The Eddie Vision Song Contest – Happy Hour with Hedon Viewfinders

Hedon Viewfinders photographic club has continued to meet online during the coronavirus crisis. The club has a reputation for being a fun, friendly and social place to learn about photography, and that has still been the case during the lockdown.

A weekly club meeting on Wednesdays at 7pm via Zoom invites members to meet, chat and discuss photography challenges. We have recently shared members’ best lockdown photos. These have included shots of Oil and Water (not mixing!) and taking multi-coloured photos. This week members are experimenting with Portrait Photography.

The club also meets every week on a Saturday for a Happy Hour (or two).

During Happy Hour, as well as traditional quizzes, members have held a Mexican Night and a Murder Mystery Night. And this Saturday the club is holding its very own version of Eurovision: The Eddie Vision Song Contest!

Members will each be allocated a country and will choose a song to compete in the club’s own version of Eurovision complete with the famous voting rounds from judges. With a photo element to the competition too, we are sure it will be an enjoyable evening with no-one receiving the ultimate Eurovision put-down of ‘Nil Point’.”

Email us for more information if you want to get involved.

Task 48 – Mark VE Day 75 for posterity!

Record this day in photographs and video for posterity. Future generations will look back at the shots we take today with as much curiosity as we look at photos of VE Day in 1945. We’ll help build and contribute to larger collections and galleries of photographs marking this day.

Task 48 – A Day Off…!

It’s Bank Holiday Friday 8 May 2020 the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe. Perhaps one of the most unusual and unique ‘days off’ in history, overshadowed as it is by our common foe today – coronavirus.

Record this day in photographs and video for posterity. Future generations will look back at the shots we take today with as much curiosity as we look at photos of VE Day in 1945.

Tributes will be paid from our generation to those of the Second World War generation who gave so much service and sacrifice during those turbulent times from 1939 – 1945. And, from the safety of your home, it is hoped that you will join in with marking the occasion.

Share on social media with #VEDay75 as well as the normal #viewfinders #dailyphotos #keepsmiling #stayhome

Email your photos of #VEDay75 to us at viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk and we’ll help build and contribute to larger collections and galleries of photographs marking this day.

‘Red, White & Blue’ – What can you do? Your photo task today!

Task 47 – Red, White & Blue!

Red, White & Blue – what can you do? It’s VE Day, the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe, tomorrow. So what can you do in a photo with the UK’s patriotic colours?

Let the colours Red, White & Blue be your theme or inspiration for today’s photos!
