Photographic Society April 2022 AGM
It has been a few months since we have been meeting at The Adderbury Institute, so it was great to hold an AGM that wasn’t on Zoom. The usual formalities were observed, and the Committee were voted in for another year.
It is always great to welcome visitors who might want to become members so here are some of the things we get up to. We hold a presentation evening on the first Wednesday of the month where we have a guest speaker. During the evening there is also a time to look at members’ images submitted to fit a topic title; next month is ‘Show an emotion’. Our AGM gave us an opportunity to show our three favourite images from the last year. The variety of shots was impressive, and it was encouraging to see members submitting picture that were not necessary their usual style, but they all had a special meaning.
As a society we also venture out on photoshoots; in the last year we have visited bluebell woods, Broughton Castle, and the National Memorial Arboretum to name but a few. We are looking forward to a future visit to Slimbridge Wetland Centre.
Membership also includes workshop evenings that have included technical sessions on depth of field, macro focus stacking and a session on lighting with a model. The Society aims to add to skills and improve techniques in a fun and non-competitive atmosphere.
So, all you budding or established photographers why not join us one month and see if it might be a hobby you could develop. (Pun intended) You don’t need lots of expensive equipment, phones these days take splendid images.
Our next speaker will be Steve Williams about photographing sport on Wednesday 4th May at 7.30pm at The Adderbury Institute. Do check our website for more details.
