat in style at the Pub. I am looking forward to seeing some of the photos taken from the shoot.
A big thank you to Rex Forrester who allowed on to his property for the photoshoot.

Annual Photography Exhibition

The 2014 Annual Exhibition is currently on at the Gigs Art Gallery at the Gateway Village on the Lincoln Causeway.
The public have been impressed with the quality and diversity of the images on display, and the comments in the book indicate what a successful Exhibition it is:
      * 'Stunning work. Beautiful presentation'.

      * 'Awesome work!!'
The Exhibition runs until the 15th of June and Gigs is open daily, Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00am to 4.00 PM.
So we encourage you and your friends to come along and have a look.
