Cudgegong Camera Club in 2014

Another year has passed and 2013 was a busy one for Cudgegong Camera Club.  We won't go over what we've been doing here but will concentrate on what we're going to do in 2014.

Firstly, Cudgegong Camera Club members were saddened by the sudden death of their President Sandy Smith.  Sandy was a driving force of the Cudgegong Camera Club for many years and president since 2012.  An avid traveller, Sandy often showed her photographs of places many of us had never heard of, let alone visited. Sandy was always encouraging and helpful to members and visitors and full of great ideas to further the Club.  We miss Sandy and are grateful to her for everything she achieved for the Club.

We've already had two meetings - our AGM and a session on car trails for our March meeting.  We are working on a program for the year which will be posted as soon as it's finalised at our April meeting.

Our next meeting will be looking at camera basics and the inter-relationship between aperture, ISO and shutter speed. 

Between meetings members have some topics which will be shown at each of the meetings.  These are:

February:  Silhouettes and Shadows
March:  Elements - Earth, Wind, Fire and Water
April:  Night
May:  Technology and Machinery
June:  Food
July:  Doors and Windows
August:  Motion/Movement
September: Landscapes
October:  Close up/Macro
November: Black and White
December:  Self-Portrait

We meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.00pm at Club Mudgee.  Visitors are welcome.  If you need any further information about Cudgegong Camera Club please email us at .

Cudgegong Camera Club News

It's been a while since our last blog and we've been busy doing various activities.  Our June competition was well attended and we had a record number of entries - 400!  One of the really pleasing things was the number of school students who participated.  Thanks kids.

We have also been involved with and ABC Television project called now and then.  This involves getting an old photograph of a streetscape, going to the spot where this photograph was taken, holding the photograph up and aligning as many components as possible to the existing streetscape and going click.  It is quite difficult but a lot of fun.  When our photo is uploaded to the ABC website, I'll post a link.

On Tuesday our meeting looked at lighting with one flash unit, studio lights and candle light.  Our presenter, Noel Dawson, was a great teacher with lots of knowledge.

We have an excursion to Ferntree Gully on 22 July.  If you are interest in coming along send an email to

Don't forget - new members are welcome.  We meet the first Tuesday of every month at 7.00pm and Club Mudgee.
