Pecha Kucha Evening

A reminder that tomorrow evening (21st October 2021) is our Pecha Kucha Evening. It gives everyone an opportunity to show 10 images and speak about each one for around 20 seconds. You can show any images, whether your own work or the work of another photographer or artist you think would be of interest to other members.

If you are coming to the Fisherrow Centre please bring your 10 images on a data stick. If you are connecting from home by Zoom, please have your 10 images ready on your computer.

See you at 7:30 tomorrow evening.

Human Portrait Competition – Change of Date

I have been informed that we had the wrong date for the Human Portrait competition on the syllabus. Simon Wooton could not make the original date of 28th January 2021. The competition was moved to 14th January 2021 but the syllabus on the web site was not updated. George informs me that the closing date was this Thursday, 10th December, but as this is too short notice for everyone Simon has agreed to receive our images next week instead.

So please start preparing your human portrait images and submit them to George by 17th December 2020.

Apologies for the mistake on the syllabus. It has been corrected.

 

What Happened to Your Geese Photos

Elaine Gilroy  has send us a link to her community choir’s virtual performance of Something Told The Wild Geese. Most of the photographs used came from Musselburgh Camera Club. Thank you to all members who responded to the original request. Click on the link below and enjoy the performance:

P.S. Don’t forget we are meeting half an hour earlier than usual this Thursday evening.

Date for the final set subject competition of 2019/2020

The votes are in, and it looks like Thursday, 25th June is the most popular date by just one vote (10 votes for that date and 9 for the others). So our final set subject competition (Old Faces) will take place by Zoom on Thursday, 25th June 2020 at 19:30.

I will send you all a meeting invitation nearer the time. In the meantime, I hope you are all continuing to stay safe.

 

Last chance to vote for next season’s set subjects

After 27 votes the set subjects for next season the top 4 subjects look like this:

  • Nature and Wildlife: 6 votes
  • Flowers and horticulture: 3 votes
  • Abstract: 3 votes
  • Landscapes: 2 votes

If you emailed me your vote or commented on the previous post I have already counted your vote. If you haven’t voted yet, this is your last chance. We are still experimenting with online polling, and I discovered the voting link didn’t appear in the previous message when viewed from my phone. If that happened to you, try this link instead (https://poll.fm/10550218):

 

The final result will be announced tomorrow (Sunday, 16th May).

Message from Mölnlycke Fotoclub

The club has received the following message from Martin Lunden of Mölnlycke Fotoclub.

19 March 2020 (Swedish Inter-club Competition)

Thank you for all the interesting and encouraging comments on the images. We have just looked at them all. Thank you for adding the comments to a PowerPoint presentation as it will make it a lot easier to present it to club members. We don’t know, however, when we will meet next time because of covid-19. If this will take a long time we can share this with the members. It is obvious you have spent quite a lot of time discussing images, so thanks again.

I hope you are all well and that we can stay in touch and be able to visit you in Scotland when this is over.

All the best,
Helen and Martin

MUSSELBURGH CAMERA CLUB MEETINGS CANCELLED

Dear member,

It is with great regret I have to inform you that Musselburgh Camera Club meetings have been cancelled for the rest of the season. I have been in touch with tomorrow evening’s speaker, Derek Clark, and he fully understands. We hope to rebook him next season so we don’t miss learning about documentary and street photography.

The final set subject competition and the club AGM will be postponed until the summer. I will let you know the dates.

In the meantime, I hope you all stay safe and well and continue to enjoy photography. Even if our meetings have stopped, the club carries on. We can stay in touch.

All the best,

Steven
