Mike Covell Meeting Wed 15 June 2022 REMINDER

Tonight Hedon Viewfinders Photography Club hosts Mike Covell on “East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2”.

The meeting will start promptly at 7pm so please arrive early. Need to get everybody served and sat down, and a quiet bar area for the 7pm prompt start. ALL WELCOME.

The talk by Mike Covell is FREE to attend. But there will be a collection to cover costs.

Facebook Weekly Photo Game.

Will all members go into the first Facebook game album and vote on members’ photos before 7pm tonight, please? Note: If your photo isn’t in the album it cannot be marked. If anyone is having problems getting theirs into the album, please ask. Contact Glenn Stallard via the Facebook Group.

Mike Covell talk revealed… and Week 22 Challenge: Jubilee!

“East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2” is our talk by Mike Covell, and perhaps unsurprisingly our Week 22 Challenge is the #PlatinumJubilee

East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2

FOLLOWING the recent poll then the talk by Mike Covell (author, historian, researcher) most requested by members is “East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2“. The talk by Mike will take place on Wednesday 15 June at the Haven Arms promptly at 7pm. Members and visitors are asked to arrive early to find their seats and get their drinks ready for a 7pm start.

Take a walk along the coast or the countryside and the likelihood of finding remnants of the defences put in place to protect the country from invasion is higher than you might think. Some are better preserved than others, and of course, as photographers, many of these make exciting subjects to discover and make images from!

The meeting is FREE to attend, but we will be making a collection to cover costs.


Week 22 of 52-Week Challenge – The Jubilee!

Millions will be marking the Platinum Jubilee over the next few days. Your challenge this week is not only to capture the events in images but to record those parts of the celebrations that might be overlooked by others. Millions of photos will be taken during the long bank holiday weekend, whilst many will sit on phones or camera memory cards remaining unseen, others will be pored over by future generations as unique pictures capturing the mood, atmosphere and characters involved. You know what YOUR challenge is for this Week 22!

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.

We are Flying on Wednesday at Hedon Viewfinders!

Something different from Hedon Viewfinders – free, fun and friendly photography club.

At Hedon Viewfinders on Wednesday 18 May 2022 at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH.

FLYING

FLYING. This will be both a creative and technical session. Creatively, how can you interpret “Flying”? What props, kit, and gear can you bring to implement your project around the theme of flying?

Think of ‘flying’ in the broadest sense. It might not be just drones, helicopters and UFOs, but might be objects or people frozen in flight, might employ feathers and paper – imagination is key here!

Think about using some of the technical skills we’ve practised in recent weeks to help create your images.

Look out for our related Week 20 Photography Challenge on Monday.

PANNING Week 19 – and at Wednesday’s meeting too

PANNING is our Week 19 photography challenge! And we’ll be discussing this at the next meeting too!

#viewfinderschallenge
#viewfinderschallengeweek19

WEEK 19 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge 2022 – PANNING:
Take a picture of a moving subject whilst moving the camera so that you blur the background to show movement. Shutter speed and handling your camera are crucial here.
It takes a bit of practice, but you can create a relatively sharp subject combined with a background that features motion blur for some stunning images.
Your challenge: Practice, and try to master panning.

Easter Eggcelence Night at Hedon Viewfinders! Wed 13 April 2022

Using paraphernalia associated with Easter (religious, bunnies, chicks, eggs, etc) then let us create some great images!

ANOTHER FUN NIGHT is expected at Hedon Viewfinders as we celebrate Easter! We need thinking caps on folks as we ask photographers to come and create scenes that would look fitting on an Easter Card!

Chicken or Egg? By Michelle Atkinson.

Using any of the symbols or paraphernalia associated with Easter (religious, bunnies, chicks, eggs, etc) then let us create some great images: Serious and moody, fun and humorous, mono or colour, the genre choice of the scene is yours.

Being a school holiday, then Wednesday 13 April at Viewfinders will be a good family photography night with an opportunity to make some Easter props on the night.

Bring your props and help make this another memorable night at Hedon Viewfinders – and rumour has it that we have a very special guest in attendance!?

Easter Eggcelence Night, Wednesday 13 April 2022! Hedon Viewfinders, Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH at 7pm.

Prints Night. Hedon Viewfinders Wed 6 April 2022

Hedon Viewfinders at 7pm on Wed 6 April 2022, Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH.

PRINTS NIGHT

FOLLOWING OUR SUCCESSFUL and popular last few meetings, we thought the time was ripe to see the work resulting from these.

PRINTS NIGHTbring up to five prints as examples of your work. Perhaps those that you are proud of, or maybe those that you feel serve as learning examples.

Bring up to five prints up to A4 and they will be set out for tabletop display. We hope that given the chance, some of you will choose to talk about your photographs and how you ‘got’ the shots, and perhaps answer questions or ask them, and offer tips to others in the room.

