February 11 – Practical Photography – This month Dennis Plank will show us how he attracts birds to his property and the best way to photograph them. So if you enjoy wildlife photography of any sort don’t miss it.
February 18 – Member Sharing – This month the focus will be on flash photography. This is the time to show what you learned in the January Practical Photography meeting when Bruce Livingston gave an indepth talk on using flash. Studio flash, fill flash or whatever situation you found to use flash in your photography we would like you to show us what you have been doing. If you don’t do flash photography or just didn’t have time please bring something to share. Limit is four images, digital or print or a combination of digital and print. Size your digital images to 1024-2048 pixels on the long side, jpeg only. Place the images in a folder with your name on the folder. Use a jump drive/thumb drive to bring your images to the meeting.
February 25 – General Meeting – Club Member, Chuck Paeth will be presenting on Arches and Canyonlands National Park. He will help you plan a successful trip to photograph the Parks. Chuck will share tips for a “do it yourself” trip that will help ensure you have a wonderful experience and come back with great photos.

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.
