MEETING 16.09.21

Robert Harvey delivered his presentation entitled “Photographing Wiltshire”.  It was a very interesting and informative talk, illustrated with great photographs of Wiltshire, both of well known and less familiar sites.  It was a great stimulus for ideas of places to visit.


 Robert advised the links below which may be of interest:


  • He invited members to join his Facebook group Inspirational Outdoor Photography.  The group only accepts images from the British Isles taken within the last seven days, so it is focused on what is happening in the countryside now: www.facebook.com/groups/InspirationalOutdoorPix



The next club meeting is on 30th September.  The meeting will cover the following:

  • Julia - Shetland
  • Challenge - split toning/colour grading - one picture -  before and after
  • Shoot review - Atwell-Wilson Car Museum

MEETING 02.08.21

It was great to be meeting up again, the first time in the Manor Room since March 2020. We welcomed back our members, both old and new.  Advice to make our meetings Covid-compliant was discussed, seats were socially distanced and coats were kept on as doors were left open to allow air circulation.  

We started our new term with reviews of the challenge 'Our favourite images' taken during the 2020-2021 year and the first of our summer shoots 'Lacock River Walk'.  While our own selection processes were challenged by the first, finding interesting subjects for the second proved tricky! Below is a small selection.