For those who find getting prints difficult, then we can view some photographs via the computer and projector screen if you bring your five photos on memory sticks.

Hedon Viewfinders at 7pm on Wed 6 April 2022, Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH.


These were sent in by Keith Maddon following our Flowers Photography meeting. Two of the photos are also in response to our Backlight Week 13 Photo Challenge #viewfinderschallengeweek13.


DRONE PILOT: If any member has a drone and is an experienced and licensed drone pilot, and is interested in a local job, then please get in touch rayduffill@hedonblog.co.uk.


Don’t forget the 52 Week Photography Challenge which is also being covered every week by the Holderness Gazette. Also, our Guess Where? competition closes on Sunday 3 April.

“Flowers are the Stars!” Hedon Viewfinders Club News

Everyone is welcome at Hedon Viewfinders meetings, which will look at Flower Photography on Wednesday 30 March

On Wednesday 30 March, 7pm at the Haven Arms the session is on flower photography – and building on what we learned in recent meetings (please send your images in to publish on the website) the aim will be to “Make the Flower the Star!”.

Members are encouraged to bring their own flowers in, but we’ll have some special ‘candidates’ for stardom available. We’ll approach flower photography in the same way as studio portraits with attention to lighting and backgrounds. We’ll also look at some other techniques for creating different photographic effects.


Club Photo Walk.

At Humber Bridge Country Park on Sunday 3 April (weather permitting). Meet in the car park outside the Tourist Information Office at 11am.

All Welcome. Just turn up. There are always members present willing to help with camera settings and other advice: https://what3words.com/eating.deed.vote.


Photography Challenge – Send in your images to publish on the website.

And do continue to send in your images associated with the 52 Week Photography challenges. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.

Our Week 11 TREES challenge resulted in this shot of a well-known scene at Sunk Island taken by Keith Maddon. And to the same challenge, Malcolm Seville responded with his image. And in response to the Week 12 Challenge ‘New to You’, Ray Duffill said that he had never light painted a boat before… until our last meeting that is!


A reminder about our Guess Where Competition which is open until Sunday 3 April 2022.

Guess Where competition

Check out #BlossomWatch Day organised by the National Trust. At the next meeting, we will discuss ways we can take part.

Hedon Viewfinders Photography Meetings and News update

It’s LIGHT PAINTING next week, making FLOWERS the stars of your photography the week after – and find out about our new WhatsApp group.

OUR NEXT MEETING on Wednesday 23 March 2022 will utilise the last of the early dark nights (clocks go forward 27 March) to do a session on Light Painting. We’ll do indoor (and outdoor sessions if weather permits) work to convince everybody just how easy it is to get spectacular shots by moving lights or moving the camera.

We’ll also have a look at light sculpturing where you can create a scene in the dark using a torch or torches.

7pm start. Wednesday 23 March 2022 at The Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH.

On Wednesday 30 March the session is on flower photography – and following on from our enjoyable product photography night (please send your images in to publish on the website) the aim will be to “Make the Flower the Star!”.

Members are encouraged to bring their own flowers in, but we’ll have some special ‘candidates’ for stardom available. We’ll approach flower photography in the same way as studio portraits with attention to lighting and backgrounds. We’ll also look at some other techniques for creating different photographic effects.

WhatsApp Group.

As those members at the last meeting will know that Ray Duffill is no longer on Facebook. He now faces the same issues as lots of members who are not part of that social network i.e. not being in the loop as far as the latest news from the club is concerned.

We are going to put extra efforts into keeping members informed via this website but we have also set up a WhatsApp group. WhatsApp is a fast, simple, secure messaging platform. This will concentrate on three things – to let members know about meetings, the latest Weekly Photography Challenges and any trips/outings organised between meetings.

If you want the link to join the WhatsApp group, then please e-mail Ray at viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or on rlduffill@gmail.com.

Product Photography meets The Apprentice! At Hedon Viewfinders.

“Product Photography meets The Apprentice!” This is how we have described our meeting on Wednesday 16 March 2022.

We’ll split into teams – and each will be given a task to set up a scene that promotes a product. These products are:

  • Sunglasses/Glasses
  • Perfume/cologne
  • A drink (bottle, glass, can, etc)
  • Meat or Vege Stock (OXO, Bovril, Vegemite, etc)
  • The Flower Shop

We will have the main props available, but please bring your own along with your ideas about how you might create your scene. Think about backgrounds, lighting, creating atmosphere and evoking emotion, and will you include people in your scene, etc, etc? What will convince the final viewers of your images that they ought to get your product?

During the course of the evening, there will be an opportunity to consider different styles, approaches. There will be a fun element of competition between teams!

Wed 16 March, 7pm at The Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH. Find on what3words: https://what3words.com/captive.crispier.pirate
