TU3A Photography Group Webpage Update February 2021

During the current Covid restrictions, monthly ‘meetings’ take place on-line via the Shutterfly website every first Tuesday of each month between 2-4pm. Any new member wishing to enrol with the Photography Group can do so by contacting Steve Carter (leader) via the contact details given below and elsewhere on the website and TUTA News magazine. You will then be invited to enrol as part of the Shutterfly group and all you need to do is to respond via the links as prompted.

We operate by identifying a topic, or theme each month around which to compose up to a dozen photographs per member, uploading them to the Shutterfly website, which has been chosen because of its ease of operation (you won’t need to be an IT expert to make it work). At the time of the ‘meeting,’ we are able to make comments about each others’ photographs, replicating very effectively what we would do in a normal meeting.

Topics for 2021 are as follows:

Meeting Date Review Topic Thoughts – be imaginative
5th January Seasons 3 or 4 shots for each season
2nd February Put yourself in the picture Selfies; use of self-timer; you decide the background, but it may tell its own story
2nd March Churches Including church architecture – near, or far
6th April A subject starting with ?? You choose which letter and take shots of subjects which start with that letter
4th May People in everyday life At work; doing a hobby; at play; cooking, shopping
1st June Water In any form: sea, lake, river, tap, bowl, refreshment, deluge etc
6th July Wildlife The full range of choices
August Normally no meeting, but we might arrange a suitable trip if possible
7th September Mountains Technically anything over 1,000’; far, or near
5th October Reflections In water, mirror, window – your choice
2nd November Memorials The varied ways in which people create, or keep memories of loved ones
7th December Dark/low light Free choice, but include night-time/star-scapes
4th January Weather Rain/shine; snow/frost; skyscapes; feel free to add any extreme weather shots

Members will be notified by email as and when Coronavirus regulations will allow us to return to the Jubilee Room, Bredon Village Hall, our normal venue. When normal meetings resume, members will bring their photographs to the Village Hall downloaded to a USB key. We also welcome prints.

The Shutterfly system has proved to be an excellent substitute for normal meetings, but we look forward to the day when we can meet in person again, hopefully fairly soon.

For further information please contact the Steve Carter, Group Leader via the email link at top right of page, or on 07812-794293 .
