CCC Final summer news items

1.         Recycling old ink cartridges  (message from Lorna Brown) – Members who use Epson printers might have found it a challenge to find out where/ how to recycle their old ink cartridges.  I’ve just found that you can use this website: and (after some advice from Epson!) you can, confusingly, select ANY printer from the list, not the one specific to your printer as the list isn’t comprehensive and will receive a postage paid label to send the old cartridges of to Epson.

2.         16 September : talk by Gavin Hoey at Alton Camera Club – Gavin is a freelance photographer, writer and trainer of all things photographic.  His work is regularly featured in photographic magazines, websites and videos. Winner of Adode’s 2010 “Next Photoshop Evangelist” competition and guest speaker at “The Photography Show” this year, he demonstrates Photoshop, Lightroom and Elements in the UK, Europe and the US.  Gavin has a real passion for sharing his photography and Photoshop knowledge and Alton CC
will be one of the first to see this year’s lecture: “Snap Happiness”.  Guests to the club may attend for the small charge of £5.  Venue:  Alton Camera Club, Wessex Arts Centre (on the Alton College campus),.Old Odiham Rd, Alton, GU34 2L. 7:00 for a 7:30 start.

Rosemary Wilman, Hon.FRPS writes:  “We are a group of ladies of diverse backgrounds, influences and interests, who share a passion for taking and making images.  This diversity is evident in the variety of photographs on show, and demonstrates the differences of thought and versatility of approach, to the subjects of our choice.  The Group has exhibited together for several years each photographer’s personal work is highlighted in small panels.  We are including a few of our favourite images by Susan Hill FRPS, a founder member, who sadly died in December 2014.  We look forward to welcoming you and please share this information with your friends”.  Please also see attached poster.

5.         Tim Rudman Newsletter : Iceland, An Uneasy Calm’ (progress update) – Glyn Edmunds has asked that this progress update is circulated to club members as a matter of interest.  Tim Rudman writes “The book is currently with the printer EBS in Verona where it has already been printed, but the binding will be delayed as there were two small sections of the book that I wanted re-printed. The second round of proofs for these sections arrived today and have already been returned to EBS. I will attend the final on-press session next week.  If all goes according to plan and on schedule this will delay delivery by only about two weeks. So instead of mid September, shipping of the standard edition should now begin in the first week of October. The Deluxe edition should start shipping approximately two weeks later.  The book website is

A new ‘Process’ section to the site is under construction, giving an insight into the print making processes.  To those who do – enjoy your printing.

Funky Junction Shoot at Bognor

 Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 14.03.10

Saturday 14 March: The Funky Junction photo-shoot was held between 1-3 pm at Alexandra Theatre in Bognor in the Studio Room.  This is a local band and the event gave an opportunity to photograph against a background of smoke and using stage lighting.  Twelve club members joined the shoot organised by Ronnie Hall and all participants enjoyed the session and the band was happy with the images they got.

Print Group – 13th October

The Print Group meets again on Tuesday 13th October in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre at 7.30pm  All are welcome – including non-members.  Bring along your work in progress, new work, old work, images you’re pleased with and those you don’t think are quite right for friendly and constructive group comment. No need to mount pictures or produce full size, but stuck to card just to give some support is useful.  If you’d like to just sit in and watch what happens at these meetings you’ll also be very welcome.
