May’s Photography Club meet was a little different this time with something new to challenge us.
This map of Colchester was enlarged and printed so that each of the groups could randomly place a pin and choose their destination for the evening. No peeking aloud! The Clubgoers who were in 4 groups headed to their ‘spot’.
The idea was to stand in that spot and look for photographic opportunities around you. So often we can think that there’s nothing to photograph, but there are always opportunities…you just have to look for them! Some groups were lucky enough to choose picturesque parts where others had loading bays and the less ‘pretty’ end of town!
We were blessed with a beautiful warm evening, quite hard to believe it now! The groups headed back for a cuppa and our techy guru Josh uploaded some images from each of the groups so that we could have a short slideshow at the end of the evening. It was fun to see the photographs and also for the groups to each guess where the locations were. Here are some of the photographs taken on the evening:

Altogether a very successful first attempt at ‘On the Spot’ which will no doubt be repeated again in the future.
June’s Photography Club meets on Thursday 9th June at the Quaker Meeting House. This month we have Brendan Wilson, Street Photographer, coming along. He’ll talk to us about his Street Photography techniques and then we’ll be going out and about in the town for a practical session. We meet at 7pm and we will be prompt so don’t be late!
Thanks for reading.
