There were some fabulous colours, with leaves and fungi being prominent, as members of Atworth Camera Club displayed their “Images of Autumn” at their meeting on Monday 27th November.
There was a good turn out and most members had a number of images to show, covering a broad range of subjects, These mostly adhered to the autumn theme, including some taken on a recent club outing to Westonbirt.
As ever the meeting was hosted by Jim Marsden, who had recently had a big birthday and had brought along some of the leftover cakes and a couple of bottles of bubbly. This was opportune for Julia Lavery, who runs the newly-formed Melksham Amateur Photographers’ Group, who had joined us to forge new friendships and see how our club operates.
The club meets on the last Monday of each month at 7.30pm, but it was thought unlikely many would turn up on December 25th, so this was the last meeting of the year. The programme resumes in the New Year as follows: January 29th – Lighting for Portraits; February 26th – Visiting lecture/talk; March 26th – Members to show their project pictures.
The club project for the winter season is Street Photography. This coming year we are also planning a calendar project to run throughout the year, featuring pictures taken in Atworth parish.
Following last year’s success, we are planning another annual exhibition, which is pencilled in for May.
If you want to meet with other people, to discuss and share your photographic hobby, whether you are a raw beginner looking for advice and guidance, or are highly experienced and enjoy helping others, you will find things to interest you. So why not join us in the Atworth Village Hall & Institute – there is no annual membership fee, just a meeting fee of £2, which includes coffee/tea and biscuits (but not usually bubbly and cakes!).
