Some photographers to consider:

Themes for 2017

List of Camera Club Themes. 2017

 

We thought it would be useful to set out a whole year’s themes in advance.

We’ll still send a reminder every month, but this way you can keep future themes in mind when you make your photographic excursions.

 

January 12th Open (No set theme)
February 2nd Night Life
March 2nd Transformation
April 6th Reflection
May 4th Conflict / Protest
June 1st Sculpture / Sculptural
July 6th Lost and Found
August 3rd Happiness
September 7th The Thing Itself
October 5th Escape
November 2nd Paradox
December 7th Open (No set theme)

Spare themes (suggested but not yet scheduled):

Contrivance

Stillness

Discontinuity

The themes in heavy type are agreed. Other themes are provisional, but will be confirmed two months in advance. For example the May theme will be confirmed at the March meeting.

In general, there will not be an introductory talk, just general chat, and discussion of the images you bring along. Some months we might have a guest speaker. If so we’ll let you know in advance.
