Welcome to Bishopthorpe Camera Club
There has never been a more exciting time to take photographs. In the digital era more people than ever enjoy taking and sharing their pictures.
Whether you use a mobile phone, digital or film camera for your photography, we provide a friendly, supportive environment where you will find inspiration as well as good company. We welcome photographers of all ages and experience, from beginners to experienced amateurs and even a few professionals. Visitors and potential new members may attend any of our Activities and can be sure of a warm reception.
PLEASE NOTE: In view of the current situation, we are holding a ‘Summer Season’ with regular virtual meetings on Zoom, and running Challenges and other activities to keep us in touch and enjoying our photography together. Check out individual events and details of all our activities under What’s On. Club members are free to attend and will receive email notification of upcoming events. Non-members may attend up to 2 meetings for a fee of £3 for each meeting or alternatively may wish to take up ‘Summer Season Membership’ (see below).
If you are interested in attending any of the Zoom meetings, please contact email@example.com.
SUMMER SEASON MEMBERSHIP: We are offering a ‘Summer 2020’ subscription for any non-members wishing to join us for our summer season of on-line meetings and activities. The fees will be as follows: £15 (single); £25 (couple); student (£7.50), valid until 1 September 2020. If you would like to join, please complete a ‘Summer 2020 Membership Form‘ or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
ZOOM: If you are new to Zoom, you may find this helpsheet useful. Those already familiar with Zoom are reminded that they will need to update their Zoom software before the next meeting as it is unlikely to work after 30 May.
Tuesday 14 July 2020, Summer Season Zoom Meeting
Our next Summer Season Zoom meeting will take place on Tuesday 14 July, featuring part two of Roger Poyser’s Yorkshire Quiz and an AV presentation of the images from Challenge #6: Creative use of ICM.
Challenge #7: Positive use of negative space
This Challenge invites you to create images that feature ‘negative space’ as a key component of the picture. Negative space is the area surrounding the main subject in a photograph that is left unoccupied and it provides a powerful compositional tool that helps define the ‘positive space’ or main focus of the image. When used together creatively, negative and positive space can work to elevate the impact of a photograph.
Please submit up to five images, shot during the Challenge period rather than from your archives, no later than Sunday 19 July to email@example.com and they will subsequently be displayed in a Gallery on this website. Please follow the instructions for Submitting Images at https://bishopthorpecc.co.uk/submitting-images/.
If you’re not a Club member, you are more than welcome to join in this challenge so please feel free to send us up to five images and we’ll post our favourites in the Gallery.
