Our Judge for September

Hi All,

Yesterday we received our reminder email that our closing dates for entering the September competition are rapidly approaching. This Saturday for our digital entries and next Saturday for our print entries.

Our Set Subject for September is Machinery. Our definition for this is:
Any type of machinery in any shape IE can be all rusted away. Part of a car is OK provided the machinery component is the dominant part of the image. A photo of a car doesn’t meet the criteria.

Our judge for September is Michael Lynch. Michael gave a very thorough and informative presentation on B & W at our last tutorial night. Here is a little bit of information about Michael “Mick”.
Michael Lynch has been practicing photography since 1972 and is a successful entrant in National and International photographic competitions, and over the years has acquired many awards and is now a regular International Entrant. He is an Accredited Judge and still judge’s competitions throughout NSW camera clubs.
Michael has great interest in all aspects of photography encouraging and enjoys helping beginners and is encouraged by the magnificent work that local club members are producing in their local competitions. He is a passionate Black & White landscape, animal, wedding and portrait photographer.

Good luck to everyone and if anyone needs any more information you can email me on suewinsley@iinet.net.au or ring me on 0417677438

Cheers, Sue Winsley (Competition Steward).
