Photo Club

Diary of Events

The Photo Club, run by Michael, has a dozen regular members, French and English, some beginners, some more advanced, who engage in or want to engage in digital photography.  The club usually meets one Saturday each month from 14:30 to 16:30.  

 

The usual meeting place is at the prefab by the lake in Callac, except for the "photos-of-the-month" sessions when we meet at the Kerbuannec building, room 1.  

 

Each quarter, there are, in rotation :

  • 1 session ” Photo of the Month ” (September , December, March and June)

  • 1 session of ”Theory and Practice

  • 1 session to practise in situ.

 

The themes for the Photo of the Month are always given a few weeks in advance to give everyone time to complete the assignment.  The photos are viewed and commented on, and the members present then choose the Photos of the Month .

For the time being we will have a monthly online competition based on a technical aspect of photography, with notes for guidance provided in advance. This will be based on a specific technique rather than a set subject theme.

 

November's photographic exercise

 

The technical theme for November's photographic exercise was "taking a photo at night"  without using a flash.

When mastered it can create interesting effects and is a useful technique for indoor venues where flash photography is forbidden (church services, museums etc) or those photos of city scapes with long threads of red and white lights.

It also helps familiarise the user with the camera and understand the relationship between ISO (camera sensitivity), aperture (the amount of light coming in), and shutter speed (the amount of time light enters the camera), all of which add up to the  photograph's creation.

Some of our members have used the technique.

December's photographic exercise

 

This month the photo club have put together a quiz for you. Each photo represents a film can you work them out? 

Answers below each photo.
