Entries impress judge
RENOWNED Brisbane photographer and physicist John Doody judged the Framed photo competition at the weekend and entries will be on display at the 2013 Bush Spirit Festival on Saturday.
Photography has been Mr Doody’s passion for the past 35 years and he was impressed by the number and quality of the entries.
Mr Doody was strongly influenced by his father who was a keen amateur photographer.
Watching the black and white prints appear before his eyes in the darkroom developing tray at their house in Warwick was “like magic” to a young boy.
His background as a physicist gives him an understanding of the optics and mechanics of modern cameras.
Mr Doody said the most significant photographic project he had been involved in was the Legacy of Light.
The exhibition featured the work of five generations of photographers, ranging from 1863–2012.
“The concept was developed in conjunction with my sister Kate Colfs and brother Paul Doody,” Mr Doody said.
“It traces the development of photography in our family, from the time my great-grandfather Christopher Roggenkamp arrived from Germany in 1863 and set up a photographic business in Warwick.”
North Burnett photographers can rest assured their entries in the Framed competition had a professional with a lifetime of experience judging their work.
