Stourbridge Photographic Society is 100% digital.

Some members of the society meet on the second Wednesday of each month for software and technical workshops about various editing and photographic methods, although we are not a school of photography.
Meetings take place in the Bonded Warehouse, 7:30 start time and visitors are welcome. We don’t have a formal programme for this as the content varies with requests, however we do display next month’s programme in the text box on the right of the screen.

We also hold short question and answer sessions before the main event on a Thursday evening. Ideal for sorting out those things you always wondered about. Feedback on images or advice on cameras.

To enable beginners to get started, there are opportunities to have 1 to 1 tuition on camera and photo editing methods. Please contact us if you are interested.

If you have queries on editing or a photograph which needs some TLC, please email the technical group, so we can have a think about the problem. No guarantees but we’ll try our best. 🙂

Supported software:-

Elements v11 and upwards
Pictures to Exe (making audio visuals)
Helicon Focus (focus stacking)
Photomatix (HDR)
Apophysis (fractals)


A tip for Self-Tuition:-
YouTube is full of training material to help learn about your camera and discover editing skills.
Try looking for different presenters and find a few that you like listening to and are able to understand.
Also make sure they have plenty of material/videos. And finally, read a few comments on their videos to make sure they really do know what they’re talking about, ( some don’t ).
Then follow them and keep watching their video training.
