As a part of Camberwell Camera Club’s tradition, the Club will be setting up a Photo Booth at the Camberwell Market on Sunday, 10th of July. Please come visit their Photo Booth, get your picture taken and invite your family and friends! The booth will be situated on the western side of the Market, behind the ANZ Bank and will operate from 9.00 am to 11.00 am. As in previous years, there will be no charge for the photos.
This will be the 7th year of the Camberwell Camera Club (CCC) organising a photoshoot. On average the CCC photograph 50-55 groups of people over a Sunday (individuals, families, groups of friends) with a number of photos for each group. It is estimated that over the years the Club have taken about over 1,000 photos.
What is the secret to capturing a perfect portrait?
“To capture the character of the model or, in case of family groups, the relationship within the group such a parents’ love of the child and the child love of parents.“
The CCC provides this as a service to the local community. Members of Club donate their time and expertise at no cost to the persons photographed.
The most satisfying part for photographers is that the same people come year after year and that they enjoy the atmosphere of the activity and appreciate the end result.
Many club members have had individual exhibitions or taken part in group photographic exhibitions. Quite a few CCC members received local (Australian) and international awards for their work.
