It has been running Zoom meetings featuring a variety of speakers - including one based in France - and holding virtual competitions.
The latest was the digital Annual Exhibition Competition, whose winners were chosen live on Zoom by a guest judge.
Some are shown here.
Spokesperson John Day said: "Swindon Photographic Society is 122 years old and do not stop our meetings easily. 
"Our new season starts on Thursday 3rd September at 19.30, and we welcome new members. 
"During just the first half of the year up until Christmas we have eight presentations or talks, eight competitions and two interclub battles."
The speaker at the 3 September meeting will be internationally-recognised photographer Mike Martin, whose theme will be: "It's not what you see, it's what you make." 
John Day added: "In our club room or on Zoom we will be having our meetings - lockdown or not."
