Virtual Field Trips

No field trips are scheduled at this time due to COVID-19.  Instead we will conduct a series of virtual field trips in the monthly newsletter and with Field Trip Galleries.

A Day in the Life of OCC

The OCC motto is “Photographers Helping Photographers and Their Community Since 1935.” To help camera club members keep on shooting, our next virtual field trip is your new normal –  “A Day In the Life of OCC.” Go out, or stay in and show us five photos from any given day before the due date of October 8th. You are encouraged to pick a day, see what the day brings, take photographs during that day, and after post-processing, share with fellow OCC members. Tell us about yourself, your life, and your photographs.

GUIDELINES for IMAGES:
Images are due by October 8, 2020.  Members may contribute up to 5 images per person to the newsletter for each virtual field trip, but you may also upload up to 10 of your images to the club’s website gallery by logging into the website and choosing ‘ADD IMAGES TO GALLERIES’ from the Member’s Only Area.

Please size your images to 2048 pixels on the long side and reduce the file size to 2MB or less. Put a watermark on the image and title each image. Example for the title: Milky Way over Mt Rainier_Pam Hoaglund. Please send the images as an attachment to an email to [email protected]

Planning Ahead:  We’ll have one Virtual Field per month.  Here are the titles & due dates for the next few months.  See the calendar for more details.

  • November 5: Starry Starry Night – astrophotography
  • December 3: Gratitude in the time of Covid19

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 have three regular meetings each month to meet varied interests and skill levels.  Members are also invited to attend monthly field trips and other club events.  Take a look at our Calendar to see what’s coming up in the near future.
