Meet up in Paull for photography on Monday 22nd July (currently sunny intervals forecast), meeting at 8pm – NOTE 8pm not 7pm – sunset at 9.15pm.

To give it an edge, we should give ourselves a challenge to capture Paull ‘differently’. Perhaps B&W, infrared, through a lensball, long-exposure, etc. Use your imagination!

We’ve always had a good turnout at our Paull trips so hope to see lots of you there (weather permitting). If you’ve just joined the club via this mailing list, then “Welcome!” please come and introduce yourself at this event – always lots of other photographers present willing to talk cameras, settings, etc and offer tips and advice.

Meet at the glass wall outside the Humber Tavern at 8pm (see: https://w3w.co/gravy.piper.corn) early birds might want to meet for a drink beforehand in the beer garden 🙂

Everyone is welcome. Please share.

Something very different organised for Wednesday’s meeting: A Scavenger Hunt for photographs! Bring your cameras, pen and paper, and get to the Haven Arms in time for 7pm. We’ll quickly split into teams, organiser Glenn Stallard will explain what’s expected, and then armed with clues, the aim will be for you and your team members to bring your photographic record back with you. It’s not meant to be intensely competitive…. but which team will be the first back! 🙂

Looks like it’s going to be lots of fun and can take place whatever the weather.

The next meeting is a field trip to get photos of some of the amazing street art graffiti that makes up what has become known as the “Bankside Gallery” and takes place on Wed 24 July, 7pm. We’ll meet at a location to be notified.


Website Galleries – Chance to showcase your work.

There has been a request from some members not active on Facebook on how they might share their work, with some keen on getting feedback, constructive criticism, etc. Obviously the website is a place where this can happen. If any Viewfinders wish to take advantage of this, then email your work to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk and for those that send several photos we can set up your own gallery page in your name that you can link to and share with others should you wish to showcase your work.

Example of a Web Gallery Page.

Hedon Viewfinders Photographic Club competition results

HEDON VIEWFINDERS held its first trophy award competition on Wednesday (12 June 2019) and it was really successful. Participants had to attend the meeting in order to get their images entered. Organiser Glenn Stallard reported on the group’s Facebook Page afterwards:

“Fantastic night tonight folks, some great photos and three worthy winners.

B&W Section winner Cheryl Jagger.
Nature Section winner Peter Loft.
Landscape section winner Colin Booth.

Well done to the three winners, hope you like your trophies. Thanks also to all that entered the competition.

As members have asked to repeat the night and as the night was so successful the answer is a big yes, I’m sure we could arrange it, lets say every three months, Trophies for the winners and with the possibility of a small prize, maybe a medal for the runners up as well. Hopefully more of the club’s members entering next time.

Well done to everyone.”

The winning entries are below with the trophy winners.

Colin Booth, Cheryl Jagger and Peter Loft

If you have ideas for future categories for trophy club competitions then please get in touch.

We meet fortnightly at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH.

“What’s in your camera bag?” / Constructive Critique – Wed 15 May 2019

Our meeting on Wed 15 May will appeal to the curious! What kind of camera or image making device do people use? Which camera? And which lenses are their favourite? What gadgets and accessories? What flash, filters and fittings?

Wednesday 15 May 2019, Haven Arms, Havenside, HU12 8HH at 7pm

Our meeting on Wed 15 May will appeal to the curious! What kind of camera or image making device do people use? Which camera? And which lenses are their favourite? What gadgets and accessories? What flash, filters and fittings?

We are asking people to bring along your kit and camera bags and show us what you are ‘armed’ with when you go taking photos. If you are ‘self-contained’ with a mobile phone or compact, bring those along too.

You’ll be surprised how many people have the same equipment and sharing knowledge of what is available can really help us when seeking advice from each other on features, kit, accessories and apps. We’ll have a short break when people can meet up with others to ‘talk kit’ and ‘self-help’.

For the second part of the evening we are holding a constructive critique session and ask you to bring along one or two images that you would like to share with us so that we can discuss what we like about the photos, and how we think they might have been improved. Bring your photos along as prints (remember a protective cover for handling), or on a memory stick/flash drive. For those in the Facebook Group we’ll set up an album where you can post your images.

Tuesday 14 May 2019, Haven Arms, Havenside, HU12 8HH at 7pm

We have an extra session arranged on Tuesday for those interested in developing their editing skills. It’s a self-help group on using Layers, Blending Modes, and Masking in Photoshop. We’ll look at some examples on the big screen (using Elements) and those taking part can have a go themselves. You are welcome to bring along your own laptop.

As well as Photoshop and Elements, this should be useful for those that use Affinity Photo, Luminar and some other programs that use layers.

Our next meeting at the Haven Arms on Wednesday 1st May at 7pm is a PRACTICAL PHOTOGRAPHY session “MESSING WITH WATER”. Bring your cameras, tripods and flash units if you have them.
