Welcome to the web site of 'Snappers'. We are self help group of photographers.
We welcome everyone - all ages, levels of experience and with no limits in terms of catchment area.
We don't claim to be experts, but we enjoy trying and learning together.
We meet at 1.30pm on the first Friday afternoon of each month. You are welcome to arrive a little earlier if you would like to have a chat with the leader of our group.
Members recently enjoyed a talk about infra-red and monochrome photography from John Whaler of Lincoln. He spoke about how he captures the former with a Nikon camera he had converted some years ago and gave examples of how to take monochrome shots using apps on an iPhone. We will see John again soon when he returns to judge our annual competition.
Our venue for hall-based meetings is: Beckingham Village Hall, Southfield Lane, Beckingham, Doncaster, DN10 4QA
Our next monthly meeting takes place on Friday December 1st when we will be having a practical session. Please bring something with a Christmas theme which can be photographed on a table top. Mini studios, backdrops, props and lights are encouraged as this is a sharing and learning session. Don't forget your camera and tripod.
Please check the web site before attending in case of last minute changes. They will be posted here if at all possible.
Photography Challenge Topic
In October we looked at images from the challenge: three shots of the same subject from different perspectives. Members' images appear in the Gallery on this site under October. We will not be setting another challenge for a few months because we have a practical session in December, the images from which will be shown in January, which will be followed by our competition in February.
If you are bringing digital rather than printed images to show at any time, please create one separate folder on your stick marked with the month they will be shown. If you are including two sets, please make one sub folder for each set and save your images to the relevant one. If you can find a way to mark your name on your stick, it would speed the loading process at the start. Thank you.
If anyone has any ideas for challenges or subjects for our afternoon meetings, please let John know or bring your suggestions to the meeting.
