Gaining knowledge through Publications
  • There are a number of ways where we can learn more about photography outside of the group, by reading books, eBooks or the internet webpages.
  • Digital Publications
  • To find out more about using online resource, click on the members Digital Photography - Publications page.
  • Topics include:
  • - Online through your local library
  • - Online through Pinterest
  • - Online through Amazon Kindle
  • Physical Books and Magazines
  • I know that a lot of people prefer to hold and read a physical book rather than an electronic device, and of course there are a host of physical publications on photography available through your local library, bookshop, charity shops or online shopping.
  • You will often find books on our subject in the charity and second-hand book shops around Beccles. A couple of quid gets you books that originally retailed for £25 and of course you are also helping the charity.
  • The basics of composition and picture making doesn't age, so even books too old to have digital sections can give insight.
  • And after you have benefited, why not bring them in to share or better still base a talk around what you have learnt or not understood.
