Photography Group - The Shutterists

We are a friendly group of keen photographers with an un-written modus operandi of ‘For fun’
 

The Shutterist Group allows all camera types, DSLR, Compacts, Mirrorless, Film, Phones, Pin Hole, Box Brownie, etc... However even though we are predominantly the WMS Photographic Group, cameras are not a pre-requisite for trips out, the Shutterists welcome all fellow members of WMS to enjoy our planned visits. For example, one of our keen members is more into Art, than photography, and will attend outings with his charcoal and sketch pad
 

The group’s focus is;

1.   Regular Group outings to photogenic places within East Anglia

2.   Learning and improving our own camera handling

3.   Learning to ‘enhance our photographs’ with minor adjustments in Photoshop

4.   Taking part in a monthly Photograph Challenge

Of course, all the above are voluntary, pick and mix as you wish

 

After ‘Shutterist Outings’ a competition will be held for the best photograph of the day. The Winner will receive ‘The Terry Knight Photo Group Trophy’. The Winner retains this Trophy untill the next outing at which time a new Winner will be announced and the Trophy is passed on accordingly

 

The Trophy is awarded in tribute to Terry Knight, one of our original photo group members who sadly passed away in 2019.

 

Shutterist Outings  generally take in a coffee, food and even the odd beer – it’s a social trip as much as a photographic one and we all share friendly banter

 

Whereas The monthly Photographic Challenge maybe for the more committed photographers. The monthly challenge is based on a title given at the start of each month by the challenge creator.

WMS Artistic Talent to submit their entry(s) by no later than the 3rd of every month.

 

Photographers:

Entry(s) can be one colour and / or one black & white – can be different photo or same.

 

Other mediums:

WMS artistic talent (in other ‘Art Forms’ such as charcoal sketch, water-colour, acrylic, pottery etc…) choose your medium and enter accordingly.

All members of the Shutterists, whether entered that month or not, get six votes and choose their favourite three entries. Awarding Gold (3 points), Silver (2 Points) and Bronze (1 Point).

Voting closes by the 7th of said month.

 

Each month the next challenge title will be released.

Entry should be taken or made in that previous month.

 Remember though - It’s for fun... but it is a challenge. 

If any of the above is of interest, or you have any questions, come see us at the SHED

Shutterists Photo Walk
"After the disappointment of not having any trips out during December and January the intrepid Shutterists are eagerly looking forward to an evening visit to Kings Lynn Mart on 21st February. The Mart is an excellent opportunity to hone their photographic skills by taking low light long exposure photographs capturing the energy and colours of a modern fairground. During our visit we will also take an opportunity to regroup in a nearby hostelry and partake in the available bill of fare. All in all, it should be a really good evening.”
