Mon 22 Jul 2024 - Summer Syllabus - Chatelerhaut Country Park near Hamilton

7:00pm

This is a large estate with a hunting lodge and long views over to Ben Lomond. There are many paths and trails, around the lodge the paths are fairly flat and asphalt as are the paths around the car park. There are scattered objects of interest within the grounds and extensive woodland. There is a rough hard core, steepish, track down to the River that should afford a good view of the arches of the bridge, although a different view is possible from near the lodge. There is a similar track down to the top of the bridge and a ruined castle (folly) behind this. There are other varied routes...

Mon 5 Aug 2024 - Summer Syllabus - Potential Locations Around Lanark

7:00pm

The following is provided by Elaine Forrest. Possible Locations for members who would still like to attend a Monday night outing .

I am fairly familiar with Lanark, my daughter and family live there and I have long thought its a good location for a variety of different shots in different areas. I am sure many of you are also familiar with it. I think its a fairly big project.

My thoughts are.

1. Street and architecture, which would involve a walk around Lanark itself , through the various closes and vennels, exploring the area for different shots.

2. The Loch,...

Mon 19 Aug 2024 - Summer Syllabus - Royal Observatory, Blackford Hill, Edinburgh

7:00pm

This was recommended by Bob Hosie as having excellent views over Edinburgh. The grounds around it are also a nature reserve. There is a driveable road to the Observatory with Parking, although to get to the summit there is a short steepish walk on an asphalt surface. When checking this out we were unfortunately caught up in torrential rain with no rain gear and it was blowing a hoolie, so we had to turn back off this path. As the festival is still in progress and if people wanted to stay late, this might be an opportunity for firework photos. There will be more details in the Darkroom...

Mon 2 Dec 2024 - ZOOM - David Cantor - Conversations - Ramblings of a so-called Street Photographer’.

7:15pm

treet Portraiture is my passion. This often neglected genre comes with endless opportunities to interact with people from all walks of life, ethnicity and backgrounds. Much of my photography happens in and around the Brick Lane area of the East End of London. It's a place that holds a special place in my affections, several branches of my family have passed this way in the last 150 years.
