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.

Forthcoming Events -

Friday, 26 January 2018 - Meeting 2.00pm - St Mary's Church Hall, South Milford

The Improvers Group will be exploring the features of Adobe Camera Raw

Adobe Camera Raw is, in various forms, in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Elements and Adobe Lightroom

The latest version is ACR 10.1

We will be arranging to have a number of workstations so that we can have small groups each looking at their preferred methods and functions

Each of us will have learned different methods and functions, so by swapping around the groups we should, hopefully, all end up as wise as each other

Additional ideas from the membership are very welcome.

Come along and tell the group what you want to do at future meeting.

The Beginners Group will be looking at Black and White Pictures

At their previous meeting, the group watched a Mike Browne video extolling the virtue of setting a new personal photographic challenge.  He then set himself a goal of taking some photos in black and white - not usually his forte.  The group next watched two videos showing how he got on.

As a result of this, the group members set themselves the same goal and promised to bring their black and white pictures to the next meeting, together with the original colour photos from which they had been derived.  Some of the Improvers Group might join in, since they will be looking at black and white photography as well.

The Mike Browne "goals" video can be found here and his two part black and white video here and here.
