A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
We're starting a camera club at The Step on the last Thursday of every month, starting from Thursday 27th September. It will run from 7.30pm.
It will be free, informal and lots of fun, and it's for absolutely everyone!
The Step are kindly letting us use their bar area for free, so please take advantage of their delicious food and drinks menu while we are there :)
There will be a little bit of theory at each session, followed by lots of doing. It's great if you have a camera with manual settings - we will be ejecting anyone caught using the auto button after week 3! - but not essential as I will be bringing along a few SLR's for people to have a play with (very carefully!)
We want to gauge interest and also to go through ideas about what people would like to learn, so please get involved in this forum and let me know your ideas, and we will arrange a time to meet up in the next few weeks to get some ideas in place before we start on 27th September.
I have just set up a facebook page, so please "like it" - http://www.facebook.com/clickcameraclub and we can carry on discussions on there as we get going.
If you would like to have a chat with me, my number is 07947 467 291.
This sounds like a great initiative. I'm a keen rank amateur snapper, I'll aim to be there on the 27th.
Fantastic. If you are on facenook, pop over to the page and "like it" to keep up with everything that is going on in the next few weeks :)
Ooooh this sounds great but I don't have a SLR can you come anyway and get ideas about composition etc.?
Hi Kay, yes absolutely come along :) We will be starting with a lot of composition and framing and looking at how to very simply take better photos. And I'll have a couple of SLR's with me with various lenses, so you will get an idea of the different things you can do with them in case you ever decide to take the plunge!
I'd like to attend, but as I don't have a SLR, would it be ok to bring a compact, or it is just for SLRs?
Hi Lucia, as I have just posted to Kay, definitely come along. I will have my SLR's with me so you can have a play with them, but we will be starting with composition so you can use any camera you have. See you there :)
Unfortunately I'm not able to make the 27 September due to other commitments but am really interested in joining the camera club. Hopefully see you for the next meeting in October.
Yeah, I'll keep posting on the facebook page once we're up and running, so keep checking on there for any info about classes :)
Brilliant Richard as a keen amateur photographer this is penciled in for the 27th
Great, see you there!
Great idea. Can't make the 27th Sep but would like to meet up with yourself and others to discuss ideas before then. Will definitely be coming along to future sessions.
