Digital Photography Group – Advanced

This is for more advanced members or those who have attended the above group.

This is also a joint activity between the U3As of Cardigan and Teifi Side (based in Newcastle Emlyn).

This group meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at the Coracle Hall in Llechryd.

The work is of a more practical nature, where group members go out on trips and under the guidance of an experienced photographer take pictures.

Members then have the opportunity to review each others’ pictures.
