The new photography group says the move is in response to the medium still being widely taught in colleges and universities, and schools reopening their darkrooms, for example.
The formation was also prompted by the ‘significant level of response’ the RPS says it received – from members and non-members – to an RPS Journal article about the importance of film, and the creative potential of the traditional medium.
The group’s inaugural meeting is set to take place on Saturday 31 January, from 10.30am-4pm, at College Hall, Lichfield, Staffordshire WS13 7LD.
Attendance costs £7 for RPS members, and £10 for non-members.
The programme for the day includes photographing Lichfield Cathedral, and a talk about film and the darkroom.
