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!
Due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic at this time the club is meeting virtually via Zoom. Please check our Events/News page for further information on our programs. Members will receive a Zoom link via email to join the meeting. Non-members should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request the meeting link. Recordings of many of our previous online programs are available on the club's YouTube channel.
As the pandemic evolves we will be assessing when we will resume face to face meetings. Current plans are for a F2F meeting in October 2021. We will be following any CDC masking recommendations at the time. As the pandemic seems to be a moving target, these plans too, could change. Always check the Events/News page for specific details.

Image of the Month
Foggy Morning At Riverside Park
Why I liked the image.
This photo has a great balance that shows creativity, composition, exposure, and depth. I like the reflection of the tree in the water, the foggy background, and that single yellow leaf floating on the water. This photo gives a sense of calm and peacefulness before you start your day of work and craziness of the world around you. - James
About my image.
Wait 5 minutes. A rule I once heard from another photographer. When you think you're done and ready to pack up, wait 5 more minutes. I was out exploring one foggy morning, and I found this scene. I loved the fog, the reflection of the trees, and the river getting lost in the fog. I figured I'd captured it as well as I could have and was about to leave, then I remembered to wait. It was in that 5 minutes that this yellow leaf floated into my scene and completed my image. So honored it was chosen as the image of the month - Becky
