What's New

ACCRINGTON CALENDAR
We have produced an Accrington calendar for 2018 using archive pictures by Garth Dawson, who was a well known photographer in the town and a life member of the camera club who sadly passed away last December. The camera club is a registered charity and money from the sale of the calendars will go to club funds. Accompanied by modern-day images taken by our members, the A3-size quality calendars are available to buy for £7 from the following venues: The card stall in Accrington Market Hall, Clayton Co-op, Rishton Co-op, Haworth Art Gallery, Hyndburn Heritage Centre in Accrington Arndale and the Garth Dawson Studio on Bridge Street, Accrington. Only 170 have been produced, so get yours while you can!

SIZE CHANGE
Members please note that DPI entries to all club competitions need to be 1600x1200 instead of 1400x1050. This is to reflect changes made nationally and by the L&CPU. In all other respects they can be processed and submitted as normal.

COMPETITION LOG-IN
Club members should enter images into competitions using the PhotoEntry software. Log-in HERE or in the Members' Area, which also has a user guide.

MENTORING HELP
Don't forget that as an Accrington Camera Club member it is possible to receive some photographic mentoring from a more knowledgeable or experienced member of the club. So whether you want to know more about your camera settings, how best to convert images to mono, or any other query - get in touch with our president Ian and he will find the most appropriate member to speak to.

LOAN SERVICE
Don't forget that members have access to equipment owned by the club. Laptop and projector - see Mary Braithwaite. Calibration Spyder - see Martin Yates. Slide scanner - see Harry Emmett.
