Mid Calder Camera Club 
Summer 2022

 

The camera club's season has come to an end following our AGM in May.

I'd like to thank our members for supporting their camera club in our 2nd covid season. 

Our executive committee was confirmed and I am honoured that you want me to be chair for another year.

Season 21-22

An unpredictable season indeed but the quality of photography at Mid Calder wasn't hampered.

I know many will be pleased to see the back of Zoom but I have to say it did allow us to be much more expansive in presentations and finding appraisal judges from all over the UK. I'll certainly be glad to see the back of why we were using Zoom!

A big thank you to all of you who supported Mid Calder over the season in whatever way you could. The quality of photography just keeps getting better and it's been a pleasure to see your images. 

Our last two seasons have been difficult with the adaptations that we've all had to make due to covid. It certainly impacted my opportunity for new vistas, which I grabbed when I had the chance. I'm very much looking forward to next season and to get back the social aspect of the club. It's good to get out and be with others who love photography. I'm really not going to miss presenting the Zoom meetings!

Congratulations to our Group winners in PDI and Print for 21-22

Well done Richard, Phil, Dougie and me who all benefited from the appraisers who looked at our Prints or PDIs :)

Special thanks from me to the club's executive committee who it has to be said, had to adapt to changing circumstances!

They put in the time to keep our camera club going and accountable to its members.

We will be planning to start our new season in September 2022 (I'll update this piece when dates are confirmed)

Back at the Institute Hall with real people :)

Over the summer we have an informal arrangement to go out and take photos on a Wednesday evening. You may have other plans but then again, the light may be just too tempting :)

I will email details to members when I know them or check the MCCC FB page.

If you are interested in joining the club next season the Wednesday evening outing may be a nice way to meet folk from the camera club and take photos. Send Malcolm an email (detailed below) and I'll add you to our mailing list so you can join us on an evening or just know when we are starting up again. 

So fingers crossed for the weather you're after and the light being just right over this summer of photographic opportunity.
