Monday Camera Club
Every Monday 9:00am until 12:30pm
The Monday Camera Club is a friendly group of mixed photographic ability.
We are a small group that meets at Brownhills Community Centre at 9am prompt each Monday morning ready to leave at 9.15 am for wherever we have decided to go.
The weekly cost is £4 and this covers room hire at the centre whenever we stay indoors. We share cars, if possible, and petrol costs when we go out.
We have a loose plan of our activities each week, depending on the weather especially during the winter months. We aim to go out locally up to around 15 miles from the centre to a destination that is chosen the week before, returning in time for a bacon and egg sandwich, prepared and cooked by the centre cafe, at 12:30 hrs.
We also travel further afield once a month usually for a full day. We are always looking for ideas for new destinations locally and welcome new venues or trying a different theme for each visit out.
We also encourage our members to send in two photos after the weekly trip on an email to the rest of the group. We have a challenge too, where we decide on a topic and take photos of that challenge. We submit a maximum of five photos of that challenge and we have a bit of fun deciding whose photo best reflects that subject. The photos are put on a memory stick and brought to the next indoor meeting.
Once a month we plan to stay indoors in order to review the' Challenge' and help each other with any problems with Photoshop editing, (unless the weather is too good to stay in!) Please always bring your camera, just in case we do go out. It is advised that when we go out, you have adequate warm clothing and sturdy footwear as we do go to some muddy, damp places sometimes!
We have successfully made good use of Zoom during the Covid crisis and this has enabled the group to continue. We purchased the Zoom licence for a year out of our funds and will continue to use it for the foreseable future on Monday evenings at 8pm as well as our outdoors trips on Monday mornings. A link to the weekly Zoom meeting is sent out to group members via email each week. Zoom has enabled all members to stay in touch with the group throughout the pandemic and continue to take an active part even when unable to make the Monday mornig meetings.
We welcome new members to the group. If you would like to join us or for more infomation please email Ann at: -
We look forward to hearing from you.
