Looking further ahead Rob Campling is organising a trip to Chichester allotments. Rob has provided the following information:

Place: St Paul’s/Little Breach Allotments. No post code, but PO19 5UA gets you to the turning off St Paul’s Road that leads to Little Breach. The allotment gate is on the left right after the side road (Woodlands Lane) which leads to two schools. It has City Council notices plastered all over the gate.

Parking: On street parking – usually fairly easy at this time.

Meeting: I’ll be waiting at the gate.

Length of stay: An hour or two.

Wrap Up:  At the Rainbow Inn from 7.30. A  CAMRA pub but no food after c. 7pm

What to see:  It’s a large site with upwards of 60 allotments. Everything from the scrupulously tidy to the abandoned, plus hedgerows, trees and a tame fox. Sheds and greenhouses. A couple of chicken runs as well!  I’ll make sure the visit is publicised by the City Council so everyone will know the the Club are visting.

 

Photowalk Witterings 14th June

A small but enthusiastic band showed up for a delightful evening at the Witterings. Here is a group shot (although Sarah had wandered off)

We hope to get some more walks organised, if you have the idea of a location please let me know.

Photo Walk West Witterings Thursday 14th June 2018

The next summer photo walk will be this Thursday, 14th at 6:30pm at West Witterings.

I suggest we meet up in the car park. The car park closes at 20:30, so people wishing to stay later should find parking outside the car park.

All invited. I am still looking for people to organise walks, so if you feel you can do one please email me (mrjeffowen@gmail.com) and we can put it in the programme,

Summer Photo Walks – Organisers Needed

Jan kicked off the summer photo walk with an entertaining, but challenging photo sprint around Chichester, the theme was to take images from a “Dogs eye view”. This theme was messaged to Jan on the night by a friend in Norway.

We had a good turn out with great images from our Club attendees, who walked off with all the honours.

We are not planning to run a walk next week as many people will be involved with the Exhibition Judging, but are looking for volunteers to organise walks through the summer. If you are interested please email me (mrjeffowen@gmail.com) with your location and date you can do and we can take things from there.

We are hoping to get something organised for Thursday 14th June, so watch this space, like Dave below.

Data Protection Policy

In line with the new GDPR regulations and guidance from the PAGB we have created a new Privacy Policy or Data Protection Policy which we believe is suitable for camera clubs like ourselves.

GDPR gives everyone the following rights about private data held about them by an organisation, even a club like ourselves:

  1. The right to be informed
  2. The right of access
  3. The right to rectification
  4. The right to erasure
  5. The right to restrict processing
  6. The right to data portability
  7. The right to object
  8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

In designing our policy we had to take this into account and look at all the data we hold to run the club, how we process it and how and what we share.

Summer Photo Walks

Following the success of the recent Bluebell Photo Walk,  many members have have expressed interest in doing photo walks during the summer season. The emphasis will be on a social event with cameras, rather than the old summer hike style walks.

Jan has volunteered to run the first, a fun sprint around Chichester.
If you are interested in attending walks please email me (mrjeffowen@gmail.com) and I will keep you informed of future events. Also, if you have any locations in mind, or if you fancy helping organise one please contact me.

 

Multmedia Group Meeting Wednesday 23rd May 7:30pm

The final meeting of the Multimedia Group this year will be looking at Video, meeting in the small hall at Tangmere at 7:30pm on Wednesday 23rd May.

Many of us have the capability to take high quality video on our phones and cameras, but we often do nothing with it. Video is also a great way to enhance AVs with a mixture of clips and stills.

The meeting will introduce some free Video Editing software available for all platforms (Mac, Windows and Linux) and discuss some basic aspects of video shooting and editing.

There will also be a chance to show your work and discuss a project for the summer. All are welcome.
