Hedon Viewfinders photographic group continues to provide interesting and enjoyable opportunities for people to practice and learn about photography.
On Wednesday, 10 October 2018 the club is taking its annual trip to the Hull Fair in efforts to capture in photographs the lights, atmosphere and excitement of that event. Additionally, some club members will be taking part in a special ‘end of fair’ photo shoot which records the dismantling of the fair – a very different experience from that normally enjoyed by visitors to the fair.
The week after on Wednesday 17 October, the club holds its meeting inside the 800-year-old St Augustine’s Church with opportunities to photograph that historic building and also to capture the mysterious ‘face in the wall’ that some people can see and others can’t. Wednesday October 31 is the club’s alternative Halloween night, a photo shoot using special ‘dry ice’ and smoke effects.
Club volunteers have recently helped out in photographing a movies-themed calendar in the Magdalen Park nursing home involving residents and staff. The calendar will be sold to raise much-needed funds towards resident activities such as trips and outings.
Hedon Viewfinders and the Holderness Lions are also working with Hedon Town Council to bring opportunities for children to be photographed with Father Christmas at Hedon’s Christmas Lights on Friday November 30, when Hedon Town Hall will be turned into ‘Santa’s Grotto’.
A club spokesperson said: “In two years Hedon Viewfinders has grown into a group that not only provides opportunities to learn photography in a free, friendly and fun environment, but has also become very much part of the local community.”
The club meets fortnightly at the Haven Arms on Wednesdays and more information can be found at the website or via Ray Duffill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: This month the Hull International Photography Festival is taking place until October 28 2018.
