Monthly Set Subject Competition
This competition comprises monthly rounds (Sept-June) which are open to all members. The theme of this year’s subjects is “colours”. Images should use, exploit or be inspired by the chosen colour. Think laterally – some colours are used in book/film titles, common phrases and other contexts (eg Black Beauty, silver bullet, white wedding, red mist, etc). Images for any month can be taken at any time from July 2018 onwards – so ample opportunity to plan ahead.  Further details are included in the programme.  Image submission guidelines are provided on documents page.

Next round March – judged on Wed 27 Mar – subject “Red”

Camera, digital, studio, darkroom practical help

We offer photography and digital imaging practical/coaching sessions to help you improve your images and get more from your camera.  We can be flexible over timing to suit your availability. Sessions can be varied to suit particular requirements of beginners and more experienced enthusiasts and can be 1-1 or small group based in our meeting space.

In particular, beginners can sign up for our “Getting to know your camera” session which includes a month’s membership of the Club to meet our members, experience our meetings and get more tips.

Additionally we have studio “open days” planned for you to see or use our studio/darkroom facilities.

Please contact us via the contact form to talk about your specific needs.
