Do you have an interest in photography and want to share your passion with other photographers?

This group is open to photographers with any level of experience. No advanced equipment is required. The best camera is the one you have with you at the moment and even a cell phone camera can capture wonderful images!

Various event formats will be considered:

  • Group shoots (meet and all shoot around a style - see list below)

  • Collaborative shoots (plan a shoot together)

  • Photo scavenger hunt (go out and locate defined subjects to capture)

  • Shooting lessons: learn from other photographers

  • Learn photo editing techniques (via Zoom)

  • Share our portfolios with each other (via Zoom)

  • Create whimsical composite images (digital collages)

  • Share our work with the community (could be online, in a printed format or displayed at a venue)

The following styles of photography can be explored:

  • Landscapes (option to hike & shoot nature)

  • Outdoor portraiture (with or without fill light)

  • Studio portraiture (lighting techniques)

  • Architecture
