Coordinator Jim Melville
Due to the continued uncertainties of Covid-19 and taking into account the safety and well-being of all our members, it is regretted that there will be no monthly face to face meetings until April 2021 at the earliest. Nevertheless this situation will be kept under review.
However the Photography Group is now holding its monthly meeting using Zoom on the 4th Thursday from 2:00pm. We are grateful to David Venables who will be attending meetings on both 26th November & 17th December to assess our images. The topics are “Industry” then “Stairs”.
A programme for 2021 is under consideration and will be circulated to the members and published on this webpage.
Normally the Photography Group meets on the 4th Thursday of each month between 2:00 - 4:30 pm in the Village Hall, Station Road, Balsall Common CV7 7FF. Members contribute £2 per meeting to cover the group’s costs which include hire of the hall, refreshments, external judges and speakers.
Our aim is to enjoy, through self-help learning principles, opportunities to improve our photographic skills by sharing members’ interests, abilities and experiences. These include: “seeing” and “composing” the picture; taking it correctly using whatever camera you own and the production of images (digital or print).
We have a monthly theme competition where prints and projected digital images are assessed by either group members or a visiting judge (the latter usually quarterly).
Frequently there will be a talk on some photographic skill or a “hands on” workshop, all of which is outlined in this year’s programme. In September 2021 an away day is planned to the Cotswold Wildlife Park.
Every six months, in January and July, we hold an exhibition of members’ prints in Balsall Common Library. Members’ photographs can also be seen in “The Bugle.”
