Local photographers got to capture birds of prey on camera when Exposure Unlimited – Beaudesert Camera Club recently held a bird photography day for its members.

The local club, which was established in 1994, aims to help members make the best of all photographic opportunities available in their own backyards and in the wider world.

At the club’s October monthly meeting, members presented projections of their birds of prey photographs from their early October outing and others shared examples of their printed and mounted photography.

At their birds of prey outing, they had the opportunity to put their skills to the test photographing birds including a sea eagle, owl, wedge-tail eagle and peregrine falcon.

Club President Denis Bettridge said it was a rewarding outing for all involved.

“Greg Sullavan of Sunburst Studio who organized the photography session put in a great effort with Mark Culleton the bird owner,” he said.

“Greg made sure everyone had their cameras properly adjusted and kept checking on them throughout the whole session.

“The afternoon started with a light rain shower passing and then the rest of the afternoon was overcast which made a perfect photography session with the setting sun coming out at the last moment as everyone was about to leave.

“All the members who were there had a great afternoon of photography and mateship and there was some great times of smiles and laughter.

Mr Bettridge also outlined future events for the club, like night sky photography, a Christmas break up dinner and Lightroom workshop.

The guest speaker for the Beaudesert Camera Club October meeting was the Beaudesert Bulletin’s Susie Cunningham.

Susie spoke about her self-taught style of photography as a journalist who takes her own photos, and how being able to take a decent photo had come in handy throughout her career beyond journalism.

The Beaudesert Camera Club meets monthly at the Beaudesert Community Arts and Information Centre.
