Photography Interest Group

The inaugural meeting of the U3A Pretoria Photography Interest Group (PIG) took place in April 2019.
The members of the group meet once a month to discuss photography related topics and share experiences. Occasionally outings are organised and creative tasks are set regularly.

Due to the continuing lockdown Photography Interest meetings have been postponed, but to keep you motivated there will be a challenge every two weeks.

The theme for the creative task 1 for 2021, is "Potato".
Deadline for submissions is Saturday, 9 October 2021, 18:00.
