Welcome to the group! Our aim is to enjoy our photography and have fun learning how to take more photos we are happier with! Our members include beginners through to experts, using all types of cameras from smartphones to compacts and DSLRs. New members welcome: please email the group leader to join.
We meet by zoom, on the second Monday of every month, 2-4pm. A member of the group (and on occasions a special external speaker) will lead a session on a specific aspect or topic of photography e.g. Composition, lighting, timing, portraiture, street, wildlife, editing etc. Members then choose a topic that the group are encouraged to take photos on in their own time as a “photoshoot” (it is usually similar to that month’s talk topic). At each meeting, after the talk, we show images our members have sent in from the previous month’s ‘photo-shoot’ topic that they would like to share and discuss.
We also meet up informally during the month outdoors in small groups to take photos together as a “photo-shoot” and learn from each other. If folk wish, they gather afterwards for refreshments in a cafe to chat, compare notes, catch up and review their photos together. They are a great opportunity to learn from each other and get to know more about their camera’s features and settings.
Members will be notified via email of the monthly meeting date, topics and any photoshoot outings that month. The monthly meetings are recorded and the link to the video is sent to members so they can watch at leisure if they were unable to make the Monday meeting.
With the photographer’s permission, some of the images taken on the photoshoot topics are put in the Gallery on this website (see below). To get the full picture just click on the image.
Next meetings:November 11th – Editing using Affinity; December 11th (title awaited) ; (no meeting in January); Feb 12th: Emotion in photography
