A Smashing Time with Hedon Viewfinders!

The crashing together of one or more water-filled objects and capturing that collision and resulting spillage in a photo sounds like a crazy idea!

WELL…. perhaps not ‘smashing’ but certainly a crashing time! At Hedon Viewfinders on Wednesday 24 August 2022 we are going to practice an experiment popularised by YouTube tutor Gavin Hoey.

The crashing together of one or more water-filled objects and capturing that collision and resulting spillage sounds like a crazy idea! But as the video shows, there is much to learn about camera settings and the use of flash and other lighting.

This will be an indoor session but depending on the weather there are some related exercises/experiments we can do outside too.

Bring your cameras, flash if you’ve got one, and a tripod is always useful.

Props and Experimentation Photography Night! Hedon Viewfinders Wed 8 Jan 2020

Bring in your interesting objects (ornaments, toys, instruments, flowers, etc) and any interesting kit you might have, and help create and share some photographic opportunities. This might be for still life, macro, bokeh shots, water shots – this is only limited by our imagination and space!

Our first meeting of 2020 takes place next Wednesday 8 January, 7pm at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon, HU12 8HH and will be another ‘Props Night – a chance to experiment’.

Some of you have got crystal balls (lensballs) for Christmas? Bring them along – what might we do with them?

Bring in your interesting objects (ornaments, toys, instruments, flowers, etc) and interesting kit you might have, and help create and share some photographic opportunities. This might be for still life, macro, bokeh shots, water shots – this is only limited by our imagination and space! As well as a chance for us to have a go at something different, it’s also a chance to practice with ideas that will work at our special joint meeting on Wed 29 January (not our normal Wednesday) with the Young Farmers Club – more about this at the next meeting!

If you need to get in early to set your prop up and claim table space, we’ll be open from 6:30pm. This is very much a chance to experiment – so if there is something you would really like to try, but don’t know where to start – then do get in touch and we’ll see what we can arrange!

Look forward to seeing many of you on Wednesday! New to photography? Come along, you are very welcome – talk to us about your new camera, kit and accessories, and how to use them.

Some of the photo opportunities we could set up are: – water/liquid drops or splash photography, mixing of oil and water effects, high speed flash, macro, polariser effects, rainy windows, light painting, etc – bring in your lensballs, gobos, filters and other optical props?

This is very much a chance to experiment and almost ‘anything goes’ really – and if there is something you would really like to try, but don’t know where to start – then do get in touch and we’ll see what we can arrange!
