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 the Boy Scouts of America, 3213 Walker Ave. NW, Walker, MI. Come and visit; you can elect to join our club at any time.

Why I liked the image.

This photo tells a story of time gone by. It also asks a question about how this scene came about. Few photos possess these qualities – Gordon 

About my image.

I looked through my files and chose a truck I shot in 2015 in Northern California, with the aim of creating a composite of images I captured from the same region. The setting I chose was taken in a wetlands area, a place where you would never see the slightest measure of litter. The sky in that image had been a flat grayish white, so I added a warm sunset from a different day. The 3 ravens were from another day, added in order to convey more of a feeling of abandonment. I used Photoshop selection tools for each element of the composite, and used TopazLabs for color adjustment, contrast, and vibrance. After creating many versions of the same scene, I stopped at this one. In creating this composite, I was able to revisit some of my favorite and most meaningful places. – Linda
