NEXT ONLINE MEETING – Wednesday 1 April 2020 on Zoom 6:30pm and Facebook at 7pm. Note: The Zoom meeting will be recorded.

Photographers and friends – Join us in our public meeting online. From 6.30pm onwards you can join us on Zoom at the following link:

https://us04web.zoom.us/j/927443060 (opens in a new window tab).

From 6:30pm you’ll have a chance to join the meeting and test your sound/visual settings and chat and meet up with your friends from the club. The meeting will be called to order at 7pm and we’ll consider the following Agenda:

      1. Quick update on the coronavirus outbreak as necessary (and if necessary).
      2. Our 2020 Exhibition/Competition – Saturday 1 August – Preston (pandemic and Government restrictions permitting).
      3. Our DAILY PHOTO tasks – Entertaining the Nation. Your ideas needed! For the previous tasks, permission to use your photos on the website.
      4. Club Photography Projects during the crisis. Your ideas needed!
      5. Any Other Business? – Send through to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk.

If there are any questions about your camera, settings, features, kit, etc that you wish to ask, email those as well, at the end of the meeting we’ll go back into general chat and try to pair people up with those who can help.

Ambitiously, during the meeting, we’ll also be attempting to keep the Facebook Group page alive and updated with meeting news and views too, so we can feed those back and forth.

As a public community of photographers, we’re keen to look out for each other and help where we can. Do email us with any concerns or worries during these scary times.

NEXT HAPPY HOUR!

We invite you to join us for our next Happy Hour! event on Zoom on Saturday 4 April at 9pm – and here is the invitation link:

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

Whilst at the Club Meetings we aim to continue having fun with the hobby and pastime that we love so much, Happy Hour, however, will be a much more relaxed affair!

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.
