The Group will be restarting using Zoom on 3 February 2021 and welcomes new members.
The Photographers and Photography Group is aimed at enthusiastic photographers who would like to improve their skills, learning about and from world renowned photographers e.g Cartier Bresson, Ansel Adams, Steve McCurry, Martin Parr, etc.
The focus of the Group will be on photographs that tell stories – or narrative photography – looking at all styles; street, travel, fashion, portraiture, social commentary, and the ways photographers in these genres invite the viewers into the picture, to ask questions, to make a statement, to challenge. We will look at different techniques – cropping, composition, lighting, styling, capturing emotion, the rule of thirds, B&W v Colour, post-processing etc.
Members will research images and photographers and then discuss how their photographs are constructed, styled, cropped etc to understand their strength.
The Group will venture out together to single destinations and put ideas into practice and share images in follow up meetings.
