The Paatsch Challenge Shield 2015

The Paatsch Challenge Shield

This year the theme was 'Finding the Past at Beechworth'. The competition is held each year between the Wodonga/Albury and Benalla Camera Clubs and takes the form of the hosting club choosing a date/ location/ theme and both clubs meeting for a photo shoot. Each club chooses 12 images to represent the club. The hosting club then sends all the images (EDI) to a judge for scoring. Later in the year the two clubs meet up for a 'presentation day', and to find out the winner of the Paatsch Shield.
This year it was Benalla Camera Club's turn to host the event and there was a good attendance from both clubs.

The Start of the Ghost Tour.

The August Meeting - 'Open Subject'

Great to see so many brave the cold weather for the August meeting. Our Judge for the Competition was Vicki Moritz.
Unfortunately due to an accident our guest speakers from CR Kennedy, Scott Bickle (Victorian Area Manager) and Michael Britt, were unable attend the meeting so it will be rescheduled for next month.
Members are reminded that next month due images are for Set Subject 'Backlit' and images for the Photographic Challenge "Pets or Domestic Animals".
Also an event to remember is the annual Paatsch Shield Challenge against the Benalla Camera club is coming up on Sunday the 13th of August at Beechworth and we would like as many that can to come along.

Astrophotography Workshop - 17th May

Below, left The Bridge and right the Milky Way over Bellbridge. Astrophotography

On Sunday night 17th of May, Mark Slater conducted for the club an astrophotography workshop at Bellbridge on the Hume Weir.
This workshop had to be conducted at short notice because it was dependent on weather conditions.
It looked like we were in for a cold night, however the weather was quite pleasant and so was the night, which was well attended by members.
A big thank you to Mark for his time and effort on the night.

WACC Road trip - Sunday 15th March

A roll-up of 28 for the road trip on Sunday met up at Bunnings in Wodonga and headed down the track to Yackandandah, Myrtleford and Beechworth capturing the required images along the way.
The weather couldn't have been better, and everyone enjoyed the day out which took around a lazy 5 hours for some and longer for others.
The winners were: Denise Organ, Vicki Cain, Brian Paatsch, Sharon Alston and David Willis.
Some images are available for viewing on the Outings page.
