We are a friendly group with varied experience and knowledge of photography, whose equipment varies from small point and shoot cameras to full digital SLRs.

Our aim is to enjoy taking photographs whilst learning to get the best from our cameras and improving the pictures we take both in camera and afterwards.

A monthly subject is set for members to photograph either in their own time or on a group outing.  Digital images are reviewed on screen with members discussing why and how they were taken and how they could be improved.

Subjects covered have included: -

Retford, Flora and Fauna,  Shadows, Trees, Buildings, Weather, People,  Christmas,  Transport,  Spring Flowers, Action, Faces,  Holiday Memories, Skies,  Spring/Easter, Textures, Timepieces, Doors, Past its Best, Food and simple Photoshop enhancements.

Recent Visits have been made to, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Doddington Hall Sculpture Exhibition, Newark Air Museum and Southwell.
