i also found a camera club not so far from me they meet on Wednesdays Sep to April so i might go along for a week or two and see how i get on
I do hope you do this, Ann......I'm sure you'll get a lot of enjoyment from it.
Your local club seems to operate much as mine does i.e. Sep to April.
Ours has about 100+ members at present, and seems to expand by between 2 & 4 members each week. Anyone can visit free for 2 sessions to see if they like it, then expected to join or otherwise.
We meet once a week (Mondays 7.30pm/10pm), activities are varied, including competition nights (monthly), speakers nights and group sessions. For the latter we split into various groups of about 10 members to learn about techniques involved with macro photography, landscapes, portraits and so on......next week I have two sessions, portraits & filters.
There are also outside activities……earlier this month a visit was arranged to visit a bird of prey sanctuary, which (although I didn’t attend) understand offered the opportunity to take some great bird action shots…..all with assistance of course.
Perhaps what may interest you, are other group nights where members bring in their own cameras and all the settings are gone into in depth.
