We learn much from each other and each year the club sets up some challenges focused on some particular aspect of photography. These challenges involve a club member researching the topic and giving a short presentation on what they have found to other members. We then apply the learning and return a month later with our attempts at the challenge. Sometimes we succeed and sometimes not but we always learn something.
This coming Year
We have two Challenges. On the 9th January 2019 on the subject "Marco Photography" and using Depth of Field. In March the Challenge is "Daytime and Nightime Sports Photography."

Reflections also can be created in lots of surfaces too mirrors, Windows, water, puddles etc so our challenge is to try and create a few images of both shadows and reflections.
