DIG Eastern is a sub-group of the RPS Digital Imaging Group.  We provide events in and around the East Anglia area, which are open to all.

Our programme of events is geared to meeting our members’ needs, whether they are beginners or more advanced photographers.  Our experienced members are very keen to help those seeking to learn and achieve more. 

We welcome everyone interested in the art and techniques of photographic digital imaging.  If you would like more information about joining DIG please click here.

More information on attending our events can be found below, on the main RPS website or by emailing the Centre Organiser, Mark Gillett.

 

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 digital world to talk about their work, demonstrate their techniques or share their skills. We also hold open skill-sharing sessions.

 

 

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

Photography is our passion and we would like to showcase members' work to encourage and inspire each other.  

So whatever genre of photography you are interested in we would like to see it and feature it here.

Have you achieved an RPS distinction in the last year, do you have a set of pictures that you are particularly pleased with or have you discovered a new technique that you wish to share?  

If so then please contact Web Editor, Sue Vaines

Dawn at Flakstad 

"In February 2019, I travelled to the Lofoten Islands for six days of photography.  They are located within the Arctic Circle off the west coast of Norway.

The weather was surprisingly warm for that time of year and on the first day of shooting there was rain. However, the temperature dropped to -4 degrees on the second day and even though there were snow showers the light was truly amazing.

I arrived at Varied looking towards Flakstad for the first location of the day.  Underfoot the rocks were coated in ice and snow, with frozen pools between them.  As the sun rose the light came from the left and lit the distant mountains.

My Fujifilm XT2 camera was mounted on a tripod with a 10-24 mm lens set at 18mm.  ISO was 100 and the exposure was 1/15th sec at F10.  I also used a graduated ND filter."
