The Urban Group was formed in 2020 and caters for both stills and film/video members - all TPS members are welcome.

The group meets in the the clubrooms in Howard Street at 7:30pm on the third Wednesday of the month (October to April).

Preliminary dates for group meetings in 2022-23 are:

Group meetings are structured around a monthly assignment (see DropBox) to produce a limited number of images capable of being printed or a short film on themes of architecture, urban/city landscapes, aspects of urban life and people within the urban environment. The group discusses ideas and technical issues relating to the assignment and the results of the assignment are shared at the following meeting. Each member is encouraged to discuss their approach to the assignment and share what they learned. The idea is to support each other along the way, share knowledge and experience, improve our expertise, and build a personal portfolio of work. But most of all, the aim is to enjoy the assignments and have some fun.

 Urban Group Summer 2022 Assignment

Photograph some of the geometric shapes that we see in our urban environment. They can be details within buildings or objects, created by shadows cast from buildings or objects, or anything else you see. Use your imagination! The end product should be six images at a resolution that can be shown as PDIs but also printed. An assignment sheet with examples from Flickr for this, and all other assignments can be found in the usual Dropbox link.

For further information contact Alan Forster. The intention is for the group to be self-supporting with every member playing a full role in drawing up and reviewing assignments. Downloadable assignment planning sheets and current and previous assignments are available in Dropbox.
