October Meetings

October 8, 7:00 pm – Practical Photography –Tonight’s program will be all about post processing. Rosalind Philips will take us thru editing from start to finish. So bring your laptop or follow along and take notes.

October 15, 7:00 pm – Member Sharing Night –  The theme for the October Member Sharing night will be “Capturing the World at 50mm.” That’s right; the images you bring to share must be taken at 50mm. So, get out that old prime 50mm lens or set your telephoto lens to 50mm and photograph the world around you.

if you are shooting with a crop sensor camera then you need to figure in the crop factor. So if you have a 1.5 or 1.6 crop factor you will need to shoot at a focal length between 30-35mm. If you shoot with a camera that has a 2:1 crop factor you will need to shoot at 25mm.

October 22, 7:00 pm – General Meeting – Matt Ferris will be presenting about sports photography.  Matt has done amazing photos with a variety of sporting events.  His work has been used by various sports teams.  Matt will also show some of his creative photogrpahy using various media to create fantastic images.

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.


You are invited to attend any and all of our meetings.  See the calendar for details.

The Olympia Camera Club is a member of the Northwest Council of Camera Clubs (NWCCC) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA).
