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 generally held the 3rd Wednesday of the month (except for February, July, and August). Occasionally meetings are held on other dates because of a conflict with the church schedule, so be sure to check the Events/News page for specific dates. 

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. There is a nominal $5 guest fee per meeting for non members (cash or check please).

Butterfly In Pink


Della Landheer

Why I liked the image.

Della’s image Butterfly in Pink grabbed my attention first with it’s beautiful color contrasts.  The many shades of pink against the black background are striking. I found this image very creative and intriguing, wanting to study it closer to see how the composition was achieved. I love the lines and form she created with the flower petals and I think the use of empty space really adds to the impact this photo makes. When I look at this, I feel a sense of movement as if the flower is opening and revealing itself. I think Della created a very unique and artistic composition and I love that - Karen

About my image.

"Butterfly in Pink" was created using three photos, a pink Lily, a small white flower and a Florida Sulphur Moth. The swirled, partial circle for the Lily is the result of using a mirrorball effect in Photoshop then cutting out the ball and placing it on a black background. The white flower and moth were cut out in Photoshop and pasted to the mirrorball photo.
