A moving moment

Ladysmith Camera Club’s June Photo of the Month contest themed on ‘Motion.’

A shot of a trumpeter swan chasing a mute swan at Esquimalt Lagoon in February was a moving moment in many ways.

For Nanaimo photographer Erika Nadon it was the perfect choice as the winning image for the Ladysmith Camera Club’s June Photo of the Month contest themed on ‘Motion.’

The next photo club meeting takes place Tuesday, July 26, 7 p.m. at Hardwick Hall on High Street at Third Avenue in Ladysmith.

Brian Clemens, an “avid and talented Nanaimo-based photographer,” will discuss compositional techniques you can use to improve your photography.

Everyone is welcome to the Camera Club meetings. Non-members pay a $5 drop-in fee. The Club welcomes new members from novice to pro. More information at LadysmithCameraClub.com.
