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.

Hedon Viewfinders Photo Scavenger Hunt, Wed 10 July 2019, Meet Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon, HU12 8HH for 7pm prompt. Photo: Scavenging graffiti photographer. Newport. Viewfinders Isle of Wight trip.

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.

Viewfinders – Through the Lens (Members)

Have you visited? Paul Berriff and Hedon Viewfinders Photo Exhibitions. Hedon Museum Wed 24 April – Sat 15 June. Open every Wednesday and Saturday, 10am – 4pm.

Show & Tell, Constructive Critique and Winter Flowers!

HEDON Viewfinders next meets on WEDNESDAY 20 FEBRUARY 2019 at the Haven Arms but is also holding a Winter Flowers Photo Walk on SATURDAY 16 FEBRUARY at Sewerby Gardens. Hedon’s free and friendly group where learning about photography is fun!

Show & Tell and Constructive Criticism:

HEDON Viewfinders next meets on WEDNESDAY 20 FEBRUARY 2019 at the Haven Arms starting promptly at 7pm, and is a ‘Show & Tell’ and/or a Constructive Criticism session. You are invited to submit up to three images rather on memory stick/flash drive, or as prints. You may wish to simply show images you are proud of to us all, or you might opt to tell us what you like about them and how you achieved/created them. You can also opt to get some constructive criticism from other attendees about how they think the images may have been improved.

Those who have potential ideas for prints for our Exhibition on “Hedon” in April, May and June, might want to bring in smaller prints (new work, or at least taken in the last 12 months) and gauge a bit of opinion about them to see if it’s worthwhile getting them enlarged, mounted and framed.

Sewerby Gardens Winter flowers photography trip:

We are holding a trip to Sewerby Gardens for a Photo Walk on SATURDAY 16 FEBRUARY principally to experience and photograph the Winter flowers now in bloom! The 50 acre grounds can be explored for free and boast over 10,000 snowdrops and yellow Aconites and wild Cyclamen all in flower. We envisage meeting in the Sewerby Hall Visitor free car park at 11:00am (but keep an eye on this event page for updates). As well as the visit to Sewerby, there’s the options to explore Flamborough or Bridlington too to be decided by those attending.

All Welcome – you don’t have to be a ‘member’ to take part. There’s always enthusiastic photographers present to help with your camera settings and offer other advice should you need it.

Hedon Viewfinders will interest photographers of all levels; regardless of ability, whatever image making device kit or equipment you own. Novices particularly encouraged. Hedon’s free and friendly group where learning about photography is fun!
