Funding Grants

As a community camera club, we are fortunate to get some financial support via a West Lothian Council Community Arts Grant to help in the running of the club.

 

Introducing our 2016/17 season

Our President, Susan Roberts, welcomed the large number gathered together at Crofthead Farm on the first day of our new season for a "meet and greet" event. She was encouraged to see so many 'kent' faces as well as 17 new members. On display at the event was a selection of members' photos some of which had been included in our annual exhibition which had taken place at the Almondvale Shopping Centre the previous weekend. Clearly, this had been successful enough to encourage so many new members to join the club. Over refreshments existing members introduced themselves to new members with a view to encouraging beginners to photography to take part in club events. Susan also outlined the first few events on this season's Syllabus which she hoped members would find interesting and worthwhile attending. FInally, she introduced her Committee so that new members could put a faces to names.

Club Projects

New members, especially those who are just starting out on the road to more serious photography, may be interested to learn about the club's monthly photography project which takes place on the club's website. This is strictly a members' only project, members of the public will not be able to view any images submitted to a project. It's also a "fun" project; it's not a competition and there are no prizes. Its purpose is to encourage members, especially Beginners, to submit images based on a theme which will change from month to month. And it's also meant to be a challenge for more advanced members to come up with something different. It doesn't matter about the quality of the image - although we hope over time that these will improve with experience. It's more about scanning your catalogue of images for something suitable or perhaps creating something specially to meet the theme.

Submitting images is dead simple. First, login to the Members page and click on My Images in the left hand menu. When the My Images page opens there are full instructions there on how to add an image to the website and how to submit it as an entry in a Club Project. The same process is used to submit images for Competitions and for Members' Galleries.

Why not take a look now at some of the existing projects and view some really great images. Login to the Members page and click on Club Projects.

Members' Galleries

Why not share your experiences with the rest of the club and submit new, replacement or additional images for the Members’ Galleries? Members now have full control of the images they want to include in their galleries. Just click on Members in the menu bar and, after logging in, choose My Images in the left menu list and follow the instructions. It’s dead easy!!

Looking Ahead ...

Interclub Competition - Livingston CC v Mid Calder CC (Host - Livingston)

Mon, 30/01/2017

Studio Night 2

Monday is our second studio night of the season. We usually have two models. We'll try to persuade one of our studio photographers to set up the lights etc, one in the Tack Room (that's the room on the right opposite the Caretaker's room) and one in the main hall. We'll try to organise a fair queuing system so all participants can take their shots. The length of time available with each model will depend on the number of members on the night. Please feel free to bring along any props and accessories, including any items that could be used for still life subjects for anyone who doesn't wish to take portraits.

And don't forget to bring your camera(s)!!

Hand in Internal Competition 3 - Digital

This is the hand-in date for the secondinternal competition of the season. It's a digital image only competition. Images should be submitted to the club's website by midnight on the 30th but can be submitted at any time up to 8 weeks before that. To submit images for the competition login to the Members page on the website and click on "My Images" in the left hand menu. Follow the instructions on the "My Images" page to submit an image for the competition. Full details of the rules for submitting images for internal competitions can be found on the Information page of the website.
