Please note – due to the Covid-19 Pandemic – Outings and Workshops will be postponed until further notice.

INNINGS

We have supplements our ‘Outings’ with a new and fun way of encouraging our members to continue with their Photography – in accordance with Lockdown regulations and staying home – by starting the ‘Innings’ category.

We meet via Zoom every Friday evening to discuss a topic and are given the task of taking photos according to the theme or topic.

This has been met with great enthusiasm from our members, as it has challenged everyone to ‘think outside the box’ – becoming more creative with their photography skills and growing as a photographer.

If you would like to join our Friday evening ‘Innings’ meetings, please contact us for more information.
