Bangor and North Down Camera Club

Welcome to the Bangor and North Down Camera Club Web site

Bangor and North Down Camera Club was founded in 1951, and has one of the largest memberships in Northern Ireland.

We welcome new members, especially those who are new to photography. Our club enjoys an informal and friendly atmosphere where 'good photography' is always the key. Enthusiasm for all kinds of photography is infectious - and members gather formally on Fridays - and informally on Wednesdays - to share their experiences.

We encourage all members, especially those who are new to digital photography, to reach their full potential. Indeed; many of our 'Advanced' club members attend both Friday and Wednesday evenings and readily share their knowledge, skills, experience in film, slide, digital photography, and digital AV projection. We have also Three Internet Groups, two private that is only open to members, Flickr and our new Facebook Feedback Group and one that is open to all (Redbubble) and offers the facility to sell their work.

Whether you are new to photography, or an old hand who wants to rekindle your interest, we'd be glad to see you. Come along and check us out. You won't be disappointed and can be assured of a warm welcome.

I can assure you that you will be made most welcome!

The colour and monochrome prints will be displayed throughout July.

If you would like hands-on tuition with Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Photoshop we are planning to include this in our Wednesday evening sessions.  why not bring along a photograph on a memory stick, ideally Raw or TIFF format, (although a high quality JPG will be OK), and we will guide you while sitting at the computer to achieve whatever you want to do.

We feel that this approach will give you a more direct involvement and learning experience by doing it yourself.

If you would like hands-on tuition on Mount Cutting for your competition print entries, then bring along a full sheet of mounting board (obtainable at Easons in Bangor, Ards Shopping Centre or Office Suppliers outlet half way up Castlereagh Road, Belfast (next to Loopland).

Bring your photos along on a memory stick and participate in a critique session.
If you need help with your camera and its settings, or need assistance, then bring it along your camera and flashgun.

if you normally shoot JPGs, why not switch over to RAW and take a few photos, then bring your RAW files with you on Wednesday night and let us show you the advantages of shooting in RAW format and the process of conversion to TIFF or JPG format.
