The Summer Photography Course is rapidly approaching – this year it starts on the 30th June 2014.
Full details can be found at http://wdps.org/summer-photography-course-walthamstow-2014/
This year we will be using Eventbrite to both collect payments and manage the attendee list.
The Summer Course is incredibly important to the Society from a financial point of view and we ask all members to share the above page on Facebook, Twitter and any other social network or forum you may be a member of.
On most pages of this site there are sharing buttons to make this easier.
I just thought I’d share a few statistics of the new website one year since its creation.

It’s started! Over 40 prints plus digital images.
Our exhibition at the Vestry House Museum runs until the 18th May 2014 and entry is free.
“Discover unseen, or unnoticed, aspects of Waltham Forest as recorded by the Walthamstow and District Photographic Society.
Think hidden locations, quirky viewpoints, interesting details and alternative takes on the familiar.
The Society brings together photographers with a wide range of interests; from natural history to portraiture, macro, abstracts, landscape and black and white work, all of which reflects and documents the Borough.”
As you know, Andy has secured us an exhibition at the Vestry House Museum, Vestry Road, from 15th March to 18th May 2014. This is a great opportunity for members to show work, both printed and projected.
The theme by popular consent will be Unseen Waltham Forest. We will aim to uncover and explore aspects of Waltham Forest whether unseen, or unnoticed, by the public. Hidden or unusual locations, quirky viewpoints, interesting details, an alternative take on the familiar – whatever suggests itself.
The deadline for submissions will be 24th February next year.
Work can be black and white or colour, and the standard size print will be 20×16″ or 500x400mm; mounts can be black or white. You can submit up to 3 prints. Ian will be offering the usual printing and mounting service, and will give further details at any meeting, including how to submit images for projections.
This is also an opportunity to sell work, details to follow.On the 16th December
we will take the opportunity to brainstorm this theme. Come along with suggestions no matter how strange or bizarre they are.
As this is a major exhibition we can reach out to people and organisations for photographic opportunities, so if you would like us to write to someone let us know who.
There are a lot of gifts you could give this holiday season, but when it comes to something really meaningful, there’s nothing quite like the gift of a book you’ve made yourself. But before you start having visions of gluing and sewing together pages, check out the options from Blurb.
Blurb lets you make seriously beautiful books using their free tools. Just add photos and text, choose your options (like paper and cover type), and then order. Of course, you do have to decide just what kind of book you want to make. But relax, because Blurb has put together a cool gift center page to give you lots of ideas.
For instance, if you’ve got a genealogical bent, there’s the Family History book.
For those with newborns (or those that know someone with a newborn), a Baby Book might be just the thing.
And if you’re the kind of person who keeps getting asked for copies of your recipes, think about making a food book.
This holiday season, make your gift recipients feel really special by making them something special. There really is a book for everyone.”

Blurb also have a mobile app for the iPhone and iPad.
Blurb mobile is an app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you create sharable online stories—and turn those stories into beautiful 7×7 inch books. What’s a story exactly? Well, in the Blurb mobile world, it’s a sequence of photos and other media you capture on your phone. It can tell a very literal story—with beginning, middle, and end—or it can be a collection of photos.
Just take photos and video with the app, or import them from your camera roll (including those saved Instagram photos on your phone). You can add captions to your photos too. You can even record your little monsters saying “trick or treat,” and attach the audio track to your photo.
