We aim to help members improve their photography both technically and artistically, whatever their current level of expertise.
We submit photographs each month on a set theme. These are put up on the Internet several days before the meeting and are then discussed and commented on by everyone in the Group. We also use U3A, Internet and other resources to look at and discuss specific in-camera and photo-editing techniques, the work of acclaimed photographers and work shown at prestigious exhibitions. We have occasional hands-on practical sessions.
Our themes for 2019-20, presented in the new surroundings of Unit7, were 'Still Life', 'Orange', 'Patterns', 'A Place of my Own', 'Doorways' and 'Artistic Expression'. There was a good entry for all of these and lively discussion of the pictures. We also looked at the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, entries in the Sony 2020 World Photography competition, using layers, night photography and photographing clouds.
The two final meetings were cancelled but photos on the themes of 'Clouds' and 'Circles and Curves' were shared online. The group also decided to continue to share photos on a variety of themes (suitable for lockdown) online during the summer break.
You can see photos from these lockdown themes by following the links on this page.
