In the age of digital, more people are taking photos than ever before, but what happens to them? They are left languishing on a hard disc, or more likely deleted. Camera club members are encouraged to make use of the pictures they take in competitions, but at our recent meeting we were reminded of the other use, displayed in frames around the home ( or elsewhere ). Our speaker was Terry Woods, from Terrys’ Frames in Caversham, who brought along a wide range of frames and mounts to demonstrate the wide range available. In an interesting talk he explained that framing was added as a sideline at his original shop in Tilehurst ( now closed ), but he was surprised to find that this side of the business grew far beyond expectations. Now based in Caversham, Terrys’ Frames offer a wide service to anyone requiring a frame for any purpose, providing free mounting advice and a custom-made service as well as a huge range of standard sizes and types. He admitted that he had not thought of approaching the
“ amateur photographer “ market before visiting the club, but found some of the work shown to him as inspiring – hopefully our club members will be inspired to print and make more use of their pictures following his visit!
