Meetings of the Photography Group take place in the Jubilee Room at Bredon Village Hall every first Tuesday of each month between 2-4pm. There we enjoy each other’s photographs and offer constructive advice on how they could be improved.
We operate by identifying 12 topics, or themes for each month just before a new year. This gives us time to compose or select from our archives up to a dozen photographs per member. During the meeting, we take turns to show them using a projector and screen, and the rest of the group make comments. Members bring their photographs to the Village Hall downloaded to a USB memory stick or SD card. Often the discussion is more about the subject or location rather than pure technical merits. We also encourage a few “off topic” photos taken recently that we think the group would enjoy.
Additional time may be given to discussion as to how to get the best out of our cameras, as well as having the occasional workshop topic of a more ‘hands on’ nature, or visits to photogenic locations. A group walk around Tewkesbury last year was an enjoyable and beneficial experience.
