Next meeting will be Wednesday, 10 November 2021 at 20:00

Come join us at our next Viewfinders club meeting on the evening of Wednesday, 10 November, starting at 20:00. The meeting will be held at the church and will also be streamed live via Zoom. The login information will be sent to all members by e-mail several days prior to the club meeting.

The main event of the evening will be our external speaker, Bill Funk. Bill is an American amateur photographer living in Brussels.

His belief is that every organism and object on the planet has a soul, and that photography is all about getting beneath the surface, finding its soul, and making it visible.

On his website you can see a collection of roughly 30 years of his work on film and digital media, some of which he will be presenting at the meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you at the club meeting on November.

Send you suggestions for club activities here.

We have a new challenge for the month of December.

The theme is FRAGILE.

October Meeting

Alun presented a short tutorial on Color Calibration at the “front end”. After briefly discussing in-camera adjustment of the white balance, he showed how to make a custom camera profile using a color checker passport and your photo processor to create a custom ICC profile.

The main event of the evening was the presentation of images by 6 members: Bob Taylor (Pairi Daiza), Endre Sebok (Double Exposure), Marci Bayona (Painting with your camera), Marko Saynekoski (Ruisrock Music Festival), Miguel Angel Vilar (Architecture), and finally Alun Foster (Landscapes).

September Meeting

For the first time since the start of the pandemic early last year, we were able to hold our meeting, the new season, at the Swedish church, accompanied by the live streaming of the meeting via Zoom. There were some 20 members present at the church with another 10 members attending via Zoom.

The main event of the evening was our external speaker, Damien Maguire, a professional photographer from the UK who has recently relocated to Namur. With over 25 years of experience, he is involved in many areas of commercial photography, specializing in architecture and interiors, products, portraits, and public relations. Damien presented and discussed 52 images from his Press Archive.

More information about Damien can be found on his website.

This was followed by Alun's presentation on White Balance. He focused on the colour temperatures of common light sources and their effect on the photos that we take. He then provided insights on adjusting white balance, both “in camera” and in “post processing”.

Photowalk at the « Xe Biennale de photographie en Condroz : New Waves »

On Sunday 29 August, members had the opportunity to visit a photo exhibition while going on photo walk in the Condroz, above Huy. Some 15 photographers and 5 collective groups were exposing along the trail (the Ravel) and in former factories or workshops.

Thanks to Anne-Christine for organizing this visit: "The “Xe Biennale de photographie en Condroz » took us three (Marci, Kathy and Anne-Christine) through a succession of varied landscapes and testimonies of the economic industrial activity in the beautiful Hoyoux valley, while offering us the perspective of artists on these spaces.

Had we had bikes, we could have visited the whole exhibition but by foot, we did only half (7 km), starting from the former sheet metal workshop in Marchin to Modave. The visit of a former stone sawmill on the way was also very interesting."

Photowalk in the Geographical Arboretum of Tervuren

In July, Hector was kind to organize one more photowalk in the Arboretum.

A participant told us during the guided visit: “After leaving for many years close to the Tervuren´s Arboretum, I´m discovering now many aspects completely unknown to me.” We enjoyed the explanations of a ranger with 15 years of exclusive work there, visited some areas dedicated to North America, recognized the environmental impact of last year´s drought, and much, much more. Most of us had lunch and stayed for several hours together.

Photowalk in Namur

One of the last photowalks to close the season was in the city of Namur on Saturday 19th June. Starting at the train station, we walked along the old city streets, the two rivers, the Citadel and visited a photography exhibition by Nick Hannes. It was great to meet again some fellow Viewfinders, and even meeting some members in person for the first time. Here are some photos from the day.
