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.

Why I liked the image.

Randy’s image is a great example of a monochrome image that is not black and white.  The lines of the car and the bright trees take your eye from the foreground to the background and back.  The tonal contrast makes you explore the many panels of the car as well as the details of the chrome. I enjoy images that really make your eye move like this one does. – Mike 

About my image.

I enjoy British Sports cars and this year in July, my wife & I made it to the Gilmore Car Museum for their annual Mad Dogs & Englishmen car show.I really enjoyed dusting off the infrared camera to capture these beautifully designed sports cars. I think Infrared photography dramatically sets these cars apart from the background. - Randy
