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.

Task 27: In-camera filters and effects.

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.

It’s Happy Hour! Sat 28 March 2020 at 9pm.

After our first trial using Zoom, we’ve agreed to have weekly Club Meetings online every Wednesday night at 7pm. And ‘Happy Hour’ every Saturday at 9pm.

At the Club Meetings, we’ll aim to continue having fun with the hobby and pastime that we love so much, whilst Happy Hour will be a much more relaxed affair!

We invite you to join us for our first Happy Hour event (actually just over half-an-hour) on Saturday at 9pm – and here is the invitation link:

https://us04web.zoom.us/j/836189559

If you have downloaded the Zoom software already, then the Meeting ID: 836-189-559 is what will be useful.

Upon joining the meeting just before 9pm you will find yourself in the ‘Waiting Room’ and I’ll invite you to join the meeting from there. In the waiting room, you will have the opportunity to test your computer/device audio and video settings for use in the Happy Hour. If you click the link now, nothing much will happen, although you can download the meeting software. Any difficulties with the technology then do get in touch and we’ll try to help.

The event will be a light-hearted occasion. We want to firstly check everyone’s okay at this unsettling time, and offer comfort and advice if need be.

During the event everybody will be offered a moment in the spotlight should they wish, a spot to do something, say something, share something, etc. This will be for a minute or two-minute spot depending on how many join in. So you might tell a joke, tell us how you’re passing the time, play the ukulele, or share a photo or something on your computer. We’ll let you know how to use the software as we go along.

Our meetings are normally open to the public, and this will be no different – however, if you’re a new member, we just need to know that you are coming along – we won’t let strangers join the meeting.

Do check out Zoom, it might be useful to you for other things too: https://zoom.us/docs/en-us/covid19.html

Sign up to get news from the club. CONTACT US for more information. Free, fun and friendly photographic club. Open to all. No waiting list. No membership required.
