"Livingston Camera Club - Through The Lens"

This exhibition of members' images can be viewed at the Howden Park Centre, Livingston. It highlights the varied styles of the camera club whose members are frequently inspired by nature, people, urban activity and the abstract. This is a perfect opportunity to view an outstanding collection of high quality images which are superbly printed, mounted and framed.

The exhibition runs from 1 June until 4 November. Entry is free. The exhibition is open Monday to Friday from 9:00 until the Centre closes; and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 until 17:00. http://www.howdenparkcentre.co.uk/article/27316/Livingston-Camera-Club-Through-the-Lens_

 

 

Membership closed for 2018-19 Season

Membership for the current season is closed. Our new season begins in September. Applications from new members will be available in late summer.

Funding Grants

As a community camera club, we are fortunate to get some financial support via a West Lothian Council Community Arts Grant to help in the running of the club.

 

Club Projects

New members, especially those who are just starting out on the road to more serious photography, may be interested to learn about the club's monthly photography project which takes place on the club's website. This is strictly a members' only project, members of the public will not be able to view any images submitted to a project. It's also a "fun" project; it's not a competition and there are no prizes. Its purpose is to encourage members, especially Beginners, to submit images based on a theme which will change from month to month. And it's also meant to be a challenge for more advanced members to come up with something different. It doesn't matter about the quality of the image - although we hope over time that these will improve with experience. It's more about scanning your catalogue of images for something suitable or perhaps creating something specially to meet the theme.

Submitting images is reallysimple. First, login to the Members page and click on My Images in the left hand menu. When the My Images page opens there are full instructions there on how to add an image to the website and how to submit it as an entry in a Club Project. The same process is used to submit images for Competitions and for Members' Galleries.

Why not take a look now at some of the existing projects and view some really great images. Login to the Members page and click on Club Projects.

 

Members' Galleries

Why not share your experiences with the rest of the club and submit new, replacement or additional images for the Members’ Galleries? Members have full control of the images they want to include in their galleries. Just click on Members in the menu bar and, after logging in, choose My Images in the left menu list and follow the instructions. Nothing could be simpler!

Looking Ahead ...

Members Night 3 - PechaKucha

Tonight is PechaKucha night (that's pronounced "petcha-kootcha"). This will be the fourth time we will have run this event.

So, what's PechaKucha? PechaKucha is a simple presentation format where you create a slideshow comprising 20 images with each image being displayed for only 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and the objective is that you have those 20 seconds to describe the image and why you have chosen it.

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps - just about anything, really - in the PechaKucha 20x20 format. Good PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected - unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha Night into “a box of chocolates.”

So, like AV nights, this is a members' event and we need members to contribute to the evening. All you need to do is to produce a file of 20 images and be prepared to talk about these images. They don't need to have a common theme, although it's probably best if they do. You don’t even need to produce a slideshow. Just bring along your 20 images on a portable device on the night or email them to Brian in advance at web@livingstoncameraclub.org.uk and he'll do the rest.

Here’s a link to the official PechaKucha 20x20 website: www.pechakucha.org if you would like more information about PechaKucha.

Hand in Annual Competition - Print and/or Digital

This is the final competition of the season. It will be an open competition (no predetermined subject) comprising both digital and printed images. The results from his competition DO NOT count towards the Annual League Table.

The RULES for submitting digital and print entries are available on the Information page of the website. Print entries should be accompanied by a digital submission of the image entered, submitted via the club website on the My Images page. This copy may be used for collating, selection and projection on judging evenings; and also for presentation on the club website after the competition has been judged. Digital copies may also be handed in to the Competitions Secretary on digital media.

Digital images or prints submitted to a previous club competition MAY be resubmitted for this competition.
