Camera Phone Competition

For our next members’ evening on 13th March we are having a light-hearted competition for images taken with a phone camera.

You may submit up to six PDIs and/or prints.  Please make sure your preferred images have lower numbers as, depending on the number submitted, we may not use all of them.

You may work on your images in any way you wish – your imagination is your only restriction.

Please submit images in the usual way with a size no larger than 1600 x 1200 and to the internal competition email addresses.  The deadline is midnight on 6th March.

The competition will be judged by our very own Richard Burn.

Manuel Fohler will also be joining us and sharing his knowledge.  He will be giving us a presentation on the pros and cons of camera phone photography.

This is something different for the club and is bound to provide for an enjoyable evening.

It’s time to get out there and start being creative.

Off Camera Flash Studio Workshop Feb 8th

As you will know from the club programme, in February (Tuesday 20th) Cliff is organising a practical studio shoot. This will be a great opportunity to bring your cameras and take portraits, from face to full height shoots. The plan is to build three separate sets in the school hall, each with its own lighting.  There will be one or more models at each set.  You can move between sets, connect your camera to the lights and conduct your own shoot. 

Prior to this evening I am offering to run a preliminary studio workshop for any member interested in gaining some experience of a studio shoot before this event.

This preliminary workshop will be on Thursday 8th February at Cople Village Hall, 7pm to 9.40pm.

The evening is open to any member who wishes to learn or refresh the basics of flash photography using both flashguns (AKA speedlights) and studio lights. 


A Wonderful Opportunity for the BCC..!

The BCC has been offered exhibit space on the 1st floor of the Bromham Mill (Bridge End, Bromham, Bedford MK43 8LP).  We have accepted their offer, and are looking forward to showing our efforts to the local community!  But there will be work involved, so anyone wishing to exhibit will also be required to provide helping hands throughout the process.  No help, no image(s).

Here are the particulars;
