The Photography group is currently in need of more members so is meeting every two months until we get some new members.

We meet in members' houses and the emphasis is on friendly competitions on varied subjects, plus
sharing skills and experience with each other, as well as occasional photoshoots/practical projects.

The only things required are an interest in getting the best out of your digital camera and the photographs it can take. We share our photographs by email - and we can show you how to do that if necessary.

So please come and join us.

JANUARY 18th

The January competition “Clocks” resulted in 1st Diane – Musee d’Orsay, Paris; 2nd Walter - Durham Markets; 3rd Walter - Astronomical Clock, Old Town Hall, Prague. All the pictures were excellent, and it had been very challenging to decide the best. It was agreed to show 6 of the pictures at the AGM meeting, and Jeff presented the display. It was also agreed to sound out opinion on a 2019 calender, on a similar theme, but perhaps including pictures just a little further afield. The survey at the AGM suggested a 2019 calendar would again be popular.

MARCH 15th

The March meeting on sculptures gave us a judging dilemma, as we found it hard to separate the different pictures. In the end we had a triple tie for first place with Ram(New Zealand) – Bob; Frog(Middlewood Way) – Jeff; and Hands(Gretna Green) – Derek. We also had a quadruple tie for fourth place with Horse Column(Woodbank Park) – Derek; Young Couple(Giethoorn, Holland) – Walter; Horse Rider(Owain Glydor, Wales) - Bob; and Female Buddha(Thailand) – Bob; We also decided to revise our programme slightly to our assist our choice of pictures for a 2019 calender.
