Join us on Facebook

If you take digital pictures and would like to learn how to process and improve them to either print, attach to emails to send to friends or family, then come and join our enthusiastic self help group learning from each other.

We start from the very beginning with the operation of cameras, picture composition, exposure, downloading, to printing and mounting, in fact any aspect of digital photography you may want to know about.

You don't need any previous experience in photography whatsoever.

We have two separate groups at our meetings, one for beginners and one for improvers.

However, you don’t have to always attend or choose to join one of the groups for every future visit.

On each visit you can join whichever group is doing something you want to learn about.

Each time we meet we often bring along some digital images on a USB memory stick to review and for members to offer constructive criticism.

We offer both the beginners and the improvers groups the opportunity to view the images during their separate meetings.

The content of each groups meeting is chosen by the group members, and we welcome requests for subjects to be included in future meetings.

Come along and join in the fun.
