Digital Photography

PERSPECTIVE…… I mentioned Perspective in a recent email, hoping that it was the forbearer of good times ahead, with something fresh that would help us to find an interesting photographic view point. That was all,  without Mr. Covid!

Now, we have a new, but yet old perspective, with the fresh Covid lock-down.

What will (Can) it mean for our immediate photographic activities? Well, what about an old, but also recent friend, I speak of Table-Top and Macro photography generally.

Keep an eye out for an email with two links to 2 very interesting videos on the matter.

It currently looks like future meetings will only be via Zoom, but we will keep abreast of the situation in case of change.

We are all getting more comfortable working with Zoom, so we are able to share our images more proficiently. Please work on this assumption, when we’ll be able to view results of our efforts with both Perspective and revitalising efforts with Macro/Table-top.

Our Calendar Committee recently held a follow/progress meeting on Zoom,  and we are on track with our 2022 Calendar.


Keep safe, and we’ll all meet up again soon.

Happy Snapping.  Don.



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
