Hertford and District Camera Club
ONLINE MEETINGS : see Programme & Noticeboard

Hertford and & District Camera Club meets online at 8:00pm on alternate Friday evenings, from September through to May. Our online meetings allow exten­sive access to guest speakers and judges from across the UK and beyond, and enable membership for photo­graphers outside our local area. We plan occasional in-person practical and social events.

Our aim is to help members get more pleasure from their photo­graphy by improv­ing their photo­graphic tech­niques and by fine-tuning their eye for a picture. Our biweekly meetings include both creative and technical talks, together with popular compe­titions to allow us to show our images and receive expert advice.

New members and online visitors are always welcome. Please go to the Join page if you would like to join the club as an Online Member; the annual Online Member fee is just £32.00. To attend an online meeting as a visitor just click its Visitor button on the Syllabus page; visitors attend free but are encouraged to make a small donation. Feel free to contact us in advance if you have any questions.

"You Are Being Watched"

The Club offers mutual photographic help through a varied programme of meetings, enabling us to see the work and techniques of other photo­graphers – inclu­ding visiting speakers (amateur and pro­fessional) and other Club members. Most of these meetings are not formal tutorials, yet the speakers are very well informed on many different aspects of photography, both creative and technical.

For less experienced photographers in particu­lar, help and advice are readily available from the broad experience of the other members. We use a wide range of cameras, lenses and software from most of the major companies to capture and process subject matter ranging from wildlife to portraits, from architecture to street photography.

"Preparing for Takeoff"

Regular print and projected digital image (PDI) competitions – with sections for both advanced workers and for less proficient photo­graphers – help our members to improve their photog­raphy. Experienced external ‘judges’ provide construc­tive criticism of our work. In addition, photo ‘battles’ with other clubs enable us to compare our best photo­graphs with a broader range of styles. We all continue to learn by seeing good (and sometimes not so good!) images.

"Hot Water"

The Club was founded in 1951, and is affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB) through the East Anglian Federation of Photographic Societies (EAF). For more information about the Club, its history and its signifi­cant events please see the about us page.
