How we challenge ourselves in the group…
Our Group decides on themes to expand our knowledge of the use of cameras and Photo editing software such as Photoshop Elements or other programs to create the best results.
We have decided that this year we will set monthly challenges and extract one to three photos from each month starting in September to put in the 2020 Digital Photography Calendar.
June 2019 – Transport
In June we all went out and tried to find the best pictures of Transport, this stretched us as we all found different types.
May 2019 – Bridges
Our May theme was Bridges of all kinds
April 2019 – New Life
In April we decided on a theme of New Life in all its aspects
March 2019 -Lighting and Still Life
We also set one of our alternate weeks sessions to explore lighting and photographing Still Life. We brought in various still life items and lighting equipment such as reflectors and lighting umbrellas and spent the afternoon trying different aspects of lighting with still life and faces.
March 2019 – Trees
I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree– as said by American poet Joyce Kilmer in 1913, so for our March challenge we chose to photograph Trees in all their forms. We hope we managed to get some lovely photos, enjoy!
February 2019 – Sunrise/Sunset
As at this time of the year you don’t have to get up too early or too late to see the Sunrise or Sunset, we decided to see what we could photo, some of our group went the extra mile to catch the best skys we could see.
January 2019 – Street Photography
In January we decided to try our luck at Street Photography, with a variety of styles and results.
