We are a group of like-minded SPArkles members who are learning about photography together. We want to learn how to take those photos that we have admired and never been able to achieve.

Everyone is very welcome. You don't have to have a fancy camera - some of the settings are also available on mobile phones.

We aim to hold monthly meetings as well as some outings where we can put the theory into practice. Even if you don't want to come to the meetings, you are very welcome to join us for the outings.

This group is having a temporary break from meetings - please watch this space ...
The inaugural meeting of the 'Photography for Fun' SPArkles WI group

Monthly and annual photography competition

At each monthly SPArkles WI meeting there is a photography competition with a specified theme. SPArkles members vote for the photograph that they like the best and those in 1st, 2nd or 3rd places gain points. These are accumulated over the year, with a trophy given to the winner.
