Photography... [Feb. 16th, 2007|10:46 pm]
The Love Bug
When we first moved to Doncaster (well, when Caroline moved to Doncaster and I was still living in Slough) we were nosing around Doncaster market and saw that there was a photography exhibition in the Corn Exchange. We went to have a look, and it was an exhibition of photography which had been taken by members of the Through The Lens Camera Club. We got talking to a couple of the members and decided to pop along to one of their meetings, just to see what it was like.

That was 8/9 months ago, and we still haven't been.

I've just sent off an email to one of the contacts at the Club, and we're going to go there this coming Thursday. My boss has agreed to me working a couple hours earlier every so often, so I can get out earlier. Caroline's mum has agreed to look after Amy for the night, so it'll just be me, Caroline and 2 cameras.

It's about time we did this... I'm really looking forward to it.

I hope your camera club is nice and welcoming to women. The two that I've been to haven't been all that welcoming. Women seem to be quite a new thing to the clubs. The Crawley one has so many references to naked women. I'm not against nude photography, but it's discussed and joked about at a different level.

The Hove one, the members just didn't speak to me!

It'll do you good to have some together time alone. Get to the pub or something afterwards too ;)

Looking at the website, they seem to have a few woman photographers in the Club (no, not in the club!!) and the Club only has 30 members, so the male/female ratio is probably comparatively high.

Going to the pub after is a cracking idea! :o)

Go for it. I'm going to my first meeting to a local camera club meeting this week as well :)
