We began our 2020/21 Club season on Wednesday, 16th September. Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we are not for the time being meeting in person at our usual Castle Street venue, however we will be continuing our programme of events online via Zoom. This includes speakers, competitions, workshops, editing advice, terrible lighting, dodgy backgrounds and plenty of banter!
It can be daunting to join a club where you don’t know anyone, particularly as we can only currently meet in cyberspace, but we were all new once too and are confident that whatever your area of photographic interest, experience or level of skill, the club will provide a great focus for your photography.
Don’t worry if you’ve never used Zoom before – it’s been a learning curve for most of us. You will need either a phone, tablet, ipad, laptop or computer with a webcam and microphone (they usually come built-in). Download either the FREE Zoom app from the play store on your phone/tablet, or download Zoom for laptops and desktops here (choose Zoom Client for Meetings). The software will install automatically. Each week, you will receive an email from the Club with a link to our meeting – simply click the link, making sure you choose to share your video and audio when prompted. Any problems get in touch and we will do our best to help.
The Covid situation will be reviewed in December and a decision made by the Club’s committee as to whether we can safely meet again in person at the start of 2021.
