Learning more about photography to produce better images

Do you take photographs?  Would you like to take better photographs?

It’s all about pictures and the desire to communicate, so our aim is to promote an appreciation of all forms of photography.  All photographers, regardless of experience or the equipment they use, are welcome in the Photographic Group.  It is a group for those that enjoy photography and wish to improve their photographic technique and knowledge; it is for beginners and experienced photographers alike.  You don’t require an expensive single lens reflex camera to join in; just an interest in photography and a simple camera.

Many meetings take the form of photographic expeditions followed on subsequent meetings a review discussion of photographs taken.  Expeditions are interspersed with talks and occasional Study Days. Regular assignments are set.
