Welcome to the web site of 'Snappers'. We are self help group of photographers.
We welcome everyone - all ages, levels of experience and with no limits in terms of catchment area.
We don't claim to be experts, but we enjoy trying and learning together. We have been pleased to welcome several new members recently and numbers at meetings average around 26 these days.
We meet at 1.30pm on the first Friday afternoon of each month. You are welcome to arrive a little earlier if you would like to have a chat with the leader of our group.
Members recently enjoyed taking part in our annual competition. We had a great turn out and a very good entry of 18 sets of prints for our judge, John Whaler, to work through. The winner was Sue Cross, who has been a member for just one year. For more information please click here to go to the competition page.
Our venue for hall-based meetings is: Beckingham Village Hall, Southfield Lane, Beckingham, Doncaster, DN10 4QA
Our next monthly meeting takes place Friday March 1st when we will be having another of our popular practical sessions. We need you to bring displays to photograph on a table top as well as any lights, backgrounds, drapes or mini studios you think might be useful. Everyone can photograph any of the displays and as it is a very informal afternoon, it is a great opportunity to ask questions of more experienced members.
Please check the web site before attending in case of last minute changes. They will be posted here if at all possible.
Photography Challenge Topic
There is no new challenge for the meeting in March, as the whole afternoon will be devoted to the practical session. The new challenge for April will be 'Reflections - but think outside the box'. What could you find that might give you an interesting reflection to photograph? You might like to bring some ideas along to the tabletop session to try them out.
If you are bringing digital rather than printed images to show at any time, please create one separate folder on your stick marked with the month they will be shown. If you are including two sets, please make one sub folder for each set and save your images to the relevant one. If you can find a way to mark your name on your stick, it would speed the loading process at the start. Thank you.
If anyone has any ideas for challenges or subjects for our afternoon meetings, please let John know or bring your suggestions to the meeting.
