Photography

The club welcomes all abilities of individuals and meets on the second Tuesday of each month at Café Unity, in Heald Green.
At the meetings we discuss and try and resolve each others’ photographic problems, as well as talks on various photographic issues.
We also have a monthly field trip to take photographs as a group within the Greater Manchester area, to improve our photographic talents and to put into practice techniques we have learned at the monthly meetings.
Each member posts a number of their photos taken on field trips on Facebook page U3ACH Photo Club; for all to see and comment. Please feel free to visit the page and view our efforts on previous trips.
Trips are planned on a monthly basis for the forthcoming month.
The cost is of each meeting at Café Unity is £3 per session (to cover room hire), paid to the café at their till. Tea and coffee can be purchased and taken upstairs before we start, if you wish, or during the meeting.
Come and join us. No prior appointment is required.
To join us, please contact the Group Leader, Neil Rackham, for details of the next meeting.

Our next photo morning out is to the Stockport air raid shelters to cover night time and flash photography.
