Hi all, I joined BPS with a basic knowledge of photography. l didn’t realise how basic until I recently had tutorials with Roger Tyler ( Photoshop ) and Adrian Butt ( Lightroom and all things tech ). What a fantastic opportunity to benefit from these members extensive experience. Highly recommended.

Super afternoon Roger, loved it! Thanks for organising 🙂
Hope to make many more Practical Group outings xx

Thanks for a great afternoon Roger. Here’s one of my shots. I’ve added it to the Practical Group Flickr group too.


Thank you Roger for reminding us of the steam fair on our doorstep. Pity about the Sun shining all afternoon but you couldn’t do anything about that! Anyway, 6 of us had a good 2 hours – plenty of pictures about and it’s there again Sunday (or go to joisting at Avoncroft Museum).

Roger, thanks for organising the Practical Group outing to the Stoke Prior Steam Rally.

Apart from taking photos, of course, the outings are a great way for new members like myself to meet and get to know other members of the club.


Daylight Long Exposure Techniques session

May I just say how much I enjoyed last night. It has inspired me to have a go at something different. BRILLIANT.

The 2014/2015 Novices class

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the beginners camera course – I have been on a couple of day beginners courses, but found it all too much to take in, in one go. So for me it was much better learning a little each week – and now I can’t wait to put into practice all what you have taught me. It’s certainly been fun and great to meet other people with the same interest. Roll on the next course”.

Hi Pete,
I am one of the newbies and very much enjoying my Tuesday evenings. I bravely entered a few shots for the competition last week, more for experience than any remote chance of getting anywhere. Everyone is very friendly and I feel at home but with much to learn.
I look forward to meeting you too next Tuesday.
Warmest regards,

Just to add my gratitude too. John and I are really enjoying the support, information, advice and fun that we are getting through being members. l think the balance of practical and theory is just right and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes in to making BPS successful. Thank you all for the warm welcome this last few weeks.
