Photography

Frequency: Monthly: 3rd Wednesday 10:30-12:30

Venue: Bar El Martillo, Moraira

Group Leader: John Snell

Assistant Group Leader: Tom Birch

Purpose of the group

The members of the photography group have one thing in common. All have a digital camera and enjoy taking pictures. Some may have a small compact camera, while others may have a DSLR with multiple lenses. Some are complete novices and others have years of experience. But all of us would like to learn a bit more about how to get the best out of our cameras, and sharing our knowledge is a good way to start.

The days when we had to decide how many rolls of film to take on holiday, and then wait for them to be processed when we got home are long gone. Modern technology enables us to take thousands of images on single digital card; even basic compact cameras having several menus to choose from. Moreover, we now have our own “Digital Darkroom”, as there are many different software programmes available to amend or completely change the images we’ve taken.

At the group’s meetings we aim to have tutorials which tackle different subjects, for example composition, exposure, and editing programmes.

Each month a subject is chosen by members to photograph and then share at the following meeting. The group also has about 5 outings per year to places where an interesting range of images can be taken.

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact the group leaders at photography@u3amoraira-teulada.org

Group Outings

The group hopes to have about 5 outings each year. The object is not only to have a social gathering of our members, but also to visit places where different aspects of photography can be practised. One visit could concentrate on landscapes, another to a garden, or buildings or towns of interest. Perhaps one would concentrate on photographing people, another on taking photographs indoors. The venues are all chosen by the members of the group, with the option of getting together for a meal when the photographic element of the outing is over. Sounds like fun?
