Artists and media exhibitied in 2020VISION

Age range of contributing artists ranged from twelve years upward.  Several works were digital images sent in from international artists.  These were photographed and sent on mobile 'phones, so the image quality varied trom really bad to utterly dreadful.  They were modified in Quinninup, using GIMP, printed at the Northcliffe Community Resource Centre and framed in Quinninup.  This is not an ideal way to present original drawings, but is the only practical way at this time.

Technobabble These images were made with a Sony a7, selected because being outdated it is cheap and it will function with Nikon and Leica lenses via adapters, but in honesty I have not really taken to it.  It does what I need from a digital camera, but is relegated to use for situations like this.
