Welwyn Garden City Photographic Club

Welcome to the Butterfly Group

                                                                                      Butterfly Group.

 

The aim of the group is to record images of British Butterflies,and to enable like minded people to talk about the creatures.( i know it is sad ). The photographing of Butterflies is the prime objective of the group,but interesting wild life images of other animals and plants spotted when searching for Butterflies will be permitted.

I will endeavor to put a message on the group site each week, during the Butterfly season ( Mar./Apr. to Sep./Oct. ) listing the species seen in the park near Shoplands W.G.C.- to find the meadow, park in the main shop car park,cross road via. crossing, turn left pass bus stop, then right at the Doctors. The meadow is straight ahead.

Assuming you are joining our group you will need some sort of camera.

If you have a fixed lens camera, use the macro setting. If you require more magnification, then close up filters can be purchased. These come in a set of three. they can be used singularly or in any combination. They are screwed in position, in place of the lens filter.

If you have a removable lens camera and also require greater magnification, the following is available:-

a)  A set of close up filters :-  as above.

b)  A set of close up tubes. ( 3 in a set ) These fit between the body and the lens, ( telephoto is best ) and can be used in any combination.

c)  A macro lens.

‘A’  is the cheapest and ‘C’ dearest.- By hundreds.

If you require any information about the group or Butterflies in general contact me via. E-mail

lyn.brace1@outlook.com or collar me for a chat on club night.

 

Thanks

Photography Lessons

Here are some ideas for Photography Lessons from Beginners to Advanced.

 

Dave Foster is an Ex club Member but one who still has many associations with the club, He does 1 to 1 sessions and group sessions.

As of April 2018

sessions :-

12/5/18 – St. Albans
26/5/18 – Welwyn Garden City/Sherrardswood
9/6/18 – St. Albans
23/6/18 – Welwyn Garden City/Sherrardswood
30/6/18 – St. Albans
14/7/18 – Welwyn Garden City/Sherrardswood
21/7/18 – St. Albans

The groups will be a max of 5 people. They will run from 8am to 12pm, with a stop for refreshments at some point (not included in the price). They will be varied and cover all basic camera functions as well as some composition ideas and tips. The cost is £20 per person per session and can be booked with me either by phone (07778 568768) or Email : David Foster.
I am also offering individual one to one lessons at £35 for a two hour session and can be tailored to whatever anyone would like. Walk and talk with cameras? Sit down with a coffee and chat through camera settings? Or a bit of both. They can also be pretty much when and where is convenient.

 

See our  Links Page for further ideas.

The first Butterfly image for our group.

A pair of Common Blues.

                                              This photograph was taken in my backfield in Aug.2015.

I like the position of the Blues and the bend in the grass,

but i wish the background was cleaner.

Alien Moth in Welwyn Garden City

I saw this on my way home the other night. It is almost certainly a Box-Tree Moth, Cydalima Perspectalis from Asia. They were first seen in the UK in 2007 and have been spreading North from the South East ever since. ( taken with  a Iphone )
