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.

The subjects, aside from Open, will be:
November 2019 Rotating Subject: City Scene. This topic is the Spring 2020 ACCC Rotating Subject. There is no definition nor any restriction. The image may be either color or monochrome or may be creative.
November 2019 Special Techniques: Selective Focus. Selective focus or shallow depth of field is technique that can be used to make specific objects stand out in a photograph. It will keep the selected object sharp and in focus, while the rest of the shot will appear to be out of focus. This can be achieved by using a longer (telephoto) lens, a large opening (small F stop), and or moving in close when taking the photograph. Alternatively, you can use your editing program to achieve some of the same results.
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.
