Cuppa & Capture

Cuppa & Capture

Cuppa & Capture is an extra activity associated with Driffield Photographic Society.

Our members (and their friends) meet regularly for a “friendly & fun” social activity, taking photos on a set theme.  The sessions usually begins and ends in a cafe/pub so that we can get to know each other, share ideas and share our results.

New participants are always welcome.  Hope to see you at our next meeting.  Don’t forget, if you’re new to the game of Cuppa & Capture, although we always have a theme to be interpreted by you, it’s not a competition.  Just share up to five of your favourite pictures with everyone in the group by email.

A minimum of two from each person will then be selected for our website gallery.  Remember to add a title your pictures and include your name.  Above all, do be prepared to ‘share and exchange’ know-how and ideas.  By learning from, and supporting each other, we all advance our photographic skills.

If you attend any of the events please forward some pictures to me for our web galleries to Ernie the website manager at

Best fit for a 1400 px by 1050 px rectangle.

This list is not exclusive.  If you have an idea for a photo day out please research it for availability and put forward your idea for inclusion on the list.

Theme for the day ‘Early 20th Century’

2020 starts with a Saturday out at Sledmere where the idea is to capture the feel of early 20th century pioneer photography and record a suitable subject in monochrome or tinted images.  So get your nostalgic heads on and get along and see if you would have made it as a photographer ‘back in the day’ a century ago.
