Welcome to North Fylde Photographic Society

North Fylde Photographic Society is a welcoming club of photography enthusiasts. Our members range from complete beginners all the way up to experienced professionals, who all love to share their thoughts and knowledge with each other. The club meets weekly during the season, to learn about all things photo and camera related.

Throughout our season we host regular guest speakers, friendly internal competitions, and tutorial seminars. Members also enjoy occasional show & tell evenings, and club outings to interesting photographic locations and events. We are open to all and enjoy meeting new faces, so please come along to a free taster night to check out what we are all about.

Location & Syllabus

We meet every Tuesday evening from the beginning of September to the end of April each year. Our usual meeting place is St Martin’s & St Hilda’s Church Hall in Carleton, however, a few evenings will be conducted online (as noted in the Syllabus).

Where to find us?

The syllabus for the current season is available to view on our syllabus page, check out what’s on this year at North Fylde Photographic Society.

Adding a Keyline in Photoshop

A keyline in photography is a thin border around the outside of an image, often used to help make the edges of the image distinct from the background it is displayed against. In our club we often see this used on projected images with black or dark backgrounds when projected. The keyline makes the bounds of our images clearer to the viewer. This tutorial will outline a simple method to add a keyline using Adobe Photoshop.

Living with Lockdown

As the Hallett enquiry into the Covid Pandemic gets under way, we can maybe remember how we tried to cheer ourselves up during that bleak Summer of 2020. Without our usual Summer socials and not even sure about our next Club Season. Zoom came to our rescue eventually, but over that Summer we issued online newsletters to the members - just to stay in touch - and somehow it made things more bearable.

North Fylde Photographic Society meets every Tuesday evening from the beginning of September to end of April each year.

Meetings take place at The Church of St Martin and St Hilda, Fleetwood Road, Carleton, FY6 7NU, Starting at 7.30pm.
