I have always been interested in photography but struggled to match what I thought I saw, with the quality of the final prints. Frustration was always present especially during the pre-digital era. I joined the Hervey Bay Photography Club in 2013, thanks to Sandra Boles, and bought a Sony A77 . The new camera combined with the advice and mentoring from some of the excellent photographers within the Club increased my knowledge of photography. Post processing software certainly helped too. Club competitions are a great way to gauge your performance with your peers. In 2015 I moved into "A" Grade and bought the great Nikon D750. I look forward to learning more about this great hobby and my new camera.
