Welcome to PhotoSoc! In this society we have talks from guest photographers, exhibitions, competitions, trips, photowalks around Galway, darkroom classes and various workshops. We will cover the basic camera settings and have photographers who are experts in their fields come in to explain the techniques they use.
I don't have a good camera...?"
It doesn't matter, you can borrow a camera from us and learn what to look our for when buying a camera. You could pick up a cheap second hand film camera, you could then try developing the photos yourself in the darkroom! We will even be making our own cameras this year using recycled materials...! Or ask us about cheap and good websites to buy second hand DLSR's off of.
"I got a really nice camera, but it's always left on Auto"
Well it's time to unleash the potential of your camera and start exploring what the different modes and settings do! We will have professional photographers in to go through the settings or other more experienced photographers are always happy to go through the settings on your camera. You will also learn all about the manual setting on your camera by trial and error and asking us questions when we're out taking photos.
