Meetings

Meetings are held on the first, third and fourth Tuesday evenings each month where we have talks by invited speakers, hold a variety of competitions at all levels and take our cameras along for studio work with models or table-top still-life sessions.

Although some of our members have expensive SLR cameras,  others have simple compact cameras and still take winning pictures. A selection of members’ pictures awarded high scores in recent competitions is shown above. For more images click on “Gallery” in the bar at the top of this page.

The fourth Tuesday evening of each month is usually dedicated to digital photography, where we use a computer and digital projector to teach ourselves techniques such as the use of Adobe Photoshop and the production of digital slide shows. There is a library of digital tutorial material for the use of members.

Our 2017 exhibition of members’ work was held on Saturday 21 October in St Matthew’s Church Hall. See “News snippets” for images of our previous exhibitions. For a short video of our 2009 exhibition, see this YouTube video.  On another occaision a club outing to Bedfont Lakes inspired one of our members to produce a digital slide show, also available on YouTube.

Anyone with an interest in photography, whether they are experienced and serious or just learning to master a digital camera for the first time, will find interesting meetings, advice and friendship at the Ashford Camera Club. Come along, free of charge, to sample a couple of meetings before joining! You don’t even have to own a camera to enjoy other people’s pictures.
