Processing Circles

The processing circles are run in monthly Zoom meetings to enable group discussions and exchange of ideas. One member each month submits a RAW image for the other members to edited. It has been fascinating seeing how different people approach the editing of the same image.

The four processing circles are managed by Irene Stupples, Jim Stupples, Leigh Foster and Howard Fisher.

Print Circles

Physical prints are circulated for constructive critique amongst the Print Circle members. The optimal number of members in each circle is 8 - 10. Two or 3 pouches are circulated concurrently, each person being asked to try and turn the pouch around in 2 weeks (maximum 3 weeks).

Read more details and an example of the process here

We have three print circles managed by Diana Wynn and Doug Lodge.

Member-Led Events

The group runs a rich programme of both professional workshops and member led events. Our professional workshops include a mixture of location based instruction and post-processing tuition. During the ongoing coronavirus lockdown, we are running a number of on-line events with some of our regular leaders.

Some of the most rewarding have been organised by our members. If you have a good knowledge of an area, its best vantage points and when the light is likely to be at it best then you have the makings of a field trip.

Please contact our member-led events manager, Dave Glenn at landscapememberevents@rps.org. Dave will be happy to help you to put your event together and publish it on our web pages.
