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.

The Shoe

Why I liked the image.

I chose “The Shoe” by Diane Charvat as the image of the month because I thought it was a very creative image for the assigned subject. The purpose of the assigned subjects is to challenge us to create something memorable to fit the category. Diane’s image took me back to my childhood when my family would sit around the dining room table and play Monopoly. She took parts of the iconic game and created a memorable image. I think the choice to use no color in the image made it more powerful and emphasized the simplicity of the idea…..Diane Durand

About my image.

I always ended up being the shoe when I used to play Monopoly. I wanted to do something a little different for the assigned shoe subject, so thought this might work. I took three images, focusing on different areas of the shoe and merged them together in Elements. I liked the look of the image in monochrome….Diane Charvat
