THE Myall University of the Third Age (U3A) Photography Group has geared up for a big year with keen members taking advantage of one of Australia’s most photogenic regions, the Myall Coast, to shoot in accordance with a set topic each month.

This month’s topic was “Shoot the Sunset” with the top shot by Malcolm Michael.

Last year, the Myall U3A Photography group had to operate safely online, sharing topics and photos whilst complying with COVID-19 guidelines.

This year they are meeting again, with the first 2021 meeting scheduled 2.30pm on 11 February, at the Hawks Nest Community Centre.

Social distancing and COVID-19 safe operating practices remain in place and the Centre hall will be disinfected in accordance with Government requirements and the protocols laid down by the U3A National Body.

Spokesperson and co-convenor for the Photography Group, Philip Dowling, told News Of The Area, “We are all looking forward to 2021.

“Our Group comprises members with all levels of photographic interest and expertise.

“We use all sorts of cameras from sophisticated cameras through to point and shoot, and mobile phone cameras.

“We have experienced members but also many learners who benefit from our regular tutorial meetings.

“New members can join to improve their photos, often holiday shots that can be improved with some knowledge of photography.

“We are not a highly competitive photography group like some.

“Rather we share a common interest in photography as a hobby or to capture images of our holidays or families.

“We all share a desire to learn more about photography to improve our photographs.

“This year presents many opportunities for group activities and photo shoots.”
