Photography

The Photography Group meets on the third Tuesday morning of every month at 10 am. Please contact Henry White Group Leader. Meetings are usually held at a local hall, but sometimes the group arranges to visit a photography exhibition, or to go out on a shoot.
Some months will be devoted to training and learning to take better photographs.

We now have several pictures on this page and in the Gallery from the members of the Photography Group but we still have lots of room for more. So come on all you creative types in the Group, let's see what you are capable of.

2018 Panel Competition

The Photography Group met at Saxon Hall in November when we held our annual panel competition. This year’s theme was “People”. We all voted for our favourite panel. Congratulations to the worthy winners - 1st Peter Bone, 2nd Kathrin Edwards, 3rd Wendy Jones. This year, for the first time, we also included a trophy for the panel that was considered to be the most creative. Marlene Dixon was the worthy winner of this. See photos.

2019 Events

August 2019 Competition

“Life on the Water”

Enter up to three 6” x 4” prints. Either colour or monochrome. Please make sure your name is on the back of each print. These will be judged as separate images, not as a panel, by the rest of the group. These images should have been taken between August 2018 and August 2019. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, each receiving a certificate.

The photograph must include some form of life – wildlife (try close-up or macro shots) as well as human. Think water sports, leisure or working life. We do not want to see just a landscape or seascape photo. Think about taking your photos out of season, early morning or in stormy weather. These could be very atmospheric.

As well as our own coastal waters, places nearby include Priory Park & Southchurch Park lakes, River Crouch at Hullbridge, the Fambridges, Burnham, Paper Mill Lock, Heybridge Basin, River Thames.
Water life from any of your holidays anywhere in the world
Garden ponds, puddles, bird baths, all acceptable so long as we can see ‘life’
I’m sure you can think of many others. It is your interpretation.

November 2019 Panel Competition

“Food for Thought”
Enter six 6” x 4” prints. Either colour or monochrome. Please make sure your name is on the back of each print. These photos will be placed on black paper provided by us and will be judged as a panel by the rest of the group. These should have been taken between November 2018 and November 2019. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, each receiving a certificate. The 1st place will also receive a trophy. Additionally, there will be one panel selected for its creativity. This creative panel will be judged separately by two or three selected judges. The winner of this will receive a certificate and trophy.
This must be food related and could include any food – just one type or many, seasonal or celebrations, people enjoying or working with food, food in the field (agriculture or animals), harvest, allotments, food markets, street food, restaurants (interior or exterior), transportation of foodstuffs (could be unusual, especially from foreign countries), utensils, menus, ingredients. As usual, I’m sure you will think of many others. It is your interpretation.
