Our Society (Walsall Photographic Society) was founded in 1892 and has been closely linked with Walsall for an astounding 125 years.
We are a fairly small informal friendly group sharing an interest in all aspects of photography.
Our activities mentioned in the previous handbook have continued to evolve and the emphasis on practical work has been very much appreciated. This year we intend to extend this with the introduction of workshops on PhotoShop and Lightroom. As before we also have well known and respected photographers coming to show us their work and share their knowledge.
As well as the "buddy" system where experienced members link up with less experienced members to develop their skills, there are groups of members interested in photographing different things such as sport, wildlife and nature who meet outside the normal meetings on an informal basis.
The Society has increased its visibility outside with our continuing success in MidPhot and our participation in outside venues such as Compton Verney. Exhibiting our work in the foyer of the Forest Arts Centre has also made the public more aware our activities.
The new season starts on September 7th where we aim to show some of the work of the Society and give newcomers the chance to chat with us and ask any questions they might have with a view to joining us.
Everyone is always welcome no matter how experienced or inexperienced or what camera they use be it the latest DSLR or a compact "holiday" camera.
Our season runs from September to June with meetings starting at 7:30pm. We meet. Our season runs from September to June with meetings starting at 7:30pm.
