Digital Photography SIG
This SIG meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7.p.m.
Taking pictures has never been easier. Make use of your Virtual Darkroom and join us!
We play with digital photos from cameras or film scanners. We try to improve them with good software,
and then display them either in print or on screen. It's lots of fun and we all learn together!

This Months Program Notes

Digital Photography Special Interest Group

Special Guest Speaker Charles Bertram Chief Photographer at the Lexington Herald

February 26, 2018

Digital Photography Special Interest Group Tuesday, February 26, 2019 This month we have a great opportunity to hear from one of Lexington’s most recognized photographers, Charles Bertram. Many of you have seen his pictures in the Lexington Herald Leader. Mr. Bertram has been a photographer for the Lexington Herald since 1977 and is now their chief photographer. He will be showing us some of his recent images and some of the old ones. He will talk about his duties at the herald and give us advice on how to take good pictures. Being a photographer for a newspaper is more than just taking some good pictures. Along with taking a good photograph, the newspaper photographer has to be able to tell a story with his pictures. Along with that, he has to work with the public, his peers and supervisors, while traveling all over the Lexington Herald area of interest. Above are some of his recent pictures. Since joining the Herald Leader, Bertram has been named the Kentucky News Photographer Association’s Kentucky photographer of the year 7 times. He has had photos published in many major magazines, but his passion is daily community journalism. “I most enjoy getting out in the state, talking to our readers, and making photographs that make them smile, cry, laugh or at least gives them a little different perspective on our community”. With that, we welcome him back again.

This month our photo contest is on “Animals”. Many of you have extensive travels and have shown me great pictures of animals from your trips. Now is a good time to show them or your other animal pictures off. Submit your entry to no later than midnight on February 25, 2019. Join us February 26, 2019 at CKCS. Bring a friend.


Thanks for all your support!
