Photography

The important bit!

The Photography Group meets twice monthly on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 10 am.  We meet at various venues, but while COVID restrictions are in place, meetings are suspended.  Please remember to check the Calendar in case of any late changes to schedule.

Our group is led by Stewart Lane, and he may be contacted at 01643 707763, or by email at photography@minehead-district-u3a.org.uk

Sunset of our freedom

Since the start of the COVID lockdown, in March, the U3A Photographic group has focussed the usage of their cameras on having a shot at producing varied photographs, based on a new subject, posed each successive month.  The results were then edited and redistributed, via email, to all members of the group.  Projection in this way has enabled the exposure of members’ prints, which otherwise would have stayed in the (virtual) darkroom.  We feel that this method of image distribution lens(!) itself perfectly to the restrictions under which we are all suffering.  The photograph above epitomises the sunset of our freedom under the present limitations.

2021

The subjects of our monthly challenges have been:

June – The Littoral zone
May – Spring flowers
April – Still life in monochrome

March – Members’ “best ever”
February – Nature’s colours in January
January – A different Christmas
