The purpose of the Olympia Camera Club is to learn how to be better photographers through sharing, teaching, guest speakers, and field trips.
Our club includes photographers of different skill levels and with varied interests. You will enjoy the camaraderie of interacting with those at your own skill level or with similar interests. You’ll also have opportunities to grow and learn from club members who have more advanced skills.
We’re Now Meeting on ZOOM!
Due to COVID-19, in-person meetings of the Olympia Camera Club are canceled until further notice. We are now scheduling virtual OCC meetings and will be releasing meeting information as it becomes available. Watch this space.
Tuesday, February 9, 7:00 pm – Practical Photography – This month, Chris Shealy will be doing a presentation on Portrait Photography – including how his small in-home studio is set up, the lighting equipment that he uses, and how he post-processes the portraits he makes. Bring your questions to the meeting as there should be adequate time for questions for Chris. Hope to see you on the 9th.
Tuesday, February 16, 7:00 pm – Member Sharing –This month we will focus on your Black & White images. Obviously, this can relate to any genre so the opportunities are vast. This will be another fun event for you to show us your black and white efforts, both new and past images if you have not been able to get out.
Tuesday, February 23, 7:00 pm – General Meeting –This month we welcome Teri Lou Dantzler as our special guest speaker. Teri is an internationally known iPhone photographer and leads photo tours in the Palouse. She will be teaching us how to produce first rate images with our iPhones with particular attention given to editing.
All meeting are on the Zoom Platform.
To participate you will need a microphone. A headset with an attached microphone is helpful. Most laptops come equipped with a built-in microphone. A Web Cam is nice, but not required.
