This is the web site for Los Alcazares Digital Camera Club <>LADCC

The club comprises a group of people who have a common interest in digital photography. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month to swap information (see annual program). At this meeting we usually hold a competition on the subject as shown in the program; where members submit two photographs they have taken during the current year, for a critique by the other members to enable us to learn more about photography and the use of computer software. See Winners page for past winners and also the "Members page " where the submissions of each member´s contributions are shown for the current year

 On the third Tuesday of each month we have an Activity Day; (also shown in the Annual program) this may be a field trip to a place which has a strong photographic interest, a workshop on photographic techniques or software, a visit to an event of photographic interest or, perhaps a project of common interest. The places visited on field trips are all within a two hour car drive and, once there, members can practice what they have learned in the workshops.

 The exchange of information, both at the meetings and on the field trips, characterizes the club with members covering all standards from someone with their first camera to others who have many years of experience behind them.

 We are a friendly crowd who welcome anyone with an interest in digital photography and we look forward to meeting you.

 Club meetings and workshops take place at Las Claras Community Centre in Los Narejos which is a suburb of Los Alcazares. (See maps above for detail

Newspaper Report 1st March 2021

Seeing the almond blossom out on the trees over the past few weeks reminded members of Los Alcázares Camera Club that the last time they met in person was on a field trip in February 2020 to photograph the orchards at Torremendo. Normally, the Club meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view and vote for the best photograph in their monthly photographic competition. This takes place at 10.30am in Las Claras Community Centre, Los Narejos. On the third Tuesday in the month the Club has a field trip to interesting venues where members can take photographs and enjoy a meal together with family or friends.

 

Unfortunately, due to the virus, the Club has been unable to get together in person for a whole year however, one member who had a ‘Zoom’ account, suggested that members should meet instead online. This has proved to be a very successful move as it has allowed those who are unable to leave the UK to join in the meeting with their Spanish-based members, something that no-one had thought possible before ‘lockdown’.

 

On the first Tuesday of every month Los Alcázares Camera Club now holds its photo competition on ‘Zoom’ at 10.30am (9.30am UK) and, at their next meeting in March, members will also be able to view an instructional video. Due to the restriction of movement, titles for the monthly competitions have needed to become more creative, for example this year subjects include ‘Vegetables’, ‘Drinks’ and ‘View from the Window’!
