Biggar Camera Club
Welcome to our web site and thanks for dropping by.
The club are a group of people connected by an aspiration to improve our skills in the craft of photography. We marvel at the sophistication and quality of modern camera equipment and seek to learn how to make full use of what’s available to produce better photographs.
We meet every fortnight from autumn to spring (check out our syllabus page). We have invited speakers to share their enthusiasm for photography and to give us insights on taking better photographs; we set ourselves challenges to explore some particular aspect of photography and share our experiences; we engage in competitions to appreciate the work of other members and get some feedback on our own efforts. We even have some fun through light-hearted competitions with other clubs.
Our range of expertise goes from beginner to highly competent (nobody would admit to being an expert). It is always good to see new faces at our meetings – check out our contact page or come along to our next meeting, these are all held at Biggar Youth Project (see map) starting at 7.30pm. If you are interested in improving your photography skills, it would be good to see you.
For our October 27th meeting we plan to have an "Autumn Colours" challenge. For those that have not participated in these before, you have from now until the competition to capture 5 images that you think meet the title, bring them along on the night in digital form and we will do a review of all including some constructive critique in the hope we can all learn for future photos. Simple editing is allowed such as slight adjustment of lighting and cropping but try to keep to a minimum, if your images are very large please reduce down to 1500 pixels on the long edge and bring them in jpg format. Try and think what makes a good photo, it might be a stunning riverside scene or a close up of a very colourful leaf capturing lots of detail, some colourful fungii, there is some much to choose from and so let's see what we can capture.
