    APUG in DCC

    With the increasing rush of the photographic fraternity to embrace the digital age what occurs to me is the possible loss of the knowledge and craft that is associated with traditional photography.
    Within the Dublin Camera Club I would think that there are less than a dozen members still using fim out of an active membership of eighty.
    I have been so trilled myself to find such an active world wide group still committed to film since my joining APUG that I want everyone within the club to join with me.
    To this end I hope to start an "APUG" within the club, I might call it DAPUG. The "D" would stand for Dublin. Because we are all in the one club and meet weekly it should prove no problem for us to meet on a monthly basis.
    Do I need permission from Sean or the council members to attempt this ?

    I doubt you'd need permission Vincent but why not get the film folks on here so we can chat with them too

    Hi Fintan,
    If you are talking about the film folk in the DCC - then I'm afraid that they are not aware of the existance of APUG. I've yet to show them my mamifesto that I've been working on for the last 2 weeks. If the group get going I would hope that they would join APUG. As you know the club have a gallery which we operate on Saturdays only. The average exhibition runs for eight weeks and the attendance over that period is usually around 600 - 800. For the same length of time I have had 3500 views on my various photographs. I think this is a big selling point for APUG not to mention the various comments and exchanges that you can have.

    Anyway I'll keep you informed.
    Cheers
    Vincent

    I'm quite interested in joining DCC lately and I tend to shoot more film than digital... somehow!

    May make it to a meeting there on Tuesday week
