Photog3A

The website of Edinburgh U3A Photography Groups 1 and 2


What we do

Our object is to improve members' skills in picture composition and techniques. Because it is the picture that is important, it doesn't matter whether the camera used is simple or more advanced.

Each month members provide a few photographs on a subject chosen in advance. We then meet to examine the photographs, discuss their merits and learn a little of ways in which they might be improved. Occasionally, during the meeting we have a short session on a technical topic. See also our archive at the foot of this page.
