Summer shoot 3: Thursday 4 August 2016

Our third photoshoot will be at Avebury.  Meet the contact, Philip Male, 7pm at the Red Lion, Avebury.  Please note that the National Trust Car Park is not open evenings so parking will have to be found in the village.  Please car share where possible.

As for our second photoshoot - despite a week of fine summer weather, we are getting very good at picking the only evening with challenging light, plus rain on this occasion!  Nevertheless, there were ten of us wandering through the backstreets and riverside of Chippenham, juggling weather protection for ourselves and our cameras as well as taking a shot or two.

Some found small details to concentrate on or the unusual while others experimented with capturing movement of canoeists and walkers before a thirst-quenching drink at the Angel Hotel......

Summer shoot 2: Thursday 21 July 2016

Our next destination - meet David Sage at the Buttercross, Chippenham at 7pm. 

Our first summer trek was around the river and canal area at Bradford-on-Avon.  The light was disappointing with a wall-to-wall grey skies but nonetheless 5 of us had a go, seeing a kingfisher, waterrat or vole?, a few canoeists, boaters and runners en route.  The grey weather beat us in the end but a gentle stroll with a few clicks here and there was enjoyed by all.
