Skeleton Leaves by Claire
Congratulations to our Vice-President, Claire Carter on being awarded a prestiguous1st place in the Macro Art section of the:
International Garden Photographer
of the Year 2021
Claire explains .....
I used a macro lens and extension tubes to get as close as possible to the fine detail in these intricate, skeleton-like leaves (which I dyed different colours).
Then, a home-made lightbox and glass with tracing paper was used to diffuse the light and an off-camera flash beneath to burn out the whites and leave the detail in the foliage.
Congratulations also, to our own Mike Gibson whose recent exhibition and sale of work, including photographs and unique photographic jewelry, raised a fantastic ......
The exhibition was held to raise funds for the Mayfair Centre, and the club congratulates Mike for his tremendous success in achieving this considerble sum.
The centre provides and invaluable service to our community and this Mike's very generous and personal contribution will contribute to its ongoing success.
