Photo Arts Group

The goal of the Photo Arts Group is to help our members achieve their potential in film and digital photography. We encourage sharing photographs for discussion and critique to help each other achieve that potential. Technical, thematic, and topics aspects of photography are discussed at meetings. In warm-weather months, the group also offers on-location photo shoots around the region. All levels of experience are welcome.

The group meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month at the Wickford Art Association’s Gallery, on-location, or through ZOOM! For more information please email WAAphotoarts@gmail.com.

Registration is required – use the link below to register.  Bird photography can be one of the hardest types of photography. But it’s also an incredibly rewarding challenge, as well as a fun look in to one of nature’s most interesting creatures. When you combine low light, with fast moving and small subjects it can be hard to get the photos you really want. In this 75 minute live webcast, Matt will dive in to the various gear, tips and tricks to help make your bird photos stand out from the crowd. You’ll even learn some photo editing tips to help with light, noise and distractions, so that you end up with beautiful razor sharp bird photos to share.
