Zoom has changed our lives! Well mine anyway!
With the current Cvid situation Zoom has become the collective word for video conferencing, like Hoover is for vacuum cleaners. But whichever app you favour it has become, for many, an important tool for communication during our home confinement. To keep in touch, have meet ups, learn new skills or just sit and watch interesting speakers.
The RPS very quickly responded and have offered extremely interesting insights into the lives and histories of well renowned photographers and are continuing well into the autumn and 2021, with a long list of talks and exciting workshops that we can dip into and many at no additional cost. It’s a great time to be a RPS member, and there is a great offer for membership available too.
Regions and Special Interest Groups are getting onboard too, offering cancelled speakers online as well as seeking new presenters and offering 'Hands On' workshops. Lots of planning and thinking is going on behind the scenes to bring you a new online timetable of events for the next few months.
The South East Centre of the Digital Imaging group, with assistance from the DIG Committee, and collaborating with the Creative Eye Group saw Steve Gosling's presentation The Nature Of Creativity at the end of June. Collaboration is good, sharing innovative ideas, reaching a wider audience, and combining skills is surely the way forward? We had a bumper audience that day!
Again in collaboration with DIG and the Creative Eye group, early in 2021, we have invited Nat Coalson, to present, Abstract Photography as Fine Art. Here are full details of the Event, all about Nat and how to book. This will brighten those dark days of January.
The South East Centre of the Digital Imaging Group brings prestigious speakers from the world of photography to Kent. This flourishing group was established in 2017.
The organisation at DIG SE is run by a small but enthusiastic team ably assisted by Volunteers on Event Days. We arrange Four, 'Star Events' in a year and in 2020, we are extending the scope and all of our Presenters have agreed to run Workshops prior to their presentations. Our Events are aimed at all who are interested in Photography, members of the public, RPS members and especially our Digital Imaging, Special Interest Group members.
We try to encompass all aspects of digital photography and imaging, and for 2020 our Presenters will inspire us in Nature, Landscape, Black and White Photography and Creative Imagery covering Double Exposure, ICM and Abstract.
