Mem­bers hon­oured for su­perb im­ages of na­ture

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

South Waikato Cam­era Club has pre­sented its an­nual na­ture pho­tog­ra­phy awards.

The def­i­ni­tion of na­ture used by the club is broad, mean­ing a range of im­ages were en­tered.

For­mer Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion of­fi­cer John Green­wood judged en­tries in four cat­e­gories: prints – colour and mono­chrome, and pro­jected im­ages – colour and mono­chrome.

Peter Bea­z­ley won the colour prints cat­e­gory with an im­age of rocks in a stream in Lake Taupo.

Ann Gil­bert won the mono­chrome print sec­tion with a pic­ture of grass seed heads.

Roger Brownsey re­ceived the awards for both pro­jected im­age cat­e­gories with lace­bark flow­ers in the colour and gen­tian flow­ers in the mono­chrome.

At the awards pre­sen­ta­tion Mr Green­wood com­mented on the un­usual num­ber of frog im­ages en­tered, a re­sult of the club’s visit to the Waitakaruru Ar­bore­tum and Sculp­ture Park. He also said he was pleased to see mem­bers tak­ing ad­van­tage of the scope of na­ture.

Mr Green­wood felt sev­eral pho­tos were wor­thy of an hon­ours award which he gave to var­i­ous mem­bers in each sec­tion.

The next club night is an in­struc­tional one – ex­am­in­ing the the­ory of the colour wheel in pho­tog­ra­phy.
