Do you enjoy taking photographs? Do you want to improve your photography? Do you want to meet other local photographers? Do you
want to have fun with your camera? If the answer to any of these is yes then South Woodham Ferrers has just the club for you.
South Woodham Ferrers Camera Club is a very friendly group of local amateur photographers who enjoy getting together to learn
more about the subject and, if we want to, have our efforts judged in one of our regular appraisal evenings. The main ethos of the club is having fun and enjoying ourselves so why not come
along on a Wednesday evening when you will receive a very warm welcome and make a lot of new, like minded friends. The many benefits of joining a club like ours include learning from other
members and also having people we can talk through photographic problems with and get inspiration from.
We meet at 8pm every Wednesday evening from September until the end of May in the small hall at the back of the bar in the
Village Hall in Hullbridge Road. Access is from the car park at the corner of the building opposite the “Blue Cage”.
We look forward to the pleasure of your company at one of our meetings – you won’t regret it; we’ll even give you two free
evenings with tea and biscuits so what have you got to lose
25th Sept 2019 "The Real India" This presentation from one of our regular club members
promises to show us the "real India" not seen on the regular tourist trails.
Important! Please arrive at the hall by 7.45pm as we will be starting promptly at 8pm.
2nd Oct 2019 "The Expressive Landscape" This evening we welcome Colin Westgate, a master in
fine art landscape photography. Colin asks "Why are so many of our landscape pictures so disappointing and fail to stir the emotions?" Often it
is because they lack atmosphere & light, plus the appropriate post processing techniques needed to correct and enhance the original digital capture. This talk will include images from
Colin's early days in the darkroom and the amazing journey from there to digital production where the techniques available in software such as Photoshop make it possible to produce "expressive"
fine art images of the highest quality.
