A New Camera Club?
by Brian - 15:41 on 10 September 2006I've just been asked by a fellow villager if I would be interested in being part of a village photographic society or club. Well, as it happens, yes I would, very much so!
The only problem is it won't be a very active society (we'll settle for the word society for the moment) with just the two of us. So this is an appeal to see how many other people would be interested. It would be open to anyone to join. In other words, whether you're in Caston or elsewhere, as long as you can get to our local village hall then we would like to hear from you.
Right now there are no fixed aims as far as the society is concerned but initial ideas are that it would be for anyone regardless of expertise. Beginners who want to learn more and experts who are willing to share their expertise. All will be very welcome. Members will hopefully be female as well as male of any age but with a main objective of wanting to learn more about how to take good photos. We would be able to set up our own web site where the best of our photos could be displayed for all to see and comment on if that was thought to be a good idea. We would welcome those interested in all forms of photography including digital or 35mm or medium format and video.
The society would hold regular meetings but that could be once a month or once every two months depending on society activity. In the winter we could have experts come along to help us improve our photographic abilities and in the summer months we could arrange outings (perhaps family outings) to well known attractive photographic venues where there might be a photographic theme suggested. Photos taken could then be competitively judged at a later date. We could liaise with other clubs that are not too distant from us for competitions etc.
So, if you're interested or think you might be interested or have other ideas that we could incorporate then do please get in touch. Either fill out the form below with a few words or complete the feedback form. I'll presume you are happy for me to publish your words unless you say otherwise. Either way let me have your email address (not for publication) but in order for me to get back to you.
We are both very interested in all types of photography and whilst nowadays, like most photographers, we are heavily committed to digital imaging and manipulation, we do have and use medium format as well as 35mm occasionally.
