Photography Group

2022: Our group has been running for 9 years now. The principle is straightforward – each month members submit 6 pictures on a preselected topic which are individually appraised/constructively criticised by the group. Although not in the context of Photoshop lessons, the pictures have been presented by our resident guru Roy Fidler who showed how, if necessary, they could be improved by some basic manipulation which usually amounted to simple tweaking such as crops, cloning and adjusting shadows/highlights.
Originally we met around the table and viewed the pictures on a projector screen, but eventually moved to a high definition large TV which improved the experience greatly. Since the start in 2013 we haven’t missed a single meeting, so much so that after the Covid lockdown in March 2020 we immediately continued to meet virtually using the 8×8 video conferencing tool. This proved so successful that we decided to continue this way permanently.
January 2022 marked our 100th session when Roy decided to stand down from his role as guru and led matters for the last time in April. We are extremely grateful for all his work and effort over the years – resulting in a noticeable improvement in our respective skills.
I will take over the reins from May and will curate the pictures as before..

Sorry, at the moment, due to time restraints, the group is fully subscribed. If you are interested in joining in the future and would like to be added to the waiting list, or for further information, please complete the contact form below >>>
