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!

***PLEASE NOTE***

GRCC has resumed Face to Face meetings. Masks are encouraged, but not required. Guests are always welcome, however, please be aware that there is a nominal $5 guest fee to help defray our expenses. Every attempt will be made to record the program presentation and post it on our YouTube channel for those who are unable to attend the meeting in person.

Recordings of many of our previous online programs are available on the club's YouTube channel.

Image of the Month

Street View

Photographer:

Evie Carrier

Selected by:

Steve Port

Why I liked the image.

I selected “Street View” as Image of the Month. The camera position, at ground level, immediately positioned my eye to follow the street from the tip of my nose all the way to the back of the frame. I absorbed everything along the way until my gaze disappeared at the deepest corner. The colors of the wet bricks were soothing and inviting allowing me to travel into the photo without fear of darkness or loneliness. – Steve

About my image.

In this scene I used my lens to capture the cobblestone, curbs and curves of an inviting Paris Street. I painted streaks of light in windows and on buildings, used teals and greens to blend with existing structures, brightened up the browns, added highlights, and then gave it shadows and glints to create within it a more vibrant personality. Always, my overall goal is to make a scene feel so real that a traveler can just walk in and taste the ambiance. - Evie
