Next meeting:

The next meeting of pictureNow is 2 July, 7 p.m. at the Horse & Groom pub, Roxwell Road (A1060), Writtle.

As you might guess from the venue it’s an informal conversational-style meeting simply to talk about photographs, share info. on forthcoming exhibitions, trips we may make, or if you have a query about your camera then let us know.
You are welcome to bring some of your own images or examples of others’ that have impressed you or made you curious in some way (though bear in mind it’s a pub with food and drink on the table).

Also, keep posting your black and white images onto our Flickr Group page as we will be selecting photos for our forthcoming exhibition at the Civic Theatre in July.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Next meeting: Monday 4th June

We are continuing with our theme of ‘black and white’ photography, with the chance of exhibiting our work later on in the year.

We’ll meet at Writtle University College as usual except that our normal room won’t be available, so please bring your camera so that we can photograph around the grounds in black & white, whatever the weather throws at us! We’ll set off from the door of Studio 2 at 7pm.

Next exhibition

We will be holding an exhibition of black & white photographs in the autumn at Anglia Ruskin University’s Riverside Gallery. If you would like to be part of this we’ll be going into more details in the future. Meanwhile, you can upload images to the pictureNow group site on Flickr. There are already some great b&w images there so do take a look and feel encouraged to have a go.

The future of pictureNow

Attendance at our meetings is dwindling and we (Tracy and Malcolm) are unhappy with the format of the meetings. It is not the group that we envisaged when we started and we want to return to our original idea of a discussion group about the photographic image, which we feel we have drifted away from. So Monday 4 June will be our last formal meeting. After that we will meet informally at roughly monthly intervals. The venue will probably be a pub in the Chelmsford area. We’ll let you know via the Newsletter (subscribe here), the Web site and Facebook when and where the next meeting will be and if you fancy coming along for a photographic conflab you’ll be very welcome.

We look forward to seeing you in the future!

Tracy and Malcolm
