Sun Lakes Camera Club (SLCC) is the largest camera club in the Southeast Valley. Our members share an interest in photography that reaches beyond the casual snapshot. We appreciate the power and beauty of a great photo and share tips and constructive critiques to improve our images. We welcome all shooting styles and levels of experience. (October Banner Photo is by Herman Dirks).
The slideshow is from our End of the Year Competition Winners (April 2019). (Click on the large image for full screen view, wait for images to load and then use back/forward arrow to view images.
The Next General Meeting is on Thursday November 7 starting at 5pm at the First Baptist Church in Chandler at 3405 S Arizona. The church is located on the east side of Arizona Ave almost across from the high school.
Attendees will pay $10.00 pp, new and trial members invited, and that will include salad, pizza, soft drinks, water and desert.
Education will not be rotating at this event. There will be 2 lightroom classes in the same classroom.
Paul Lesage will be teaching "Beginning and organization of Lightroom".
Jon Berghoff will be teaching "Editing in Lightroom".
The other option available will be image evaluation by Bill Lewis and LynnThompson. Members interested in this class would need to bring some images in some format larger than a small iphone (print, ipad, computer) for the mentor to evaluate, and listen to the evaluation of the other images.
There will also be a hosted educational video from the Photographic Society of America. The PSA video will be “Travel and Nature Photography, Near and Far”. The presenter is Ken Hubbard who is a Tamron representative. It is about 60 minutes long. Essentially it is a “How I got the shot” video that provides many useful tips for both novice and enthusiasts.
Clean up will be simple (all paper plates, cups etc), but any assistance would be appreciated to put the church back as we found it.
The Next Competition Meeting will be in the Navajo Room at the Sun Lakes Country Club at 6:30 pm on Thursday, October 17.
The subjects, aside from Open, will be:
October 2019 Rotating Subject: Photo Travel. A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally. There are no geographic limitations. Close up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the environment or context. The image may be either color or monochrome.
October 2019 Special Techniques: Close Up or Macro. This is an image of small subjects or parts of larger subjects. Achieving sufficient depth of field is the challenge with this technique. In some cases, just using a very small lens opening might be sufficient but in other cases some form of focus stacking may be needed. The image may be color or monochrome.
The Sun Lakes Camera Club is pleased to announce that Fundamentals of Digital Photography, presented by Dan Dragoon, will be offered once again this season. This fun, plain-language course is perfect for those new to Digital Photography, as well as intermediate level photographers seeking to improve their technique. This workshop is open to members and the public, so if you know anyone interested, print them a brochure and registration form.

2019-2020 Rotating Subjects and Techniques, and 2020-2021 Rotating Subjects and Techniques have been released by Wayne Divoky, our Competition Chair.
