Photo Interest Group
Wirksworth U3A Photographic Interest Group
*** Coronavirus update - meetings are suspended for now, but we will hopefully be organising online meetings in the forthcoming months
This group is intended for all those with a wish to learn more about photography, and to have a place to get inspiration, share images and meet others with the same interest. The group is intended for all levels of experience, and any photographic equipment whether a bag full of cameras and lenses, or a smart phone.
We meet on the third Tuesday of each month, usually from 2 - 4pm, and either have indoor meetings on topics of interest, or photography trips in the area.
Some of the areas we have, or will cover in future meetings are:-
- Using different photographic devices, including smart phones,
- Sharing photographs using sites such as Flickr,
- Photo storage, photo manipulation with software,
- How to compose photos
- Basic photographic concepts
- Restoring old photos
- Type of photography such as close up (macro), portrait, photographing movement, time lapse
... and of course there is a wealth of photographic subjects and locations in the locality!
We share images at some meetings for constructive comment, not competition.
We are a friendly group with a current membership of around 25.
