We are a small club of keen photographers, based in Warrington, Cheshire UK, who all want to improve our skills behind the Camera Lens. Modern digital cameras are portrayed in glossy adverts and shops as cheap, simple, easy to operate (just 'point and shoot') showing wonderful vibrant pictures that have pin sharp focusing and lovely composition. We enjoy those sorts of pictures and want to be more able, and skilled enough, to get close to that standard.
For some people, the reality of a new camera is nothing like those glossy adverts, the digital camera just becomes the means for taking a lot more poor pictures quicker and cheaper! If you want more than poor pictures from your camera, then we can help point you in the right direction. If you find you want to learn more, then please come back and join us!
We are not 'Camera Snobs' who insist you should have the latest and more expensive cameras. It's the brain and the eye behind the camera that can make the biggest difference. Understand your camera, know how it works, it's limitations, and how to compose photographs, and the results will be extremely pleasing. For that reason, we run a varied program throughout the year that includes lectures, practical sessions, social nights, competitions and many other activities.
Don't be put off by the thought of 'competitions', it's not mandatory to enter them! However, you can learn a lot from the photos submitted, hear the judges (constructive) comments, and learn from those for your own benefit. So, sit back and just look at the submitted pictures and after a while, you start to think "I understand what they are saying and I could take a photo like that". You've really got the bug then!
So, please browse around the web site and feel free to contact us using the "Contact Us" page from the Menu on the left and we hope to hear from you soon.
