Aperture Photography Group
Learn, Improve & Share
The Aperture Photography Group (APG) was formed in 2016 with aim of providing a new type of photography group, a non-competitive environment where photographers could come together to learn, improve and share their interest in photography.
Many of the founding members had belonged to traditional camera clubs and had become tired of the speaker/competition/battle format and wanted to offer something new. We believe we have found the right formula and with a steadily growing membership we have been amazed by the improvement in our work.
Apart from fortnightly meetings which include talks by professional photographers, we run online sessions looking at post processing, how to understand pictures and special interest groups. We also organise training sessions, photographic outings, workshops away, mentoring sessions and photo assignments to help you develop your photographic skills.
If you are interested in developing your photography and would like to find out more, then why not come along to one of our meetings as our guest. Meet the members, see what we are doing and, if you like what you see, join the Aperture Photography Group.
Our next meeting is on Thursday 28th October at 8pm, when we will be having not one, but two 'Portfolio Reviews'. We will be sharing 10 images each by two of our most experienced members: Christine Phillips and Graham Heywood. This will be a great evening for discussing their work, how it was created and how it can in
Talking Pictures is a new monthly discussion group which has its next session on Monday 1st November at 8pm. The purpose of Talking Pictures is to understand how to see, compose and previsualise better images. This time Clare and Neil will be looking at woodland photography.
Our next Livestream is on Monday 8th November at 8pm. This monthly post processing session is free to join for our members and each session will last an hour or thereabouts. This time we will looking at how to add mood into your images in post processing using colour.
Our next Altered Reality Group meeting will be on 2nd December at 8pm when we will be looking at minimalism in photography with a presentation on the work of photographer Michael Kenna and a discussion on how to make minimalist images.
