Peterborough Photographic Society

Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month from September through June.  The meetings are normally conducted in two parts.  During the first part, presentations by experienced photographers whether club members or professionals are the main activity.  Following a break for refreshments and socializing, the second part of the meeting is devoted to the showing of members’ images.  There is a monthly “Theme”, a “Photographer’s Choice” and an “Outings” category.  Members are encouraged to submit in all categories as this is seen as a valuable learning experience. For those who are eager to learn there is also a Critique session in which images will be analyzed and appraised.  Comments are made as to composition, technique and impact.

Part of the May meeting is reserved for the Annual General Meeting.

They are held at the Lion’s Club Centre located at 347 Burnham Street, start at 7:00 p.m. and end by 9:30 p.m.  If you arrive earlier you may have the opportunity to ask other members questions about camera bodies, lenses or software for editing images.

Twice a month members have an opportunity to get together at a selected venue to photograph subjects of interest.  These outings are diverse and might vary from photographing flowers at a garden centre to photographic scavenger hunts.  They provide members with an opportunity to get out and take some pictures, as well as a chance to learn from other photographers.  The outings are announced at the meetings and in the newsletter as well as the website and on Facebook.
