At Hedon Viewfinders: Photography & Journalism and Darkroom (Film) Photography

Photography and Journalism, Darkroom Photography, Alternative Printing Techniques, AND Film & Vintage Night. Field Trips – Hedon Photo Walk and Fungi Foray.

POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE:

Photography and Journalism:

The speaker at our next meeting on Wednesday 4 September is IAN DAY FRPS. Ian is the Deputy Editor of The Yorkshire Post and Yorkshire Evening Post. He was awarded his Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society (FRPS) for his services to press photography.

His presentation is all about the work of his team of photographers and the images they make and gives a great insight into documentary photography and journalism.

The meeting takes place at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon, HU12 8EF on Wednesday 4 September 2019 starting at 7pm prompt.

A meeting will still take place.

Darkroom Photography, Alternative Printing Techniques, AND Film & Vintage Night.

We are also pleased to announce that Tobias Beach-Wyld (Toby) comes to the club on Wednesday 18 September to tell us all about Darkroom Photography but also alternative printing techniques. To mark Toby’s visit, the club is declaring the night ‘Film & Vintage Night’ and we are asking you to bring in your old film cameras and kit (whether in use or not), and particularly any ‘vintage’ cameras. We’ll provide some table space to display your pre-digital kit.

“I’m sure this will attract those film buffs who are looking for old kit, so could provide an opportunity for private selling, buying and swapping. Also  we’ll try and source some new film stock for people to buy.” – Ray Duffill

You never know, this might prompt some of you to take up or re-take up film photography!! Plus old cameras, I think, make beautiful photography subjects….

The meeting takes place at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon, HU12 8EF on Wednesday 18 September 2019 starting at 7pm prompt.

Field Trips:

Hedon Photo Walk – Sunday 15 September – Meet at the Haven Arms Car Park at 11am.

Torquay and The English Riviera 

Learning about seascapes (Isle of Wight).

As well as our meetings which aim to be a mix of both practical and instructional content, we also aim to provide opportunities to get out and about with our cameras, visit exhibitions, attend events of interest, and to take photographs in the company of other enthusiastic photographers. Our outings might be an hour catching a sunset somewhere, full day trips, or indeed a fully-fledged photo holiday.

On Friday 7 June 2019 we are taking part in a 4-day trip to Torquay and the English Riviera as part of a National Holidays breakaway. This is the latest in such trips which have seen us visiting Liverpool (inc The Terracotta Warriors exhibition), Durham, and the Isle of Wight amongst other places. The advantage of these trips is that you can focus as much time as you want on taking photographs of interesting places and people, and concentrate on your composition, technique, etc, in the knowledge that everyone else with you is keen to do the same.

The Torquay 4-day Special Breakaway with National Holidays coaches costs £149 includes an excursion to Dartmouth and whilst we can’t guarantee the weather, offers both beautiful seaviews and landscapes to capture. Includes three nights dinner, bed & breakfast. Evening entertainment in the hotel. Interested? Get in touch and we’ll send you further information and the holiday reference number.

Hedon Viewfinders visit to St Augustine’s Church – Wed 17 Oct 2018

HEDON VIEWFINDERS visits the town’s ‘King of Holderness’ the parish church of Saint Augustine on Wednesday 17 October.

Within the church walls is represented the spiritual and civic history of Hedon. The exterior is undoubtedly the town’s most photographed feature, but this visit will give you the chance to record the interior in photos and attempt to capture the history, architecture, atmosphere and character of the place.

Please meet at the North Transept doorway (the one facing Market Hill where the village green and beacon is located) in time for a prompt 7pm start.

We will make a collection towards church funds.

ALL WELCOME – you don’t have to be a ‘member’.

Hedon Viewfinders will interest photographers of all levels regardless of ability, and whatever image making device (whether camera or phone), kit or equipment owned. Novices particularly encouraged. Free, fun and friendly way to learn (and teach!) about photography.
