Creative Lens

If you’ve wondered where I’ve been, I’ve been away for a week on the coast near Newcastle, NSW, participating in a week long photography course called Creative Lens.

I can’t believe how great the location was, how friendly the group was and how much I learnt and relearnt over the 6 days.

For anyone wanting to take their photography to the next step, to get a boost along and to be immersed in loads of brilliant photographic opportunities, give this a go. From the sunrises to the sunsets and everything in between it was all magic. I’ve been to places I didn’t even know existed.

Len’s a friendly fellow with a mountain of experience that he shares freely. He teaches in a kind and gentle way and helps everyone, both experienced and less experienced…

Here are my entries to the Dorrigo Mountain Arts, Art from the Heart, Exhibition.

The one far left was the Overall Winner of the exhibition…and may I say there was certainly some brilliant art so I was quite amazed and surprised….and delighted and dead chuffed to be recognised as having the champion art out of 170 exhibits.

Here’s what the judges said,
“Clare Colins _- Moonlight Fence
Delightful mystic light infuses the grainy, textured surface with a complexity beyond the apparent simplicity of the composition.
An ethereal tour de force enhanced by the rich coloration and the well considered framing
