Digital Photography


For the first time in years, it didn’t rain on us during the breakup, because we celebrated it inside at the Bendigo Bank! We enjoyed and discussed the great photos taken by members recently, then took on THE CHALLENGE, photographing coloured water as it dripped through clear water. Much discussion, noise, mess and water!

Many thanks to Marg Thomson for the idea and the coordination of bowls, dye, plastic, towels, white boards and more! Winner to be displayed in the New Year.


Our regular meeting day is on 26th January, so we will be joining in the Day Outings’ Australia Day picnic at Healesville. But we are arranging an extra outing for anyone wishing to have a photography outing anyway.

Saturday 21 January LUME MONET in the city.  11 a.m. session at the Melbourne Convention Centre, Spencer/Clarendon St, South Wharf.

Noelle H for Don and the Digital Photography Group


The group meets the 4th Thursday of every month (except December as it clashes with Xmas) – from 1330-1600hrs.

Our normal meetings are held in the meeting room of the Bendigo Community Bank in Ringwood East.


As well as regular meetings at the Bendigo Bank venue we often have day trips to specific photographic locations.  Additionally, as opportunities present, we may invite a guest speaker to address the group.


We have been active since the inception of the Ringwood Clocktower Probus Club Inc. as one of the first convenor led groups.

The objective of the group is to help members begin the process of getting more out of the Digital Photography revolution though understanding their new Digital cameras and begin the process of developing and expanding group knowledge about photography in general.

We have held photographic exhibitions at a number of our birthday celebrations whilst also producing our annual club calendar
