Our annual program includes some practical or interactive evenings which address a particular aspect of photography linked to a competition topic or perhaps a photographic visit. However some members may appreciate a few additional sessions on topics such as camera settings, photographic software, printing and mounting, etc. We have two ways to arrange this without incurring the extra expense of hiring the hall for what is likely to be a smaller group of members:-

 1) We have the use of a small side room on normal club nights where we can arrange one-to-one or small group sessions little earlier than the normal start time when club equipment such as laptops and projectors are not otherwise required. If you are interested, please ask or email Chris outlining what you would like to cover and he will be very happy to sort something out.

 2) For any topics that require more time and of interest to a larger number of people, Helen and Chris are happy to host a session or two near Buckhorn Weston where virtually everything can be to hand to tackle most questions, including of course a projector, laptop, Google/wifi, tea and coffee. As Buckhorn Weston is 8 miles, or 15 minutes by car along the A30, it would probably be best to meet during daylight hours, perhaps on a Saturday. So if there is interest in topics such as Photoshop, please let Chris know.

We should be able to address most topics, even if we have to do a bit of preparation first!  However Brian T has given us a list of some for either beginners or a more advanced level covering both digital cameras and computers.  You can find this under the Workshop menu above or click here.

From time to time, we also add a few notes to “Pixels”, our “virtual workshop” on the web so do take a look and remember suggestions for other topics are always very welcome.

You can always email Chris via or talk to him at the club.
