To be a member of the group you to have a passion for printing your images. The last stage of any image is holding it in your hand and being able to share that image with friends. The Group are all members of other photographic societies in the area. We are not a competition group for federation events but people who enjoy photography and want to share our skills and thoughts in a small group.. By doing this we help strenghten people in our clubs. We all have different skills, interests and passions in their photographic choices. Many members enter National Exhibitions and many of them are on the L&CPU Lecturers & Judging List & PAGB Judging List. SRGB is simply a colour space and seemed a simple name for the group.

We meet twice a month at Studio72. We have a limited number of members due to space. The meetings are lead by the groups members, nights can be anything photographically based. Many members share skills, we have speakers, photoshoots and summer meetings. There is also have a monthly critique night. Members can enter the critique each month but only with two new unmounted prints . We all get the opportunity to discuss the images. The nights organiser then chooses their Top Awarded Print, three shortlisted prints and the final choice is given the Trophy. It’s a bit of fun but highly sorted after by the group members.

COVID Restrictions

The Government Guidelines don’t allow us to meet. To keep the group in touch, we are continuing the critique group on-line. I created a member section on the webpage. We can have our monthly critique and comment on them. As with the meetings, one of the members runs the night and selects the top three images. It keeps the group communicating and a reason to create images. More recently, we have also had, Meet Up – Zoom Critique Nights and Speakers. We hope that we’ll meet again next season.
