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.

HEDON VIEWFINDERS meets again on Wednesday 14 November 2018 and our theme for the evening is “Light Painting” or playing with light!

Lots of special effects images can be created when light sources are moved in the dark. And at the Haven Arms on Wednesday (starting at 7pm) we are going to experiment (inside, and outside weather permitting) with the techniques behind creating these photos.

Light painting, painting with light, light drawing, or light art performance photography are terms that describe photographic techniques of moving a light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or space, or to shine light at the camera to ‘draw’, or by moving the camera itself during exposure of light sources.

Never done this before? Then come along to Viewfinders and have a go! Our meetings aim to be fun, whilst learning more about photography.
