November Meetings

November 12, 7:00 pm – Practical Photography – This month’s program will be on photographic composition. In this day and age we have incredible cameras and editing software powered by AI and can sometimes forget it all starts with a well composed image. Gene Pardee will take us thru what makes an image more than just a snapshot.

November 19, 7:00 pm – Member Sharing Night –This month’s meeting will be a follow up to the October Practical Photography meeting on post processing. Bring two images. For each of the two images bring the RAW image and the same image post processed so in essence you will bring four images total (two RAW and two post processed).  Put your images in a folder with your name on the folder. Save the processed image as a jpeg at 1024-2048 pixels on the long side. Bring your images to the meeting on a jump/thumb drive. I will do some post processing using the new ON1 RAW 2020 program that I have fallen in love with and the results I’m getting.

November 26, 7:00 pm – General Meeting – An evening with Steve Ball. Steve is a photo industry veteran and nature/birding photographer based in the Pacific Northwest. Washington is where he has found a serious passion for birding with its diversity of habitats and environments. As a former photojournalist, he has learned to hone his skills and share them with those who love and appreciate photography as he does. Steve strives to share the concepts for capturing better images easy to understand for beginners through advanced photographers.

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).
