Marie and I are also members of the Masters Apprentices Camera Club. For the first time since being a member, I submitted my homework. This month the topic was your best images. I chose to have as the criteriFeb_Sinclair_K_1_Nannaa for best images being those that have a very strong emotional appeal for me that I have taken.

The first image is of my Nanna and it was taken on a film SLR with a 1600 ISO film so I didn’t need to use flFeb_Sinclair_K_2_Dadash. My Nanna had limited eye sight at this stage of her life and didn’t know that her picture was being taken. She was well into 90’s¬†and her mind was still sharp even though she had physical limitations. This image became a family favorite.

The next image is of my father. He was fooling around with a yellow cap. I managed to capture him in a candid moment again on a SLR with 1600 ISO film and without a flash. Everyone in the family loved this image.

Feb_Sinclair_K_3_MarieThe third image I submitted was of Marie, my wife. This image was taken in Hawaii in 1987 Рapproximately 3 months after we had first met. I have liked this image so much that it is on my bedside table and has been there almost 30 years now. This was taken on a SLR camera and was not posed at all Рjust a candid shot.

While I have many images that have strong emotional appeal, these 3 are the ones I chose for this exercise. Other pictures I have taken with my immediate family and my nieces and nephews also have strong emotional appeal but I could only choose three.

The first Brisbane Camera Group monthly competition topic is “creative”. I am working on some images for this and will share them once I have had the judges feedback. Marie and I both started in Brisbane Camera Group last year as B Grade members. This year we have been elevated to AB Grade so the competition becomes more difficult. That’s okay, creates a greater challenge to keep on improving and growing.
