February 2017 Meeting

February 2017 Meeting

The next meeting of the club will be on Thursday February 16th at 2pm at The Victoria Hall, Ash Hill Road, Ash at 2pm. We meet in the rear hall which is accessed through the door at the back of the car park. The talk will be about storing photos and the photo subject is black and white. New members of all abilities are very welcome. Contact Jane or Glyn Morgan for more details.

The January meeting was a great success with a talk about how to take photos in black and white but also how to convert colour photos. The various methods of doing this were shown and the members were surprised to find out how different techniques produce very different results.

We also looked at members' photos on the topic of 'Not Fond Of'. This proved to be tricky as most of us do not take photos of things we do not like. Some of the topics proved controversial and some were fun. Graffiti, fly tipping and rubbish generally were a common theme as shown by this photo taken by Peter Francis in a local car park.

Ash and District Photo Club

The Ash & District Photo Club is a self-help group aimed mainly at retired people who have an interest in any aspect of photography. Members from beginners to those with considerable experience are welcome. We meet monthly, during the afternoon, and divide our meeting into a few parts including a “how to do it” subject, a review of members pictures on a chosen theme and time for problems, gossip and show off.

For our “how to do it” subjects members are encouraged to give a short, informal talk on a subject in which they have an interest. Care is taken to balance these subjects across the range of experience in the club.

Each month we choose a subject for a picture review. Members are encouraged to take up to three photos of a subject chosen by the group at the previous meeting. At the following meeting the club will look at the results and talk about any issues or ideas that were found or used. These pictures do not have to be perfect. This is not a competition and presenting one that went wrong could provide as much useful knowledge to the group as a perfect one. Last year we certainly had fun looking at our pictures on subjects that included; Still Life, Round, Mystery Object or Place, Black and White, and Movement.

Once a year we hold a competition

We meet on the third Thursday of each month from 2-4pm in the rear hall at The Victoria Hall, Ash Hill Road Ash, GU12 5DN. We are a very friendly group and would love to welcome some new members. Please get in touch if you would like more information.
