Movie Makers May 2020 Newsletter Published

The usual Movie Makers’ Group Newsletter has a different flair about it. Editor, Ian Simpson, has taken a short retrospective look at how 2020 had promised so much in January 2020 had taken a turn for the worst under the different times of Coronavirus/COVID-19 in just a few weeks. The idea of getting ready to commence of public meetings, Club outings and spending time together were pull from under our feet. Ian’s review of the period is very enlightening how a virus could affect so much.

On the brighter side Club members have taken up the gauntlet, learnt new skills on Social Distancing and Self Isolation and headed to their electronic devices (PC, Laptops, smartphones, tablets/iPads) to communicate with each other.  The take up in this area has been amazing. Thanks to everyone responding in this manner.

The Movie Makers Group has continued with a modified programme, all on-line with the aid of Zoom Conferencing/Meeting. There is several articles of the Group’s last couple of meeting; Map Routes by Tom Hunt, a DaVinci Resolve tutorial with John Devenish and not forgetting several videos and AV’s on “Water with Music”.

Read about these and more in the Movie Makers’ May 2020 Newsletter out now. As the world continues to change around us it very important that members regularly check the Club’s Calendar for possible Programme changes. So, sit back in the arm chair with your coffee/tea and enjoy the Newsletter.

Photography Group April 2020 Newsletter Published

This past month has been very hectic with no public meetings being held at our normal Meeting Place. Instead the Club has held on-line, virtual meetings for all its meetings including Management, Movie Makers and the Photography Groups. Thank you all who attended these meetings. It has been good to “see” each other, yet be so far away, in self isolation.

This month’s Photography Group’s Newsletter had our reporters scattered to cover the events from the Presentation Evening with 4 Club Members, the “Coffee & Chat @10”, the Monthly Competition. It’s been a very different world to report on Club activities with technology playing an increasing role.

Here’s a quick last reminder about several very important activities. The Club’s APS Challenge Cup Pre-Selection entry close this Friday, May 1st. This is a Club Entry Event so please do assist by sending your digital images in. In addition, the FCC Topshot closes on May 8th, and is an individual entry. Finally all the May Meetings will continue to be on-line using Zoom. For changes, please consult the Club’s Calendar and review all activities.

A message from The President

Live on Zoom

Well, we have achieved a first for the Club, a virtual Club meeting with 37 members with the youngest member to the oldest all online. I must thank the Presenters and all members for their willingness to join in this special event. With the help of Tim Porteous, Geoff Gray and John Devenish who worked in the background for the last 3 weeks, I was so proud to be the President and enjoyed the company of all the members whom I know missed the social aspects of the Camera Club meetings. This we will make up with a coffee and Chat hour in the near future. Copies of the presentations are available to members upon request via WeTransfer .
