Printing and Mounting – A How To @ Brookhouse
Jun 27 @ 19:30 – 21:30

The Wakefield Camera Club Print Exhibition has been missing from the clubs programme for a couple of years due to covid! With the restrictions being lifted, this year will see the return of the exhibition back at the Ridings Shopping centre, so we need to get some prints made and mounted up to look their best but how do members do that! especially when printing has not been as popular in recent years

Well, this evening will touch on the process of using a Professional Photo Lab for your prints, with the inclusion of print profiles to get the best out of your images.

We will then look at the mounting process and how different colours / orientation / location of the aperture can have a different look to your finished image.

For those who print at home thinking this may not be for you, it would be useful to hear the benefits of doing your own prints / mounting too, particular cost / time benefits.

a really useful evening for those looking to get started in printing / mounting!

See you there!

4 Clubs Competition @ TBC
Jun 30 @ 19:30 – 21:30

The 4 Clubs competition is an interclub battle between Wakefield CC, Pontefract CC, Castleford CC and Normanton CC’s with the hosting club rotating each year. and due to Covid has had to take a back seat for the the last few years.

Traditionally a Print Competition, it will for this year be PDI due to timescales in obtaining prints from the clubs, however it still be a fantastic evening to see some great images on show.

The Meeting is on a Thursday so please look out for further details closer to the time.

Practical Evening – Table Top Photography @ Brookhouse
Jul 4 @ 19:30 – 21:30

On the 4th July, Wakefield Camera Club will be having a table top evening for members to check out various different set ups to try their hand at. We have been fortunate enough to host some fantastic speakers in recent years (Donna Crous, Justin Garner) offering an insight to these simple yet very creative techniques that members can try at home, so this evening we can look to replicate this.

This will be a Practical Evening so do bring your camera / tripod and also a set up if you want to try something a bit different to what’s on offer!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Inter Club Battle with Port Elizabeth CC (South Africa) Round 1 @ Zoom Meeting
Jul 6 @ 18:00 – 20:00

As you may know, our current President Peter Wells has entered into many external competitions and Salons around the world and recently got in touch with Port Elizabeth CC to see how their clubs operate, particularly as we come back following Covid, and it was suggested we may share some Zoom meetings and vice versa, along with putting together a couple of interclub battles.

Round 1 of the Battles will be held via Zoom on the 27th June held at the slightly earlier time of 6:30pm (UK time). Despite Peter’s plea for nature to be disallowed sure to fall on deaf ears ;-), I’m sure we will be treated to some fantastic images from the Members from Port Elizabeth CC.

We look forward to welcoming them, See you there!

 

Note the Timing for the event which is 7pm in Port Elizabeth and 6pm UK Time!

Triptych Competition @ Brookhouse / Hybrid
Jul 11 @ 19:30 – 21:30

The 11th July sees Wakefield Camera Club host the Annual Triptych Competition. For both Prints and DPI, this is one of the most challenging competitions in the club calendar! it often produces very creative images from members, trying to get a story across or get 3 images to work as a complete image is a lot harder than it sounds.

It promises to be a great evening of photography from the members.

Looking forward to seeing what you enter!

 

The 11th July also sees Wakefield Camera Club break up for a short Summer Break! do look out for newsletters and emails for Ad Hoc meetings that may arise, otherwise have a great summer Holiday and we will see you when we return on the 5th September – remember to bring some images along for what you got up to in the summer break!
