The latest news from the North Luffenham Camera Club

Field trip to photograph Exton village

The next Camera Club meeting will be on Tuesday 7th May 2013 at 6pm.

This evening will be in Exton, meeting at the Fox and Hounds.

We will spend an hour or two taking photos around the village and area and meet up again for a meal about 7.30 for 8pm. This outing depends on the state of our weather!

Following on from this, we will have our usual meeting on the Tuesday 21st May at 8pm in the Community Centre.

The themes for the meeting on the 21st, together with Exton photos, are Flora and Fauna and/or Signs of the Zodiac.

Our Ash Trees

Ash TreeNLCC talk by Rupert Conant on Tuesday 19th March.

There was a really good turnout on such a chilly evening. The speaker’s travels have covered Northern Iraq, Eastern Europe and India. His emphasis was on the lives of the people,their homes, work and the influence of modern times on this.

He is very keen that all the changes are recorded and, on the technical side, he indicated that we should “feel free to break the rules” when taking photos.

As a follow on from recording changes, he has suggested that the group’s photos are a good way to record the changes taking place in our local landscape – e.g. the state, fate and possible demise of our Ash trees.

So if anyone would like to contact the Camera Club with any local photos of these, so we can add them to our webpage and build up a picture of before and after.

Camera Club Meeting Notes from 15th Jan 2013

The group met on Tuesday evening and were treated to a slideshow by fellow member Sue Churchill of her splendid, exhilarating holiday photos of White Water Rafting in the Grand Canyon. It was good to see so much sun on such a chilly night!

  • The theme for 19th March meeting is “Signs of Spring” – members usually bring a couple of mounted 7″ x 5″ prints on the theme, which are put out for all to look at and discuss.
  • There will be an extra get- together before we hand in photos for the next calendar, so we can make sure that sizes are correct for the printer. Date and venue t.b.a.
  • Categories for the photography classes in the Garden Club show in September should be decided soon and will be posted when known so we can crack on with these.
  • Sue has kindly offered to help those of us who are interested, with putting our photos into a show with text and music. Do let me know if you would like to do this.
  • Ideas for the future to think about – would we like to hold an exhibition?
  • Challenge yourself monthly – read your camera manual and learn about a function you’ve not explored; look at other people’s work in competitions for inspiration like Wildlife Photographer of the Year

So, out now to catch the sun on those frosty trees – if you have not seen this yet, do try out the free website for tips on lots of subjects – DPS.
