A friendly club for photographers of all standards

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

6th Feb 2019  "Creating Impact & Mood"  This evening we welcome back Steve Hedges with his presentation on creating impact and mood in your photos -  "This talk focuses on how to create an image that really has the ‘wow’ factor. An image with impact and mood. I will show a series of before-and-after pictures with the after picture being a big improvement over the before picture. I find this really emphasises the importance of thinking about what you want to achieve before you hit the shutter release. I will then move on to talk about the thought process behind creating a great picture and the various techniques to help achieve that aim."

Also members, please bring in your memory sticks with your images for next week's (13th Feb) Projected image appraisal and also include the unedited versions for the projected image apprasial review night (20th Feb) . Further details to follow.
