What's New

Please note that our planned outing to Castlefield in Manchester on Sunday 19th March has been postponed due to the likelihood of poor weather. Barry is to advise if it is to be rescheduled.

Our Photoshop course for members has now started, with the six Wednesday sessions being split over two venues.
WEEK 1 - March 8 - Basic Camera and Computer settings with Oliver Dorée CPAGB, at Rishton Methodist Church
WEEK 2 - March 15 - Monochrome conversion with John Barton ARPS, also at Rishton
WEEK 3 - March 22 - Filters and brushes using Corel Painter with Nigel Airey, at Churchfield House in Gt Harwood
WEEK 4 - provisionally March 29 - TBC
WEEK 5 - April 5 - Selections, taking place at Gt Harwood
WEEK 6 - April 12 - A round-up of things people want to revisit or want to know that haven't been covered elsewhere, at Rishton.
For each session there will be a small charge to cover room rent.

Members please note that from March's monthly competition onwards, 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.

Barry Noon's weekend photographic trips are set to continue in the new year. To be visited are: Bolton Steam Museum on Sunday 22nd January; Salmesbury Hall on Sunday 12th February; and Castlefield, Manchester, on Sunday 19th March. More details to follow by email.

Club members now have a different way of entering images into competitions, using PhotoEntry software. Log-in HERE or in the Members' Area, which also has a user guide.

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 Wayne and he will find the most appropriate member to speak to.

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.
