The Creative Digital Group
The Creative Digital Group is an active sub-group of over 50 members that meets on Monday evenings. We meet at the Society’s premises in Great King Street, Edinburgh on Zoom and sometimes a combination of both.
The group is dedicated to exploring both the creative and technical aspects of digital photography from capture to printing and to improving our photography and having fun! The group is open to photographers at all levels of experience.
We have a full programme of activities including lectures on technique, art and general photography. We also have workshops, competitions and informal critique nights.
Our annual team based Photo Safari began in 2013-14 and is very popular due to the massive prizes! The aim of the Photo-Safari is to encourage our members to work in teams to produce a portfolio of themed images.
We also have two competitions and an on-line competition. Performance in these Competitions determines the winners of our trophies. We encourage our members to take part in the main Society Print and Digital Projected Image competitions as a further means of improving their photography. All CD Group work is based on Digital Projected Images. Browse our group pages for further information and next season’s photo themes.
We also participate in an annual 4-way inter-club competition with Kirkcaldy, Musselburgh and Stirling Camera Clubs.
