Club News – Lensballs, Lamps and Trophies!

Photography for everyone at Hedon Viewfinders at the Haven Arms on Wednesdays…

HEDON VIEWFINDERS continues to organise photography events at its Haven Arms venue on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. As ever, we always seek to encourage, welcome and support new members. You don’t have to book in advance, you can just turn up to take part in the town’s free, fun and friendly photography club.

Lensball Photography: They might also be known as crystal balls, but you don’t need one to plan your next shot! These fascinating aids to photography provide optics that create some fascinating effects. They can also be used as props in their own right.

You don’t need a lensball to take part in the event but if you have one, bring it along! This will be interesting to those who have never used a lensball, but we hope to provide something different to those who have.

Lensball Photography: 7pm on Wednesday 31 August 2022 at the Haven Arms in Hedon.

Macro or close-up Photography – a focus on lamps/bulbs: Macro photography is a wide-ranging subject, but at this meet-up, we are encouraging you to have a closer look at light bulbs as a subject. If you want to bring along your own (carefully!) as a subject, then please do. But we will have some props to play with.

Macro or close-up Photography – a focus on lamps/bulbs: 7pm on Wednesday 7 September 2022 at the Haven Arms in Hedon.


Presentation Night: We hope to present the annual Photographer of the Year Award and Young Photographer of the Year Shield to the winners resulting from the Open Photography Competition at Preston Show and Family Fun Day.

Additionally, we’ll be seeking volunteers to work on our ideas for next year’s show – plus we have exciting news to announce about a new club exhibition next year.

Presentation Night: Take your seats for 7pm on Wednesday 14 September 2022 at the Haven Arms in Hedon.

Socially distanced Club Photography events

Albeit restricted to six members at a time, we do hope to start ‘meeting’ once again for photography activities. Initially, these will be outdoors…

IT HAS BEEN over a year since the Club met in ‘normal’ circumstances. However, with the roll-out of the vaccines and the Government’s easing of lockdown restrictions, we can now look at holding some activities once again.

Albeit restricted to six members at a time, we do hope to start ‘meeting’ once again for photography activities. Initially, these will be outdoors although from *April 12 it may be possible to restart indoor club activities again (6-members-at-a-time socially-distanced workshops).

The Government’s roadmap out of lockdown and other advice and guidance is published at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-response-spring-2021/covid-19-response-spring-2021-summary

To begin our journey back to active photography, we are holding a Lens Ball photography walk early evening on Thursday 1 April in the Hedon area. If you would like to attend then you need to book via viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk and we’ll send further details.

Six places available only, but do get in touch anyway, and we can assess what demand there is for such activities.

Note: If you don’t have a Lens Ball, I have a spare that I can clean and sanitise for someone to use? Let me know, please. – Ray Duffill.
