SSCC Joins Sussex Photographic Federation
Seven Sisters Camera Club has now joined the Sussex Photographic Federation, extending links with other Clubs and activities throughout Sussex. 3/9/13
Season 1 Begins
The first season of Seven Sisters Camera Club begins this coming Monday 2nd September 2013. The Club has a full programme of Monday meeting events throughout the season and will maintain all year round activities following this summer's success.
In addition, there will be a strong commitment to members wanting to advance their own photographic skills through continuous support, as well as regular practical workshop sessions. Informal, relaxed and 'hands-on', these sessions have worked well over the summer and seem preferable to formal class-room style tuition and 'courses'. Seven Sisters Camera Club is committed to leading the field in helping its members fulfil their personal goals. 27/8/13

Night Shoot Hoot
On the 12th August many of us could be found on Eastbourne beach, next to the Pier, for some low light photography. The weather was kind, the light was pretty good, and the event was really well attended for what turned out to be a most enjoyable shoot with some wonderful pictures emerging. No doubt some of these can be seen on our Flickr page. 13/8/13
Old Town History Walk
On the 29th July, a most intriguing guided walk around Old Town Eastbourne revealed some of the historical gems within the Club's home town. Tales of local characters, Motcombe Farm, Henty's Iron Works and the ancient Ocklynge Avenue were just some of the delights we were shown, ending up in the 12th century Lamb pub. 29/7/13
Birling Gap Moonlight
Members enjoyed a last minute meet at Birling Gap on Sunday evening, 21st July. Conditions were just right for some moon-lit views of the beach and cliffs. This was an excellent 'field' lesson in night time/moon light photography and we look forward to sharing some of the pictures taken during our fast approaching Club season starting in September. 22/7/13
The studio workshop turned out to be a great success. Held in the Club's venue at St. John's Parish Hall, the huge space available allowed three lighting set-ups for different subjects. These included two model shoots and a splashing-fruit-in-water set up. This was an excellent opportunity to try out studio equipment in a relaxed environment with tea and biccies all thrown in the inclusive price of £3. Marvellous value and we will be doing more! 16/7/13
In order to ease the transition into a fully-fledged club and maintain the momentum achieved to date, the members of Eastbourne Camera Club voted unanimously to adopt the name Seven Sisters Camera Club at a meeting held on 12th July. There was widespread appreciation that it was important to avoid any complications, and it was therefore decided to move forward with the Seven Sisters name adoption 16/7/13.
