South Waikato Cam­era Club re­cently held its an­nual Na­ture Study com­pe­ti­tion in four sec­tions that in­cluded both prints and pro­jected im­ages.

The judge was Bruce Shanks of Auck­land. Mem­bers were priv­i­leged to view a pro­gramme de­tail­ing Bruce’s jour­ney in the art of mak­ing im­ages.

These in­cluded some of his orig­i­nal for­mu­las for mono­chrome pro­cess­ing, us­ing all forms of pos­i­tive ma­te­ri­als for colour slides and cul­mi­nat­ing in his show­ing his three fel­low­ship sets.

He was most in­struc­tive about what de­tail needs to be in na­ture pic­tures.

Club pres­i­dent Yvaan Adams won the mono­chrome pro­jected im­age with a fab­u­lous pic­ture of a Hector’s dol­phin leap­ing from the sea.

Roger and Mar­garet Brownsey won the colour tro­phies with a print of a pukeko head de­tail and a New Zealand kea in the snow re­spec­tively.

Ann Gil­bert had a win­ning mono­chrome pic­ture of a group of the black-handed spi­der mon­keys.
