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.

Dano has polished his skills in the wild. Years in the Amazon rainforest coupled with trips all around the USA as well as many other locations has him allowed the opportunity to capture many unique species in unique places. Brining all that he has learned in his travels home to the Pond at Elephanthead. He will be educating us on many types of wildlife and nature photography, conservation, as well as opportunities at Elephanthead. Dano also just returned from an adventure in Peru and will share some of that excitement, also!"

November's Competition Subjects are:
November 2018 Rotating Subject: High Key. This topic is the Spring 2019 ACCC Rotating Subject. There is no definition nor any restriction.
As a guide, a high-key image consists primarily of light tones, without dark shadows. A photograph so composed features a diminished tonal range of primarily whites and light colors. An example might be a landscape with ground fog present. The idea is that a histogram of the image would be shifted to the right (white side) with little or no pixels on the left side (black side). The image may be either color or monochrome.
November 2018 Special Techniques: Sunrise Sunset. Any image taken at either sunrise or sunset showing the impact of the color, color saturation, and color hue in either the sky or on other objects or both. The image must be color.
