Learn, Improve & Share
The Aperture Photography Group (APG) was formed in 2016 with aim of providing a non-competitive environment where photographers could come together to learn, improve and share their interest in photography.
The founding members had all belonged to other 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, we organise talks by professional photographers, training courses, photographic outings, workshops away, mentoring sessions and photo assignments to help you develop your photographic skills.
If you are interested in finding 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.
Tonight we have a talk from APG co-founder Neil Phillips. With lockdown hopefully coming to an end, we are all looking forward to getting out and making new images with our camera. Neil's talk will focus on travel photography and be illustrated with images taken in Italy.
We have been expanding our online store, so why not drop in, have a browse and if you decide to buy something, Amazon will happily donate something to our funds.
On Monday 12th April, we will hold our second monthly post processing Livestream. It is free to join for our members and each session will last an hour. This time we will be looking at how to get a consistent look and feel across a series of images and how to remove noise from photos.
The next meeting of our Altered Reality special interest group will take place on Tuesday 27th April at 8pm. This time we will be looking at creating composite images with Clare Acford FRPS and exploring the work of surrealist artist Rene Magritte.
We have an exciting programme for the first half of 2021 with lots of great guest speakers booked, including: Sue Bishop, Dean Allan and James Kirwin. We also have talks by APG members, including talks by Clare Acford on compiling a panel of images and Neil Phillips on travel photography.
Our next photo assignment will see our members making images on the theme of 'film or book titles'. Each group member can submit two JPEG images and entries close on 27th May. The review will take place at our meeting on 10th June.
