Club Meeting 16 November 2021

Practical Evening, bring your cameras!

On Tuesday 16th November we will be holding a Practical Evening, based around light-painting: illuminating objects with hand-held lights such as torches.

We will have several tables with objects to photograph and, weather permitting, a setup outdoors.

Please could you bring your cameras, a torch and, if at all possible, a tripod?

If anyone could also bring suitable items for table-top “props”, that would also be much appreciated.

Club Meetings

With the (partial?) return to normality club meetings have returned to Tuesday Evenings at St. Mary’s Hall. It’s great to see lots of members face-to-face for the first time in 18 months or so.

We do ask that you observe Covind 19 procedures to limit the spread of the Corona virus, especially as we have several member who are in the more vulnerable end of society.

  • Do not attend if you show any of the Covid-19 symptoms
  • Please take a lateral flow test earlier on the day before coming.
  • (These are available free from most chemists or medical practices.)
  • Use hand sanitiser on entry.
  • Wear a mask unless seated.
  • Keep seating separated (unless you are in a ‘bubble’).
  • Avoid crowding.

In the hall the seating will be arranged with at least one seat of space all round and the upper windows will be left open to increase ventilation. This may make it a bit chilly over the winter period, so dress with this in mind!

To avoid queues we are currently NOT supplying teas and coffees at the interval. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments.

Please note that some events which will be held in the hall may have the presenter appearing via Zoom.  In some cases it may be that the presenter, or someone in their close circle, is vulnerable. For others it may be that the presenter is located a long distance away.

On-line events & Covid-19

BRCC organised a series of online photographic and social activities whilst the Covid-19 restrictions were in place.

The club’s programme was re-arranged to be presented on-line via Zoom until we can all gather together again at St Mary’s hall. Registration is not required in advance, please see your latest edition of Snapshots in your email in box.

We took advantage of the removal of distance limits and added some visiting speakers from afar. We hope to continue the occasional use of Zoom into the future.

Please see the WORKSHOPS and CLUB MEETINGs categories for all latest information. These events were increased in frequency during lockdown and were very well attended.

To book in for any workshop go to the Members’ area and look at the Workshops section, regardless of the event type, and you will find a link to the event’s booking.

All these events are free for members, unless specifically notified.

Where a login is required, e.g. for a Zoom event, then these are sent to all registered participants about 24 hours before the event by email.
