The New Members Group
As well as coming to the Club’s Tuesday evening meetings, new members are also invited to our New Members Group meetings. They take place on Thursdays, approximately monthly, at the English Language Centre, in Salisbury Road, Hove.
New Members Group meetings are workshop-based and so are a great way to develop your photographic skills. There is an emphasis on developing your photographic eye and thinking about how we communicate visually. The workshop programme includes illustrated talks on making your photography more dynamic, creating abstract work and thinking about how images work together as sets. There are also workshops on practical subjects, such as basic post-processing techniques, and follow-up themed competitions, where your work is assessed by the workshop leaders.
The New Members Group is for photographers of all levels, from beginners through to those who are experienced. You’ll get feedback on your work as well as learning practical skills. You also have the opportunity to share your own expertise and ideas.
The New Members Group meetings are smaller and more informal than the Tuesday Club meetings and are a great way to meet other new members. We like to round off the evening at the nearby Hove Place pub, which is another good way to get to know each other.
We suggest that new members attend New Members Group meetings for their first year, but this is up to you. We also recommend that you join our mailing list and/or update your preferences to receive information about the New Members Group.
We encourage new members to come to the Club’s Tuesday evenings as well as to the Thursday workshops. The Club attracts visiting speakers from all walks of photography and they are invariably generous with their experience, knowledge and advice. We also encourage new members to enter images for Tuesday critique evenings, which is another way of having your work assessed by commentators from both outside and within the club. Members are also encouraged to submit entries to Club exhibitions and to external exhibitions and competitions.
We look forward to seeing you.
Audrey, Jo & Brian.

The New Members Group got off to a great start on Thursday 19th September at the ‘Welcome’ evening. There were 24 new members, some of whom were completely new to photography through to others who are professional photographers. Everyone joined in the group discussions with great gusto, ably led by more longstanding members of the Camera Club.
