Welcome to Leicester Forest Photographic Society

Whether you're new to photography, or looking to extend your skills, you'll find plenty to interest and stimulate you at Leicestershire's premier photographic club. We pride ourselves in having a diverse membership of all abilities who benefit greatly from the wide range of activities we organise .

We have a comprehensive programme of lectures and competitions together with a well-equipped studio group. We also run workshops to help members improve their photographic techniques and group outings for members to put it all into practice. We are open to all with an interest in photography, whether you are already experienced or someone who is looking to develop their skills in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

We're running a complete programme online this year so why not come along and join us on zoom. To learn more click on the About or Programme menus above to see a list of this season's events.

Programme 2020 to 2021

Next Meeting

Thursday 18th February - Monochrome PDIs 2 Competition
Open, monochrome, projected digital images, judged in three Groups A, B and C, by Sue Hartley.
Meeting held online via Zoom, opens at 7:00PM with competition starting at 7:30PM

Next Workshop

February 22nd February - Better Images Workshop
The Photoshop and other software offer a huge number of tools for manipulating images in many different ways. Too often we get constrained by the photography competition circuit which is dominated by traditional or photorealistic images. Share some images where you have let yourself have a go with the "naughty" filters and pre-sets etc. But make sure the end result is good, say perhaps it's something you'd like to hang on your wall or sell in an art gallery.
Led by Catherine Knee: catherine.knee.uk@gmail.com
Meeting held online via Zoom, opens at 7:00PM with workshop starting at 7:30PM
