Travel

The Travel Group is very active and welcomes all RPS members. We enjoy hearing members' ideas, seeing new images in the galleries, learning from one another and meeting when possible.

All RPS members are welcome to join the Travel Group.

The Group was formed in 1990 to promote the enjoyment and understanding of travel photography: of trying to capture the spirit of places we visit and, through photography, sharing that spirit with others. The Group provides a forum where members can improve their knowledge and exchange views regarding travel photography and related issues.

The Group is at its liveliest and most effective when there is discussion involving a wide range of members.

Printing Workshop

21st April 2024 at RPS House

Led by Tim Jones, Fotospeed's technical support lead this workshop will cover the basics of printing and calibration, advising participants about choosing the best paper for the task in hand and ensuring that what you see on the computer screen is what appears on the paper.

Tim will be sharing his personal knowledge and experiences of working with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom as a photographer, and how he has used the software for printing and editing his work over the last 15 years. Tim completed his MA in Photography at Falmouth University in 2021.

Photographic Storytelling

21st April 2024 at RPS House

Led by Judy Ford, 2020 recipient of the Joan Wakelin Bursary

This will be a stimulating, interactive workshop to learn different approaches to creating a cohesive set of images. Your aim may be to tell a story or to document an event, place or culture. After an introductory session with examples, most of the day will be spent in practical sessions, working in small groups. Everyone will review the final selections as digital files at the end of the day. 

You will leave with a much clearer idea of which images work well and how they fit together to achieve your aims. Also, identify the subject and approach for additional photos required to complete the project.
