Workshops to Restart. Photography Challenge 2021

YELLOW LIGHT to begin our 6-people-strong workshops again. Latest update and League Table from the Photography Challenge 2021.

YELLOW LIGHT to begin our 6-people-strong workshops again.

News: We have got the yellow light (go ahead but with Covid-19 precautions) to start our workshops once again. Each will be designed for six people only. Note: Photo Dave Hook.

Initially (until mid-May when we can use indoors again), these will be OUTDOOR events; demonstrations, photo walks and other photography opportunities. We plan to use Wednesday evenings at 7pm at the Haven Arms (outdoor meet-ups only) as our club nights again. But we can use other times and days to organise socially distanced events subject to the demand from members. We will of course be guided by the weather when holding outdoor events.

We have organised and run two workshops to date via our Facebook page, one on Lens Ball photography, and a second with a water theme. Both were successful – and fun!

We now invite you to express a general interest in attending workshops at our email viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk and please do suggest your ideas for subjects and themes you would like to see us tackle.

Workshops will be organised in advance and each group will be limited to six people. Booking will be essential once again. Keep an eye on the website for further information.
