We aim to run three or four events each year at Foxton Village Hall and Sports Pavilion, in Foxton near Cambridge.  

Our events cover all aspects of digital photography and imaging, from camera craft, through artistic enhancement in the computer, to printing techniques and colour management.

We invite some of the top names in the photographic world to talk about their work, demonstrate their techniques or share their skills.

 

In addition to the this we run joint field trips with the East Anglian Region throughout the year, creating opportunities for us to get out and about with our cameras in the company of other photographers.  

All of our events are open to non-RPS members.

If you would like any further information or have any suggestions for future events, please contact Centre Organiser, Mark Gillett

 

DIG are currently offering a varied programme of online talks via Zoom that are free to DIG members. Go to Events to see the latest and book a place.

In the Spotlight...

A regular feature where we invite one of our members to talk about an image that we think deserves to be in the spotlight.....

Cuckoo Singing DSC5575

Cuckcoo Singing

"So well-known is the Cuckoo, or at least its evocative voice, that our literary heritage contains many examples of how its return in spring has been welcomed by various authors.

Today, however, there are reports of localised declines in several parts of the UK which has prompted the British Trust for Ornithology to undertake a study to learn more about its movements, migration routes and winter quarters.

This has been achieved by fitting satellite trackers to birds from different regions of the UK and is proving most enlightening, and will hopefully lead to a greater understanding of the behaviour of one of our most-loved birds.

The bird here was photographed on the edge of moorland in south-west Scotland where birds are still relatively numerous.  It was photographed from a hide located adjacent to a regularly used perch, using a Nikon D4S with a 500f4 lens on a tripod.  Settings were 1/3200 sec @f6.3 and ISO640."
