This group meets once a month. We hope to share our knowledge of cameras and their settings, and hope take better photos without necessarily relying on basic ‘point-and-shoot’ photography.

Venue and Time: We meet on the third Wednesday of the month at Swinton Gateway, community room 3, and sometimes we are out on a photoshoot. As a regular item, members bring in photos (usually on a memory stick) for discussion, often after a specific topic/project has been covered. As ever, our programme is developed as we go along, so the 2018 will probably be similar to 2017.
