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.

On Tuesday 13th November we had our annual visit from David Chapman who gave a great talk on landscape photography. He is always so informative and interesting to listen to. He gave us lots of tips on using filters, settings and composition and showed us photos to illustrate the differences.  His own photos are beautiful and he is a relaxed and amusing speaker. Please note we have already booked him for next year!
The results of the annual competition will be announced at our  11 December meeting, following which we will have our Christmas meal at the Carnon Inn. Our first January meeting on the 8th will start our new programme which will be available shortly on our webpage.

On 9th October we had a very interesting presentation by Roy Macbryde called "Cornwall From the Air". Roy has walked the whole 600 hundred odd miles of the Cornish Coastal Path and had many of his own photographs of it but he linked it to aerial photos of the coast and places and aircraft involved in flying in the past, from RNAS Culdrose especially. It certainly gave a different perspective to us all.
Next session 23 Oct will be on RAW images. A reminder that this will be the last chance to  submit competition entries.
On 13 November we welcome David Chapman again. His presentations and superb photographs of wildlife are always fascinating and amusing and we learn so much both of nature and how to take good photos of it.
27 November will be a member's meeting and the monthly subject will be "We Remember". Members are asked to bring in any War memorabilia and photos to spark conversation.
The 11th December is the last meeting for 2018 when we shall have the results of the Annual Competition together with the judge's comments on each entry. After the presentation of the prizes we will adjourn to the Carnon Inn for our Christmas lunch.
First meeting for 2019 is 8th January.

Don't forget the Competition entries. The entry deadline has been extended to the end of October.  The subject is Cornish Villages and for full rules click here All U3A members can enter.
