Österlens Fotoklubb

The Photo club was formed in the fall 1985. Many of those who started the club is still active. Today we are almost thirty members and it usually comes around fifteen members to each meeting. Not bad considering that Simrishamn is a small town. We meet every Wednesday and every time we compete internally in the club with images. It could be b / w or color, hard copies or digital images. Our ambition is to develop ourselves to become better photographers and image processors. We do this through discussing each image with constructive criticism and to share our experience. The atmosphere is always light-hearted and enjoyable. Members are from those who photographed throughout life to those who recently started. Today all use digital photograph. A few times a year, usually we also invite other photographers to the club showing and talking about their pictures for us to get inspiration. In the fall we meet Ystad Fotoklubb for our traditional club competition. Sometimes we went for photo excursions to broaden our horizons, everything from local excursions to little farther away as Denmark. We judge images for other clubs and then we have the benefit of all photo discussions we have at the club. Club members also participate in "Skåne Photo" and "the National Photo Exhibition" with success. Members also shows pictures from various trips. Each summer, the club has an exhibition "Silla plank" in connection with "the Tradesmen market" in Simrishamn where all members have the opportunity to participate. We have a spring breakup with barbecue and a christmas breakup with something to eat and drink.
