Members on a recent trip to Canterbury were fortunate enough to stumble upon the filming of a scene for Last of the Summer Wine. In the scene Foggy and Clegg are attempting to take pictures of Norah Batty's bedroom while Compo, who has seen it all before, looks on.

February 2017

What an absolutely brilliant talk we had this week. Alex Hare gave us a really interesting talk on his journey so far in the realm of landscape photography backed up by a display of stunning photographs.

I imagine that everyone in the club is now looking at Luminance Masking.

Well done Alex!

January 2017

And so we begin a new year at the Club, and what a start we had.
A superb evening delivered to us by our macro guru's, Phil and Gary, with a very informative talk on Macro photography. It was good to see so many of you there. I, for one, now have a wish list of extension tubes and close up photography filters! Thanks again Chaps! and don't forget if you want to read through the information supplied tonight it is all on the Gateway Camera Club Web site.
