The PCYC Lithgow Photography Group meets on the third Tuesday of every month at the PCYC, Hoskins Avenue, Lithgow. Each month members submit images relating to a chosen subject which are displayed on a board. The subject for the month of May was “body parts” and the winner was Robyn Collins with her charming baby’s feet photo. Other activities include interesting presentations from other photographers and recently David Spillane gave a talk and demonstration on how to successfully cut mats (mounts) for photographs. The Photography Group has run the first of a very successful series of photographic workshops during the month of May. Local photographer, David Rawsthorne gave a “Star Trails” workshop at the Blast Furnace; Philip Ramsden gave a presentation and hands-on workshop on macro photography; Ron Irving’s “Understanding Your Camera” answered questions for many people about how to drill down into the never-ending menus in their cameras and the last workshop on HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography was given by Steve Mullarkey on 31 May. The Photography Group hopes to make the month of May photography month in Lithgow – a great initiative for tourism in our area. The PCYC Lithgow Photography Group holds an annual exhibition and this year LithgowFoto 2014 will be from 4-29 June at Eskbank House. Other activities include monthly excursions and photography discovery walks. The photo to the left is “waiting for the wind” by club memebr and local photography enthusiast Robyn Collins that she took at the Macro Workshop by Phil Ramsden held on Saturday 17 May 2014.
