Members of the Sheffield Photographic Society have put the city in the picture once again at an annual exhibition.

More than 100 images taken throughout the year by society members were on display in the Perspectives Exhibition in the Winter Garden.

Visitors enjoyed seeing a variety of different styles of photography taken around the world including landscapes, portraits, natural history, street photography, macro images and creative photography in both colour and black and white.

Each member also wrote a short narrative on the background of what motivated them to take their chosen pictures.

Also included in the exhibition, which was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of Sheffield Coun Talib Hussain, was a panel of historic images taken around Sheffield.

John Scholey, exhibition organiser, said: “We were delighted to hold this free exhibition for the eleventh year running in the Winter Garden for the general public to come along and enjoy the photographic prints on display

“I am sure that every visitor found some interesting and inspirational images and perhaps provoke some thought when taking their own pictures.”

Sheffield Photographic Society was established in 1864 and last year celebrated its 150th anniversary, making it one of the oldest photographic clubs in the world.

It is also one of the largest photographic societies within the UK.

The society has more than 100 members of enthusiastic amateurs, as well as semi-professional photographers.
