The Phorum


 The Phorum
Thursday November 29th 2018 at 7.30pm
Nursling Village Hall. SO16 0XH
Foul weather and foul traffic didn’t deter our intrepid bunch…
arriving windswept and damp ….
We began with a short talk on a favourite well known; Imogen Cunningham,
well worth a glance:
Her work is remarkable given the cameras she used and the technology available
and her artistic talent for lighting and composing is peerless.
We had a brief look at some images from a recent expedition to 
Antarctic in the Antarctic spring.
Our theme for November was Broken and as usual produced a broad range of 
exceptional images showing imagination, depth and artistic photographic skill.
See a gallery here:
Mike has highlighted a really good offer from Western Digital for 20% discount 
on their hard drives - a nice follow up to his talk:
If your discount does not display, simply enter coupon code 3wwadqzb6 at checkout to reveal your savings.
In the meantime have a look at these exhibitions:
My Exhibition is opening at the Southampton City Art Gallery 
on December 4th until 18th February 2019
See the flyer below.
I’ll have a small opening gathering on Saturday 8th December at 12.00 noon at the gallery
- no wine I’m afraid - but there are plenty of pubs and cafes nearby.

About The Phorum photography group

The Phorum was formed in response to requests for a meeting place which would

allow photographers to be acknowledged for their work, to have it peer appraised

with lively discussion and to learn from others in the group.

Unlike many Camera Clubs there are no competitions and each month there is a set

theme chosen by the group, the results of which are reviewed at each meeting.

We have regular talks and workshops covering technique, the history and range of

genres of photography and well known practitioners.

One of the aims of the group is for our work to be seen.

We have regular exhibitions - this year's took place in the

Southampton City Art Gallery - January to March 2017 and

we have our next planned for sometime during 2019.

We are also keen on the publication of self published photography books

and utilising Flickr and our own websites to display our work.

Our meetings take place on the last Thursday of every month.

The group is made up of very enthusiastic and prolific amateur photographers.

Absolute beginners can find their way with help and advice from those of us more knowledgeable 

and those with experience and skill can expand, find new creativity and direction away

from the sometimes limited range of ideas and genres available in traditional clubs.
