A new photography group set up to help enthusiasts get more from their cameras is being officially launched next week.
Founder Tracey Robinson found her life was transformed when her husband Eric bought her a camera on a holiday six years ago.
As the bug caught hold, it helped her overcome depression and a debilitating illness and she now works as a photographer.
Last year Mrs Robinson, 46, from Gaywood, started a Facebook group where people could upload and comment on each other's pictures.
It soon had 100 members. When she held a couple of trial meetings last month, more than 40 turned up for them.
