The Wonders of Zoom!
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 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.
Entries are invited each year for the DI Group's Print Competition. Every entrant is guaranteed at least one acceptance into the Group's touring Members' Exhibition. Prints are selected at the Group's Annual General Meeting by a panel of three eminent photographers, who also choose the RPS Medal and Trophy winner and the six RPS Ribbon winners. Selected images are published in DIGIT. The selected images will appear in a catalogue published after the event.
Your chance to enter the 2019 Competition is just round the corner Full Details
