Hello, I'm Lyn. I first joined the club in the early eighties and I am one of the longest serving members. I had gone away on holiday to Austria, my first time abroad, armed with a compact camera. I was so disappointed when I got back as the photos did not do the place justice. I decided to get a decent camera and learn all about photography, which is why I joined the Parkstone Camera Club.
I set up my own darkroom and did my own black & white and colour printing and liked to experiment and be creative; solarisation, posterisation, dodging and burning, toning and tinting, montages - it's a lot easier nowadays in the computer!
A camera club is a great way to improve ones photography and associate with like-minded people that helps to motivate and inspire. I know I am biased, but I think that Parkstone Camera Club members are a friendly bunch that are passionate about their interest and keen to share it with others!
