Photography Group

The Photography Group meets on the 4th Thursday of each month between 2:00 pm and 4:30 pm in the Village Hall, Station Road, Balsall Common CV7 7FF. Members contribute £2 per meeting to cover the costs including hire of the hall, refreshments, external judges and speakers.

Our aim is to enjoy, through self-help learning principles, opportunities to improve our photographic skills by sharing members’ interests, skills and experiences. These include “seeing” and “composing” the picture, taking it correctly using whatever camera you own (be it “state of the art” or “point and shoot”) and the production of images (digital or print).

Each month we hold a themed photographic competition where prints and projected images are assessed either by group members or a visiting judge.

Every six months we have an exhibition of members’ photos at the core meeting and then in Balsall Common Library. Members’ photos can also be seen in “The Bugle.”

After refreshments there could be a talk on some photographic skill or a “hands on” workshop. Most months a field trip is arranged to take photos on a theme and learn from each other. These images are shown and compared at the next meeting.

This September, instead of the usual monthly meeting, an Away day has been arranged to the Black Country Living Museum.

If you are interested, please come along to one of our meetings where you will be warmly welcomed.
