Grand Rapids Camera Club

Photography is our passion!

The Grand Rapids Camera Club is a member of the Photographic Society of America and the Southwestern Michigan Council of Camera Clubs. We usually meet once a month for a presentation which is both interesting and informative. This is followed by our photo competition for those members who want to enter. We all get to see the photography of others, and this helps us learn and improve.

Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings!

Club meeting are held the 3rd Wednesday of the month (except for February, July, and August). The meetings start promptly at 7:15 PM, so it is good to arrive about 15 minutes early. We meet at  Grace Episcopal Church at 1815 Hall St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506. Come and visit; you can elect to join our club at any time.  Most meetings are free for guests, but occasionally when we have a paid speaker there is a small $5 fee for non members.

Image of the Month

Banana Flower

Why I liked the image.

I chose “Banana Flower” as image of the month because I thought it was a beautifully simple image. I liked the selective focus on the pink petals of the flower. How the light hits the one lower petal is quite striking. I liked that the repeating line pattern in the flower stem is echoed in the leaves in the background. I also like how the pink of the petals is offset by the complimentary soft green background leaves. A very peaceful, beautiful image - Diane

About my image.

My wife and I vacationed in Hawaii for the first time this year in May. The image of the Banana Flower was taken on the Big Island near the city of Hilo. At the time I took this shot I didn't know it was associated with a banana plant and would produce a bunch of bananas in the future.- Randy
