Banstead Area

Photography

The current Photography Group was launched in October 2014 to provide an opportunity for those with an interest in photography to develop their skills in a friendly and helpful environment. No in depth command of the subject is expected or necessary, though it helps to have a camera and a basic knowledge of how to use it. The group’s aim is to be inclusive and to cater for a range of abilities and experience.

Meetings are held monthly on the 2nd Wednesday between 10 am and noon, and take place alternately in Banstead Community Hall (Mead Room) and ‘on location’, with the latter offering opportunities for members to take photographs at interesting – and often challenging – venues.

In 2016, we have, for example, photographed butterflies at RHS Wisley, horse racing on Epsom Downs, and panoramas at Painshill Garden, Cobham. The Community Hall meetings usually comprise a presentation on a specific topic, or viewing an instructional DVD loaned from the U3A Resource Centre, plus projection of members’ location photographs from the previous month’s visit.

If you have an ambition to expand your photographic knowledge, encompassing exposure, lighting, composition, and much else, then come and join us, whether you have a compact ‘point and shoot’ camera, a ‘bridge’ camera, or a ‘state of the art’ single lens reflex. If you are already knowledgeable please come and share your learning with us.
