Camera Club May

Submitted by Steve Chicken

We last met on 14 May when we reviewed images submitted under the theme “Texture”.
As usual, members had shown a variety of approaches to this subject and as a result we had an interesting collection of photographs. Some of these can be seen on “the cube”.

Turn, drag the cube with the mouse then click on any of the images on any of the cube faces to see the picture in full view or to view the whole album.

This was our first meeting after having bid farewell to founding member and leading light, Pat Littlewood.  It is going to take is a while to get into our new stride, but the meeting was enjoyable nonetheless.

We welcomed Beryl and Roger, two potential new members who came along to see what we do.  After a trawl of ideas about future workshops, we now have a list of topics for sessions to introduce relatively inexperienced photographers to certain basic aspects of photography. These include use of the manual settings on the camera, getting the exposure just right and basic photo editing. As we are now heading into a period of absences, we will probably embark on these sessions in September.

We noted that there are some interesting exhibitions in the offing, notably in the Office de Tourisme in Guéret from now until late June and in the Library in Dun-le-Palestel for a fortnight commencing 1 June.

Our next meeting, at which we will review submissions under the theme “Near and Far”, will be in the Library at 14h00 on Tuesday 11 June.  If you would like to see what we get up to, or would like any advice on photography, feel free to come along.
