Just a reminder that our new season kicks off tonight.  Remember to allow extra time to park as the roadworks are causing havoc with traffic and parking locally!

Summer Season 2014

Every Friday night is outing night! (Subject to there NOT being horizontal rain!).  Turn up at the club ready for a 7.30pm start WITH your camera and we will decide on the night where to go.  First outing this Friday.

Looking for more formal instruction?  Then Matt's 'Photography - back to Basics' night on 23 May is for you.  7.30pm in the clubhouse for some instruction followed by a practical photography session where you put into practice what you've learned.  This session is designed to get you off the auto setting!

Prospective members are also welcome!

Prospective members, feel free to call in - drop us an e mail first if you can and we'll make sure there is someone there to welcome you.

This one is 'Fishmonger' and the judge commented that it really fitted the competition title of 'People at Work or Play' and was a worthy print winner.

The digital section was 'Nature' and this image is entitled 'Juvenile Blue Tit'.

Well done Bill and congratulations to everyone who placed.  The standards were really high.

Slides Lamp

Here is an idea for all those old slides we have lying around.

I saw this for sale for £144.99 so it would be cheap to make ourselves...but could you do this to your old memories?
