Club latest – April 19th

Dear Members,

Shaftesbury Camera club will resume meetings Thursday April 23rd at 7.00 for 7.30pm in the comfort of your own home. For the first meeting we will have about an hour on Zoom with Bill presenting the weekly programme of talks and competitions he has arranged for the next few weeks, a bit of social chat and any questions you may have hopefully answered.

An email invitation will be sent out a day or two beforehand containing the Zoom log-in details. Most users can just click on the password protected link and will go straight to the meeting. If that doesn’t work, just open Zoom on your machine and join meeting by typing in the meeting ID and password. If neither works phone Chris 01963 370900 or Val on her number given in the email.

If you and your partner are using 2 or more devices make sure that the sound and microphone are turned off entirely on one of them or take one to another room to prevent acoustic feedback. Please remember that any background noise in your home will be broadcast to the meeting!

If you wish to try this out beforehand there will be a test meeting on Tuesday 7.00-8.00pm. Do just join Chris to check the technology works. Same phone number if you need help.

We would like to hear from you with new ideas and new ways that we can engage with photography over the lockdown. We may be able to offer additional sessions for small groups depending on the level of interest. We already have a self-help group learning Affinity Photo on Monday mornings.

 We already have ¾ of our members on Zoom and look forward to seeing you all on Thursday if not before.

Best wishes

SCC Committee
