Hedon Viewfinders Photography Club at the Haven Arms

Hedon Viewfinders Photography Club Meeting: Wednesday, 3 November 2021 7pm at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH.

Meeting: Wednesday, 3 November 2021 7pm at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH.

A bit of planning for our Programme of meetings for the next year 2022. The session will feed into and help Glenn design the Programme.

Camera and kit surgery: Have you got questions about your kit; settings, features, or photography techniques, etc. Whatever your issue, let us know in advance, and we’ll try to help via other members of the group and/or via YouTube, etc.

One suggestion is to break the meeting down into smaller self-help groups; this could be a Canon user-group for example, or maybe a group for those regularly using Bridge cameras?

Also, the busy nature of last Wednesday’s meeting meant we did not run our #spooky print challenge – so we’ll do that. Bring in your 6×4, 7×5 print that best fits the theme, and we’ll jointly pick a ‘winner’.


Advance Notice. Wednesday 24 November 2021 – We are holding a joint meeting with the Young Farmers Club in Burton Pidsea for another fun photography session. Takes place at The Memorial Hall in the village. Get there at 7pm for the set up ready for a 7.30pm start.

Wednesday 20 October 2021: 

We are meeting at the Hedon Museum from 7pm – 8pm. This is a chance to have a look around the Museum and also to see Ray’s mini-exhibition. There are two other interesting displays too; Artist John Parks has a collection of flower paintings on display, and Wood Turner Morley Richards has a fascinating collection of items made on his lathe.

You can Park in Hedon’s Iveson Close car park and the Museum Entrance is located at: https://w3w.co/caves.consoles.scorch.

The Museum is a voluntary enterprise relying on grants and donations for its existence, so we will hold a collection on the night towards its funds – suggest a £2 minimum donation.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available!

EGG CHALLENGE!

As an extra for the meeting, we are issuing an EGG CHALLENGE. Bring your best print of an Egg (a 6×4 or 5×7 will do) and we’ll have an appropriate prize for the one chosen by us all as the winner!

The competition was inspired by the image “A Wide Load” by Jim Uney.
