Our Meetings
Camera Club Meetings are held twice per month!

Due to the pandemic we are meeting virtually for the foreseeable future

Fourth Annual Photo Critique Night Meeting - 10/12/20 - 7:00PM - Remotely through Zoom (This Critique Night is in lieu of Speaker Night Meeting)
Panelist - Howard Clark, Bidyottam Mittra, Barbara Statas
The Photo Critique is an opportunity for GCC members to get quality feedback on their
photographs. The panel will point out strengths in the images and suggest improvements.
The motivation for this critique is not to qualify or disqualify images, but to offer suggestions
on how to improve the photos. There are no awards. This is an educational endeavor and
opportunity to receive advice from some of the best photographers in the club. Click Critique Details for instructions.
