We aim to help members improve their photography both technically and artistically, whatever their current level of expertise.

Photo Gear 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.

The subjects for our photos this year have been: My Summer, Looking Down, Abstract, Antique, Movement, Stillness and Cold. There have been many varied and original interpretations submitted. In January we had a meeting devoted to prints and printing which provided an interesting variation of the usual format. In addition to the photos entered and discussed we have looked at winning entries in the Bird and Landscape Photographer of the Year competitions, Manual Exposure and the Use of Neutral Density Filters and watched videos on Tips for Amazing Photos, Focal Length Choice, Beginner Mistakes and Cloudy Day Photography.

You can find a selection of photos from recent meetings by following the links on this page.

A link to the YouTube video '7 Powerful Photography Tips for Amazing Photos' by Joshua Cripps shown at the November meeting is also available on this page.
