Last year I was involved in a couple of camera club committees and was really quite busy for most of the year. When I resigned from the committees I had hoped that I would have much more time to work on my photography and be able to enter the local competitions a bit more often. The year started with a hiss and a roar and I managed one ladder competition and that has been it. I just don’t seem to be able to find the time to organise myself that well and entry deadlines fly past before I have even clicked the shutter button.
There are still a couple more that I am keen to try for. The PSNZ Central Regional Salon is one, though at this stage I am not sure what I will enter. They have a Nature category and Open in both projected and print formats. I am going to be attending the convention this year all going well so will be able to see all the entries on display. It’s always fun when one of your own images is displayed among them.
The PSNZ Canon Online competition is another one that I have entered from time to time. It’s a bi-monthly thing for PSNZ members. I have yet to get any of my images into the top ten but I will continue to try when the time allows.
Tonight I collected a package from Camera Club for a ‘Photo 3’ competition. Much like the Canon Photo 5, this is a club run event where we are given certain objects that must be in the image. I will show you my attempts once I have them done – I only have two weeks to have them ready for judging.
