Updates for The Camera Club 

This month, a new exhibition and our regular groups that closed for summer are back on track. 

Please read on...

Gallery 1885 - John Mawditt

Constrained by just one person’s experiences, the exhibition “Fragments” is an “In-hibition” - unique and random fractions of a second, stolen from the time-space continuum and briefly frozen - each as a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity.

Image Art Exposed Group - Theme: Landscape: 16X9

The next IA Group meeting will be on Wednesday 27 September. The theme for September is a little different: Landscape 16x9.

The vast majority of pictures tend to stick to two formats: 10x8 or 6X4. Why? Maybe because 10X8 inches has always been one of the most popular paper sizes for prints and 6X4 is the format for 35mm film. Let’s try something different. 16X9 - the format for movies.

Does it have to be a landscape? Absolutely not. Cityscape, nightscape, fashion portrait, street, travel, whatever genre you like. It can be a brand-new picture you have shot this month or something from your archive. Any picture at all. It just has to be 16X9.

Now this could be a tricky project. Tricky, but lots of opportunities! Composition (Rule of thirds? Golden ratio? Negative space?), closeup, full-height, portrait?

Whether you are sharing pictures or not, come along to the group on Wednesday 27 September. It’s a great opportunity to meet up with lots of members. See old friends, make new friends. Chat about photography, share information and tips and just generally have a good evening. Oh, and there will always be good photographs to look at.

If you need any more info or have any questions, get in touch with Bill Hart-French, the Group Leader.
