Most people have the use of a camera, whether it's a feature of their phone, a compact or a digital SLR. It's also easy to convert your photos to prints, either using High Street photolabs, or at home with free or cheap software. Never before has photography been so popular and accessible. Sharing your photographs with friends is enjoyable and can lead to a new appreciation of what makes a good image, and the various techniques that can be used to improve your skills. This can range from hints about composing the picture before you take it, what the buttons on the camera actually do, and how to get the best out of your software.
Abingdon Camera Club (ACC) has been going for more than 30 years. We have a published programme of events featuring a range of activities to give variety and interest to members, whatever stage or level of skill they are at. These include:
evenings when members or guest speakers show and talk about their pictures;
practical evenings to improve your photographic skills and techniques;
sessions on how to use software to improve the final picture;
trips out to take pictures at a particular venue;
and various competitions, digital or prints, which you can enter if you want to.
