PHOTOGRAPHY:


The Photography Group normally meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month from 9:30am to 11.30am in the New Hall at Carnon Downs Village Hall. 50p is charged for tea, coffee and biscuit, and any profit made is spent on speakers and models. New members are always welcome, regardless of your level of expertise or equipment. You only need to be interested in taking better pictures and seeing what others have done.

26th March was a members' meeting and as well as a varied selection of photos for the monthly subject "Against the Light" which provoked much conversation. We also had offerings from members on a wide variety of subjects. Chris B showed a series of photos of a beech tree in her garden which had fallen during  high winds and which her husband is gradually chopping up for logs and planks.

Mandy showed shots, especially portraits, for plays for which she has done the publicity. David A showed photos of his recent holiday in Lanzarote including the unique and fascinating house of the artist Cesar Manrique. There were several other contributions all of which made an interesting morning.
At our next meeting on 23rd April we will have a guest Richard Thomas, who was the judge for the 2018 competition. He will be holding a studio lighting morning using one light and a reflector.
We hope to have a visit to see the bluebells at Enys Gardens in early May. On May 14th the subject for the month will be Easter images.

Monthly subject mornings
Members to bring a maximum of 10 digital images of the set subject.
These will be shown in the second half of the mornings presentation.
To save time on the morning of the meeting images can also be sent by Dropbox or email to    adrian.rowlands3@gmail.com

Field Trips
All field trips are attended at members own risk.
When we visit local attractions they will have carried out their own risk assessments and you are advised to note their recomendations and act accordingly.
On other field trips to the Cornish countryside most of us are aware of trip dangers and uneven ground and the need to wear suitable footwear and clothes to suit the conditions.
Be sensible and safe. Take only photographs and leave only footprints.
