Re: October Meeting

I will definitely be coming. Hope to be there for 7:30 but I do have Ian's number in case I'm late so I can track people down.
See you Wednesday

Sorry to say I won't be making it. Too far for me to travel after work. Look forward to seeing some great shots though.

Re: Heybridge Basin and canal boats

I'll still get there for 9 as car parking is limited. There is a free car park (I assume that's where we are meeting) but this time of year it fills very quickly.

Re: D-DAY 75 Dakota flight

This is what they have posted for flight route. They will be in formation between the red lines, therefore I think you will be perfectly placed Bruce

D-DAY 75 Dakota flight

Hi everyone. I have been able to get Wednesday afternoon off and I'm planning to head to Colchester with the camera. Just wondering if anyone else is about and would like to meet up. I believe they're expected over Colchester approximately 2:15

April meeting

I thought that as the theme 'shots that make you smile' was my idea I should give an idea of what I'm hoping to see. Hopefully we will see what makes people tick. The pictures don't necessarily need to be the best quality, my thoughts are they need to be special to you. We all have shots that we've ...

Volunteers needed again

Once again I will be spending a day shooting at my clubs agility show on Saturday 18th May. Last year Ian, Phil and Joe came along to shoot as well and between us we got some fantastic action shots that allowed me to put together a great calendar that raised about Β£280 for the Essex & Herts Air Ambu...

Re: Next Year's Programme

A couple of more ideas Photoshoot. Sudbury Practical session. Light painting revisited (really enjoyed the session with guitars) Also how about a year long project, seasons in 4 photograph's. During 12 months capture and choose your best shots, 1 for each season. Then show all 4 shots together.

Re: Next Year's Programme

Photo shoots-
Marks hall sculptures 20th July - 1st September

Agree with Ian on canal or waterway somewhere

Mersea island ?? (Various things beaches, harbour, mudflats)

Themes-
Vehicles (gives opportunity of action shots, close up shots etc)

Technical session-
Depth of field / selective focus

Re: Slice Watch

I am unsure when I may get in to replace a picture Phil, I believe Ian may try in a week or so but probably best to place a notice as you've suggested.
Happy to have actually sold one 😁

A broken man...but still smiling

For those who are wondering how I got on at my Man versus Mountain event....well, sit comfortably and I shall begin. Friday night I probably got about 2.5hrs sleep, not uncomfortable in the cottage we'd rented but unable to settle was all. I still felt good Saturday morning and ready for the event. ...

Heavy Horses and country show

This might be of interest to some. There will also be a display of heelwork to music and tricks from a fantastic local dog training group (I may be a little biased). I'm in Wales but if anyone goes enjoy.

Re: June Meeting

I agree Trevor. For myself, having the time and inclination to set up for a macro shoot and find a great variety of objects to shoot just doesn't happen. I really enjoyed the evening, thanks to everyone for some interesting objects.
