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.

Monochrome, Black and White, and Infrared
In some respects, monochrome is one of the most creative forms of photography. After-all we don’t see the world in black and white. The discussion will help us think about the key creative aspects which are needed to create monochrome image as a piece of fine art.
