Summer School

For the past four years, Willie Wilson with the support of Steve Carne has organised and run a very successful summer school on behalf of PPC which runs every other week from May through to August. The aims of the school are to increase member dexterity with all aspects of the camera including flash and lighting and to undertake interesting and varied photo-shoots including abstract, impressionism, portrait and still life. Every year Willie has managed to come up with new and stimulating ideas and as a result, the sessions are very well attended.

The school meets on Monday evenings (May - August) from 7:30pm at the Methodist Church Hall, Palace Avenue, Paignton, TQ3 3EQ. Meetings last 2 hours or so with a break for tea/coffee.

Recent summer school events have included:

  • Macro & close up photography
  • Portrait photography using a simple single light source and backdrop
  • Still life including smoke patterns, water droplets, playing cards, light bulbs, tools and many other day to day objects found in and around the home
One of the key benefits in attending summer school is that the photos we take are often eligable for entry in club competitions and indeed, several have been placed and highly commended.
