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 the club will meet virtually via Zoom for the foreseeable future. Please check our Events/News page for information on the Zoom 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.

Image of the Month
Man in Window
Why I liked the image.
While reviewing the images, this one instantly caught my attention. Not only is it quite technically perfect, it draws the viewer in. I instantly want to know what he's thinking, what he's looking at. He is telling quite a story. I don't know if it was set up or not, but either way, great job to the photographer for seeing and creating this image. - Becky
About my image.
The photograph “Man in Window” was made in the city of Targu Mures, Transylvania, Romania, during a trip to Eastern Europe. This gentleman looked like an interesting subject, so I raised my camera and he nodded approval. Exposure was 1/200 sec. f/8, ISO 400, Nikon D200, 18-200mm VR at 200mm. I found that people generally welcome being photographed and it inspired several more photographs of people in windows. – Richard
