|firstname.lastname@example.org with 'U3A Photography' as the subject|
The Photography Group exists to encourage everyone interested in the subject to improve their skills and experience.
At our meetings we enjoy talks on topics illustrating photographic techniques, technical details and artistic considerations. We also learn from each other by sharing photos that the members take for each month's special photo theme (such as trees, motion, indoors, morning...).
One key activity is our photo outings which we do several times a year. With a theme or activity in mind we support each other while taking photos at locations such as Media City, Stockport Market and Bramhall Hall. Then we review our work on-line and in meetings so that we can learn from the successes and failures of everyone.
Our members range in skill from new starters who wish to improve beyond being mobile phone "snappers" to experienced photographers with awards and prizes. The one thing we all have in common is the desire to share and benefit from everyone's knowledge and experience.
If you enjoy taking photos and would like to learn more please come along and join us.
Please have a look at our gallery which has a selection of photographs taken by the group. Photography Group Gallery
2020 Report: View
The Photography Group has continued to meet throughout 2020, moving to Zoom meetings from March. In addition to the monthly meeting we also organised a number of external speakers on different topics to ensure we kept in touch with group members. Unfortunately we were not able to organise the regular outings.
2021 has started under a new co-ordinator as David Pechey steps down after 5 years where the group has grown and gone from strength to strength under his guidance. We regularly have 25 members join the Zoom meetings.
2021 has a full programme of monthly talks, Monthly and Quarterly themes, where members are encouraged to "Get out with their Cameras". Members post these pictures throughout the month on the Group Facebook page for comment and this often leads to debate on how a photograph could be enhanced. Each month members submit their favourite picture and these are collated into a Photowall, links to these are available through the main Bramhall U3A website. New members with an interest in Photography (at any level) are most welcome to join the group.
2019 Report: View
The Photography Group continues to grow and now has more than 30 members with around 20 joining for each monthly meeting. Each month we have a photo theme for members to interpret and some of the results are posted as a photowall album which can be accessed from our U3A Photography Group web page (http://bramhallu3a.org.uk/groups/photography-gallery.html). We continue to enjoy monthly talks on all aspects of photography ranging from technical issues to artistic guidance and several members have contributed their experiences. As a Group we have visited a number of locations to try out techniques and support each other including this year to Anson Engine Museum, Salford Quays, Reddish Petting Farm and Lyme Park.
