We hope to CREATE a high quality CLUB PHOTO BOOK for display at the Exhibition (Wed 24 April to Sat 15 June 2019).

Those that would like their images to be included in the photo book need to email through a high-resolution image (open theme) which best shows their improved photography as a result of club activity, whether at a meeting, on a field trip or posting to our Facebook Group page.

Email one image to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk please. The size of the book will be very much dependent on the responses to this appeal.

The Exhibition featuring ‘typical’ club photographs from members on the theme of “Hedon” takes place downstairs at the Hedon Museum (accessed via a snicket on Watmough’s Arcade, Hedon) every Wednesday and Saturday from Wednesday 24th April until Saturday 15th June, 10am – 1pm each day.

Meanwhile, upstairs at the museum, an exhibition of iconic 1960’s photographs taken by Paul Berriff is on display.

Reminder about the Evening with Paul Berriff on Wednesday night 17 April.

Exhibition, Meetings & Members’ Galleries

JUST a reminder that the deadline for submission of original prints for the Exhibition on the “Hedon” theme is our next meeting on Wednesday, 3 April 2019 at the Haven Arms. Please make sure you place your prints in a protective cover to keep them clean during selection. More information at: Exhibition (Guidance).

The April 3 meeting will also serve as one of our network meetings with an opportunity to catch up with other members and informally chat about club activities and plans. We’ll have some of our magazines, books and equipment available for members to loan.

Ticket sales for the Paul Berriff meeting on Wednesday 17 April are going very well. It is possible that we will be ‘full’ unless you’ve booked or purchased your tickets in advance.

There is still time to book on the 4-day Torquay club trip on Friday 7 June 2019.

We are going to do more to populate the website with examples of work from the many viewfinders who make up our fun and friendly club. The following is a random selection gleaned with permission from our Facebook Group page – if you would like your image to appear in one of our website galleries, then email to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk

Contact us for more information. Free, fun and friendly photographic club. Open to all. No membership required.

Light painting night at Hedon Viewfinders – Wed 23 Jan 2019

Light painting night:

After the success and enjoyment of our last light painting night, we are having another go at our next meeting on Wednesday 23 January 2019 at the Haven Arms (Havenside, Hedon, HU12 8HH) starting at 7pm. The main light painting exercises will take place outside, but we have alternative ideas should the weather be too bad.

Dramatic shots are available remarkably easily on cameras where you can control shutter speed, aperture and ISO, but mounting on a tripod is recommended. However, at our last session, members also got good shots on mobile phones too.

Glenn Stallard will be leading the session and his advice is to “Wrap up warm! And there’ll be advice for members on which camera settings to use.”

Exhibition 2019:

The Hedon Viewfinders exhibition 2019 takes place from Wednesday April 24 to Saturday June 15 at the Hedon Museum. The theme of the Exhibition is “Hedon” and we are asking members to submit original and new work that reveals the ancient town in a new light. Prints (approximately 20-30) to be displayed in the exhibition are likely to be framed and mounted up to 50x40cm but we will issue further advice on this. For those members from Hull and surrounding towns and villages, we will organise some Hedon photo walks, and otherwise issue guidance on getting your shots of the town; its characteristics, flora and fauna, features and people, etc.

We will be exhibiting downstairs at the Hedon Museum whilst upstairs will be an exhibition by Paul Berriff OBE of his iconic photos from the 1960’s. Paul is an award-winning photographer and documentary film maker – and I’m pleased to announce that Paul will be speaking at a Hedon Viewfinders special meeting on Wednesday 17 April on his extraordinary life experiences. This will be ticketed event and should not be missed!

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, fun and friendly photography group.
