Digital Imaging Group Scotland Centre Next Meeting on 16 November 2014 details here
We are a very friendly and enthusiastic group and enjoy constructive discussions about our latest images, ideas, photography, processing techniques and art in general. Recognising the broad use of digital technology, our work is varied and covers all RPS photographic categories (Visual Art, Travel, Contemporary, Nature etc.). This group was formed in 2012 and became the Scotland Centre of the Digital Imaging Group in October 2013. We have around 25 active participants with various skill levels.We are always keen to attract new participants. Our aim is to encourage all aspects of photography from camera capture through post-processing to produce images that allow authors to make a unique and personal photographic statement. We further aim to encourage membership of the Royal Photographic Society in Scotland and the DIG.
September 14th, 2014 Meeting
A disappointing turn-out for this meeting, with holiday conflicts and a major wildlife photography event only a few miles along the road. Those who did attend enjoyed a very interesting and debate stirring talk from Colin McClatchie on his work as a professional Sports Photographer. Colin showed some great examples of his work.
Andy Hayes had been working hard and his cabinet making skills were there for all to see with part one of our new DI Group Scotland print stand. A fantastic job - many thanks to Andy.
Bill Hogg took the brave decision to show us all his failed "F" panel - better luck next time Bill! This very interesting work is inspired by the style created by the painter Alphonse Mucha.
Bill has also created an AV show of his panel which can be found here.

July 13th, 2014 Meeting
We had our biggest attendance to date and were delighted to host Janet Haines, Chairperson of the RPS DIG, at the RPS DIG Scotland Centre on Sunday 13th July 2014 in Bridge of Allan. Her presentation “My Distinctions Journey” started with an intruction to the Digital Imaging Group and included some of the successful DI Group competition images.
We broke for tea, folowing which Janet took us through her journey in prints. This started with her "L" panel, her work for CPAGB, her "A" panel and images for DPAGB (many of which wer festooned on the rear with ribbons and awards frrom various international salons). Janet moved on to show some of her recent fine art figure work as she continues her journey towards MPAGB and "F".
Bill Hogg thanked Janet on behalf of the DI Group Scotland Centre for her excellent and inspirational presentation.
The DIG Scotland Centre meets once every 2 months.
RPS members and non-members are welcome to attend. A small charge is made to cover costs, which are split equally amongst attendees.
Typically, the largest part of each 3 hour meeting is for the benefit of attendees who show their latest work. Our attendees give and receive critique, encouragement and opinion from other attendees. We are particularly keen to see and encourage work towards RPS distinctions.
As our participation grows we hope to have a number of invited speakers.
