Those not on Zoom but on Facebook can share on the Hedon Viewfinders group page as one post from 7pm on Wednesday 27 May. Use the hashtag #ViewfindersShadows so we can find them easily in order to be able to view them on Zoom too.

We’ll print out copies of the best as prizes.

Note: We’ll still be discussing ‘Flash Photography’ at the Zoom Meeting too.

The Eddie Vision Song Contest – Happy Hour with Hedon Viewfinders

Hedon Viewfinders photographic club has continued to meet online during the coronavirus crisis. The club has a reputation for being a fun, friendly and social place to learn about photography, and that has still been the case during the lockdown.

A weekly club meeting on Wednesdays at 7pm via Zoom invites members to meet, chat and discuss photography challenges. We have recently shared members’ best lockdown photos. These have included shots of Oil and Water (not mixing!) and taking multi-coloured photos. This week members are experimenting with Portrait Photography.

The club also meets every week on a Saturday for a Happy Hour (or two).

During Happy Hour, as well as traditional quizzes, members have held a Mexican Night and a Murder Mystery Night. And this Saturday the club is holding its very own version of Eurovision: The Eddie Vision Song Contest!

Members will each be allocated a country and will choose a song to compete in the club’s own version of Eurovision complete with the famous voting rounds from judges. With a photo element to the competition too, we are sure it will be an enjoyable evening with no-one receiving the ultimate Eurovision put-down of ‘Nil Point’.”

#viewfinders #dailyphotos #keepsmiling #stayhome

Why use the #hashtags? The hashtag is widely used in social media and creates a hyperlink so that all those using the same one can share content. So for example on Facebook, if you click the #viewfinders one, you’ll see content from other public sources, friends, etc.

Don’t forget! It’s LIVE CHALLENGES NIGHT on Facebook at 7pm on Wednesday 29 April. Just be ready to join in from 7pm at Hedon Viewfinders – Through the Lens (Members).

This will be LIVE CHALLENGE NIGHT. We’ll give members a project to complete within 20 minutes. The 20 minutes is time to plan, take your photos, and upload the best to the page.

We’ll offer some PRINTS of your BEST PHOTOS as PRIZES (more details to follow).

Modern cameras (especially camera phones/tablets via Apps) come packed with features including digital filters that you switch on before you take a photo, and effects that you can add afterwards to the image on your camera.

Discover (or re-discover) your in-camera features. Share your new way of looking at the world with us all.

Note: My Canon PowerShot A2600 didn’t have any in-camera features – so the photos here of a Star filter in use, are from my Panasonic Lumix FZ72 bridge camera.
