Our meeting on Wed 15 May will appeal to the curious! What kind of camera or image making device do people use? Which camera? And which lenses are their favourite? What gadgets and accessories? What flash, filters and fittings?

We are asking people to bring along your kit and camera bags and show us what you are ‘armed’ with when you go taking photos. If you are ‘self-contained’ with a mobile phone or compact, bring those along too.

You’ll be surprised how many people have the same equipment and sharing knowledge of what is available can really help us when seeking advice from each other on features, kit, accessories and apps. We’ll have a short break when people can meet up with others to ‘talk kit’ and ‘self-help’.

For the second part of the evening we are holding a constructive critique session and ask you to bring along one or two images that you would like to share with us so that we can discuss what we like about the photos, and how we think they might have been improved. Bring your photos along as prints (remember a protective cover for handling), or on a memory stick/flash drive. For those in the Facebook Group we’ll set up an album where you can post your images.

We have an extra session arranged on Tuesday for those interested in developing their editing skills. It’s a self-help group on using Layers, Blending Modes, and Masking in Photoshop. We’ll look at some examples on the big screen (using Elements) and those taking part can have a go themselves. You are welcome to bring along your own laptop.

As well as Photoshop and Elements, this should be useful for those that use Affinity Photo, Luminar and some other programs that use layers.

Do visit the web page and see what’s planned for the rest of the year.

Viewfinders – Through the Lens (Members)

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!
