Our Meetings
Camera Club Meetings are held twice per month!

Speaker Night Meeting - 9/11/2017 - 7:00pm
Speaker: Don Rosenberger - Topic: Abtract Photography
By creative use of shutter speeds and camera motion we can create an entire new body of work. Abstract photography allows us to depart from reality and create works that are more expressive. We will examine the origins of this form of art and how we can incorporate this art form into our photography.While he considers camera gear to be important, it is only a tool that you use to achieve an end. In the field he might be shooting next to you with only an iPhone, but that might be the tool he chooses to achieve his creative vision. Together with Denise Silva, they run Road Runner Photography Tours. Click details for Don's bio.
