The Digi-cam technology has unloosened the image, letting it loose from the bonds of darkrooms and photo albums, and into a new world with bright digital screen. Craig Farrish told that everyone is taking photographs but a lot of photography is going towards selfies, the idea of this camera club is to promote photography as an art.
It was around three months ago that Farrish started Amherst Camera Club. They meet just one time in a month at the Cumberland North Academy. At a recent meeting, the group concentrated on nature photography, with the group sharing snaps of flowers, trees, birds as well as other wildlife they had taken.
Farrish told that clicking a magnificent image does not require the best camera equipment. You could capture stunning images with a basic point and shoot shooter. Back in August, Farrish moved to Amherst from Kingston with his family.
He said that he used to be a member to a camera club located in Kingston. It is a great way to meet people with same interests and it is a great scope to re-kindle his creative side. The photographic theme of last month was nature and the theme for this month is sports photography.
Around ten people are currently active in this club, but Farrish expects that this number would go up very soon. People would take snaps at sporting events, and after that they would come out and show their photos to the group. He would prefer people to come out and develop an appreciation for photography.
Young photography enthusiasts are all thrilled for the new St John’s Library photography competition. The contest is open to thirteen and nineteen year old Worcestershire library members.

Library customer advisor Gill Robinson told that they are very keen to encourage more thirteen and nineteen year old youngsters to use all the library service. They are also expecting to see more teens in the library because of this contest.
