When: Every 4th Tuesday of the month @ 7PM. Visitors welcome.
Where: Zoom Meeting. Non-members can contact the President by email president@lccameraclub.com for an Invitation to the meeting

The regular meeting is formatted to provide an entertaining and instructive program including guest speakers, a member's showcase, monthly image theme, as well as special slideshow presentations and hands-on learning experiences.

At every main meeting, there is a review of images submitted for the Member's Showcase, the theme category, as well as the general "Anything Goes" category. Members are encouraged to share their images with the club for inspiration and for constructive feedback. We have been having great success using digital submissions for presentation on the projector systems at the meeting venues. For members, this means they simply email in their images, identified with their name and the category, for presentation.

The goal for this special interest group is to cover the basics of good and interesting photography, how to get the most or more out of your camera and to expand your photographic skills using a combination of instruction and hands on experience. We encourage participation with the sharing of images, ideas and experiences.

The redefined Digital Darkroom special interest group goes beyond using the computer as a tool - Lightroom (Adobe's photography program), Photoshop (Adobe's graphics program) and ProShow Gold/Producer (the slideshow program), to explore with our cameras with topics such as painting with light, indoor-lighting, outdoor-lighting and a host of other advanced techniques. There'll be lots of opportunity for hands-on learning. This remains a SIG for those wanting to go well beyond the basics.

Below are the Topics and Speakers for the upcoming year. Further description of the topics will be provided the week before the presentations.
The format of the meeting will be as such with certain flexibility depending on the length of the presentations.

  • Presentation and questions
  • Short break (15 min.)
  • Before and After Pictures
  • Combination of: ​
    • What’s new in processing (Show and Tell)
    • Questions from audience about processing – immediate answer provided if possible or answer to follow at the next meeting
    • Video or short live demonstration of tips/techniques

The idea is to make the second part more interactive and participatory.

This year, 2020-2021, we will expand on previous years by having plenty of discussion when sharing images as well as when we critique them.

Members provide photos that are shared on the screen for a short period of time. This is followed by a critique based on different elements (technical, composition, emotional appeal, and subject matter). The photographer is encouraged to provide more information on the image.  Discussion is always encouraged. Each of us can learn from honest, considerate critiquing which will help us to become better and more informed photographers.
