The Society intends setting up and manning a promotional exhibition to take advantage of this public event, following on from last years success. The event gives us the opportunity for voluntary members of the Society to meet and engage with the public to promote and spread the word on who we are and what we do.
If you wish to volunteer and help out please let a member of the committee know.
You can volunteer to attend (with others) to do a half-day, a whole day, or two days.

We aim to provide something for everyone, whether you are a keen-to-learn beginner or if you are already an advanced photographer.
“We are the longest running camera club in Lincolnshire, and one of the oldest within the whole country. It is special being part of a society that is steeped in history.”
Born in Grimsby I am now over 60
years old and retired. I started my passion for photography in 1975 when my
brother gave me a Zenith E 35mm film camera. My preference in those days was
for colour slide film which I processed at home and occasionally produced
prints in my makeshift darkroom via Cibachrome.
I took a very long break from
photography as work & family life swallowed up all my spare time. Fast
forward many years until digital photography came along and reignited my
passion in this very interesting hobby.
I take pictures of a wide variety of subjects and enjoy natural light far more than flash. Photography is a joy for me but I am constantly looking at my work to see what I can do to improve as well as updating my skills and style.
I only shoot RAW images and use DXO
Photolab 3 software as my RAW image converter of choice. Recently I started to
learn / use photoshop to give me more creative editing options. I do enjoy the
editing process just as much as taking the photo.
There is always something new to
learn in all aspects of digital photography, which adds to the fascination and
fun of this amazing hobby.
