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 2 - AV Night

This will be a members' Audio Visual (AV) evening where members will get the chance to show off some of their images in a slideshow format set to music.

This is usually a great evening with a splendid variety of images and accompanying sound tracks on view. But the success of the evening depends on members so please consider creating an AV for the evening. Bring it along on the night on a memory stick or CD/DVD; or you can email it (or a link to a cloud copy of it) to Brian in advance at web@livingstoncameraclub.org.uk.

Please try to limit the length of your AV to around 5 or 6 minutes; any longer and it can become, dare I say, boring? But don't feel you're restricted to just one slideshow as much will depend on numbers. If time permits, we can always show more than one slideshow per person.

There are a variety of software packages which can produce a slideshow including Lightroom, PowerPoint and ProShow Gold; but you only have to enter “slideshow maker” into Google to find a whole lot of free downloadable ones.
