UPDATE ON MEET-UPS: Covid-19 restrictions.
At our BOOKABLE workshops INSIDE at the Haven Arms, we have to continue to limit to less than six people. Participants will need to WEAR A FACE COVERING when not sat down. However, we are not restricted to Wednesdays but can use the facilities at other times too. OUTDOORS activities are legally limited up to six people as well.
Within these restrictions, we can continue to gather for bookable activities. We are developing a list of what hopefully will be interesting workshops, some of which are available to book now.
On Wednesday 30 September the workshop will look at Light Sculpturing; using longer exposures, a darkened room and torches to paint ethereal light on subjects. Inspired by the work of US photographer Harold Ross.
Long Exposure workshops.
Night photography – groups up to six. Book in advance and participants will arrange the session between themselves to ensure convenient dates and shooting conditions.
Daylight long-exposures. Including use of Neutral Density filters. Groups of between 3 and 6 depending on subject and location. Currently looking to create a Waterfalls group.
Based on an event seen at The Photography Show, this experimental workshop will light a subject/model whilst throwing flour in the background with colourful lights illuminating the ‘explosion’ of flour. Messy – So will be doing it outside so weather dependent. This is taking place on Wed 7 October 2020 but will be repeated because of the interest.
Other news: A new YouTube channel started this year and is highly recommended. Of interest to photographers of all abilities, Photography Online publishes monthly on the last Sunday of the month. Do subscribe to the channel and watch the earlier monthly episodes from January.
We are the only Hedon-based photographic club. It’s free to join in and take part, and the club prides itself on its good reputation for its fun and friendly approach.
Find our Haven Arms meeting place with what3words: Addressing the World in three words
ALWAYS one of our most enjoyable meet-ups of the year at Hedon Viewfinders as we all create brilliant images with burning wire wool, lights, lasers and other associated wizardry at this practical photography session led by Glenn Stallard.
Using slower shutter speeds, different light sources and some simple technical gizmos and a with a heavy dose of individual imagination as you shoot, it’s possible to create really dramatic images.
Turn up to join in the fun indoors and outdoors (weather permitting) from 7pm at the Haven Arms on Wednesday 30 October 2019. If you have never done this before you will be amazed how easy it is to capture great images!
Also if people are interested, we can look at arranging a follow-up meeting to show how you can further edit your images afterwards to create even more pleasing photographs. We’ll arrange on the night for those interested.
Call for submissions to the Hedon Viewfinders Yearbook 2019.
We are producing a YEARBOOK of FAVOURITE IMAGES taken by our members in 2019. If you receive this notification as an email then you are invited to submit ONE IMAGE for publication in the book.
The DEADLINE to EMAIL your favourite image for the book is SATURDAY NOVEMBER 30 2019. Email your favourite image which should be of the highest resolution possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participation is key here, so even if you haven’t attended the Club for a while, then please consider being part of the Yearbook. It’s free to be included.
The book will be designed and set up on Tuesday 3rd December and those interested can come along and help in its design, look and appearance.
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.”
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! 7pm at The Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon, HU12 8HH.
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.
Hedon Viewfinders WEDNESDAY 14 NOVEMBER 2018 At the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon, HU12 8HH. Get there for 7pm for a prompt start. Free, fun and friendly photography club. ALL WELCOME
