About the Club

Interested in photography? Why not come along to Mid Calder Camera Club on a Wednesday evening?

We are a friendly club with an interesting and varied syllabus. We cater for both film and digital workers, beginners, and experts. We meet every Wednesday from 7:30 pm to 9:45 pm, September to May in The Institute Hall, Market Street, Mid Calder (opposite the Tonino’s and The Black Bull Pub). More information about the club can be found here. You can also find out where we are located here.


Our next night is on October 17th at 7:30pm

Having set the themes for the Scavenger Hunt earlier in the summer, tonight is your chance to show how successful you have been in capturing them all.

Studio Flash
The club has a set of Bowens studio lights and accessories which are available for members use.
Tonight we take you through how to set-up the lights, backdrops and modifiers (and how to put them away!).
Learn how to balance your lighting to get the type of light you are looking for and how different lighting setups can be used for different creative effects.
Bring your camera so you can get involved.


19th September

The first first 50:50 night of the year!

A new approach to members nights with two members giving a talk or demonstartion on a subject of their choosing.
First we heard from Martin Clarke who gave a presentation of the bird photography he has taken with hints and tips on how he captured them.
Next up Gordon Scott gave a shorter presentation on what judges look for when marking images put in to our appraisals. The notes from Gordon’s talk are available if you were not there on the night.


12th September

The first night of the new season!

Good to see familiar faces and some new ones too!
We went through plans for this next year and celebrated success by presenting trophies to the winners of last season’s competitions.
Well done to our winners! You can catch up on the details in the appraisals section of the website.
