The Photography Group has been running for several years now. Initially it was open to anyone with an interest in photography and I found that most of our members were people with pocket cameras seeking to learn what all the buttons and symbols on their cameras were about and how to transfer photos into a computer for storage. After a couple of years I felt that most of the people who had these sort of problems had been helped as far as possible so I restarted the group but this time for people with SLR or Bridge cameras who were interested in taking their skills a little further, sharing the knowledge that they had or just looking at and chatting about photographs taken with these sorts of cameras.

We have been running in this format for several years and have settled down to a core group who find the format useful or interesting, or both!
Due to my interest in computers and Home Entertainment Systems we are able to look at photos on a large television screen and I can make the TV mirror what is showing on the computer when we get into Photoshop editing.

Our activities include taking photos (naturally!) sometimes table top photography and sometimes outdoor shoots. We have tackled portrait photography in the past but we do not have the facilities for lights and backdrops etc. Sometimes we share photo editing skills and some of our members are experts in this area as are some members on composition and absolutely stunning ideas for photographic projects. We have helped members who are planning to upgrade their camera or other equipment with suggestions as to what might be useful and also helped members to understand the workings of new cameras. This has included explaining what all the different settings, knobs and dials are about as well as the basics of controlling a camera to get a well exposed photo.
We meet once a month on the last Friday of the month at 2.00 p.m.

If you are interested in this group please let me know Tony Faulkner
