We run a regular series of events throughout the year. We try to cover a wide range of topics mixing more creative talks with ones concentrating on the more technical aspects.
All our events are open to non-RPS members and are usually held at Frodsham Community Centre close to Junction 12 on the M56.
We also have a 'Bring a Print' competition at each event. Just brig your best print, any size, mounted or unmounted and we ask our presenter to provide a critique and select a winner who receives a trophy.
The Art of Macro - Tony North DPAGB BPE3*
Tony will discuss the 7 challenges of macro photography & how to overcome them, including:
* getting close enough to take a shot
* achieving a fully sharp image
* creating a pleasing background
* composing a beautiful image
Along the way he will share his best images of insects in the field, as well as a few other small subjects.
I have been a wildlife photographer for many years, but also a travel photographer. A retired engineer, I enjoy the technicalities of image improvement and trying to get the most accurate images in his prints. I took over as the Organiser in 2016, having founded the group with Adrian Lines in 2015.
I've been an amateur photographer since my early 20s, mainly landscapes
but open to anything. I embraced digital in the early days, loving the
ability to process and manipulate images without special equipment.
I keep promising to try for my ARPS but so far haven't.
Along with Andrew I look after the web site and produce the meeting flyers.
Peter deals with the pre-event publicity emails and is the contact for collating the attendees and payments for events.
A life long photographer, my photographic interest could be described as 'most things' (although I'm not keen on portraiture). I do find myself drawn to more abstract work but that might be just a phase!
Currently struggling for a topic for my ARPS without much success.
Myself and John look after the DIG NW part of the website, preparing images, posting events and creating publicity.
