St. Mary’s Bay Camera Club sent in this amazing selection of photographs, taken recently by members. Among the shots are many of local places. Photography has been a well recognised pastime since Louis Daguerre invented a new way to take pictures back in 1837. It only needed 30 minutes of light exposure, and the image didn’t fade with time. Today the process is so much easier but the principals in making good pictures remain the same. As in times past, it is the amateur photographer who leads the way when it comes to impact and originality.
A message from the Chairman of St. Mary’s Bay Camera Club
Would you like to know more about photography? Why not come along and join St. Mary’s Bay Camera Club. Photography is a very satisying and rewarding hobby. The expressive and creative potential is enormous and available to everyone. Our club is the local meeting place on Romney Marsh, in Kent, for people interested in all types of photography.
The club’s aim is to promote, not only technical knowledge, but also visual awareness through illustrated lectures, print and slide shows, talks on equipment, materials and processing, club and inter-club competitions and many other activities aimed at helping people of all ages understand and enjoy photography.
Expert lecturers and judges come regularly to the club to talk and encourage members to apply and increase their skills. Some of our more experienced members also hold informal talks and demonstrations for the less experienced. Come along and spend a couple of hours on a Thursday evening with us to see what goes on. You will always be sure of a warm welcome. We meet in St. Mary’s Bay village hall 7.45 for 8.00pm start.
