Happy New Year!

Some of our members have already been busy, with a windy walk in the sunshine to Hardley Mill. It was good to blow away the cobwebs and see some brightness at last.

Thanks to David Keep for keeping us entertained at our last meeting.

Whilst few of us (if any) will take up SCUBA diving and underwater photography, David’s talk was excellent and very entertaining. You can see more of his photos here.

Out of this world!

Thanks to Shaun Reynolds for introducing us to Milky Way photography at our last meeting. He covered everything from looking at Stellarium to find which way to look, all the camera settings you would need, and how to process your files afterwards to get the most from your shots. Superb!

Thanks to Chris Bell

We had a fascinating talk from Chris Bell on the subject of weather and storm chasing. Thankfully our weather (in spite of the recent storms) is nothing compared to where Chris was born in Texas USA where hurricanes and tornados are frequent. Follow Chris here on Twitter.

Give a Child a Camera

During our exhibition at the start of November, we collected cameras to donate to the charity Give a Child a Camera.
Setup in 2015 by local photographer Julian Claxton, Give a Child a Camera empowers young Ugandan children to tell a story of their life through photography. We received digital and film cameras, some new, some very old. Thank you to all who donated!
