Here are some dates for the diary –
January 12th – Saturday 2:30pm at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery Queens Street to see the final day of the Trains, Planes and Auto-mobiles photography exhibition.
From February to July we will be meeting on the first Tuesday of the month from 7pm at The Outhouse, Broughton Street Lane. The activities and themes are as follows:
February 5th – Activity – Darkness (Making the most of the low light)
March 5th – Theme – Layered (Meaning and image)
April 2nd – Open – Personal projects
May 7th – Activity – Hidden Edinburgh (or your local area)
June 4th – Theme – Transition (Depicting change)
July 2nd – Open – Personal projects
The theme this month is “The Insider” – bring along photographs that fit the theme but also take part in the challenge on the night to make a photo inside The Outhouse.
A reminder the Annual SSHoP Photographers lecture is on at the NGS at 6pm, 30th November.
This month is for personal projects whether they be a germ of an idea, a work in progress or a completed body of images. Come along and give people some constructive criticism.
Our next meeting is at the Outhouse from 7pm on Wednesday the 3rd of October. This months theme is “Empty”. Be inspired by the sudden quiet after the fringe, Eggleston’s empty America or interpret one of the words many definitions –
- containing nothing; not filled or occupied.
- (of words or a gesture) lacking meaning or sincerity.
- having no value or purpose.
- remove all the contents of (a container).
noun: empty; plural noun: empties

As always –
Free to Attend!
The next DCC meeting will be on Tuesday July 3rd at 7pm at the Outhouse on Broughton Street Lane.
Last month six photographers participated in the 10×10 challenge and took 10 shots in 10 minutes. This month we will be bringing 10 prints to pass around and discuss for a minute per image. Hence the title of the monthly meet-up: 60×60. Hopefully if all has gone to plan we will have 60 prints to look at.
If you missed the last meeting it is not to late to take your own 10×10 challenge and bring the results along to share. Pick a place, set a timer and create.
Last month’s reading touched upon how photographers capture and collect the moments around them, but also how the reality depicted in the print and the reality of life differ greatly. Did those 10 minutes preserve something real? Was art or artefact created?
Everyone is welcome to attend, we look forward to seeing you there!
As we experiment with new formats for the monthly meetings we would appreciate any ideas or feedback for improving – leave a comment here, tweet, facebook message or comment on instagram!
Advance warning – in August we intend to have one or two festival exhibition meet-ups. Do send your suggestions in for shows or exhibitions to check out!
The next DCC meeting will be on Wednesday June 6th at 7pm at the Outhouse on Broughton Street Lane. Weather permitting, we suggest everyone heading out to take 10 shots in 10 minutes – for discussion around the act of making images, and potentially for showing the images at a future DCC…
Everyone is welcome as are all ideas!
The next meeting of the DCC will be at Stills on Thursday June 1st.
The theme is Sculpture / Sculptural.
Doors open 6.30pm for 7pm start.
£3 donation to Stills on the night.
