Club Night

The monthly club exhibition enables you to share photos with other members of the club.  It is also one of the best the tools we have to provide you with the opportunity to improve photography related skills from the camera, in the digital darkroom and in appreciation of photography as art. 

Members are asked for their ideas and from these, we create the Schedule of topics.  These topics may be of things you would never normally shoot, they may require you to use a camera technique that is new or different, it may also include a favourite subject.  We hope you enjoy the challenge.  

As well critique given on our images each month by the judges, points are awarded - Bronze (71-79 points), Silver (80-89 points), and Gold (90-100 points).

We would like to acknowledge and thank Bunbury Camera House as our sponsor.  Members are entitled to a 25% discount on Prints for Club Night Exhibition (on presentation of approved member card)

If you would like to print a hard copy of the 2021 schedule so you can put it in you bag, glove box on your fridge or wherever it is handy, you can access it in the link below here, or under the "Ëxhibition Topics" tab in the Forum.  It is sized to be a trifold A4 document and shoud be set to print double sided. The printable schedule also has the Club Night Exhibition Rules on it.

Please note: Meetings are the generally the last Thursday of the month, but please refer to the exhibition schedule.
