"Thanks, Sue. You are a consistent source of inspiration and with every event I get to challenge my skills! The whole experience of photography with the energy and talent of this group is unmatched and I am glad that I am part of it! ” Kusum
We're a unique and active group of friendly supportive photographers, beginners to advanced with all kinds of cameras. Our focus: learning, growing, and challenging our creativity. We do the typical nature, public event, and urban shoots and give tips on how to shoot them; often adding new twists. BUT we go far beyond. We do portraits, light painting; a beach studio for a day; B & W, our own exhibits; events to practice HDR, panoramas, panning; beginner workshops to learn exposure; etc.; technical and online creative challenges (which we invented;) printing and framing; slideshows; playing with photos; photo editing/Photoshop; Lightroom. We go on fall road trips; create our own cool sets based on movies ("King Kong Takes New Haven," for example;) and host the Canon EOL speakers as well as others. We have informative FLASH E-mails and sponsor (2) Facebook Groups.
At meetings teach and share. We are one of only two CT Meetups to belong to the NECCC (New England Council of Camera Clubs) which enriches us with opportunities. We offer a free courtesy registration to its annual July conference each year. Hunt's Photo & Video, the largest camera store chain in New England, is a sponsor, giving us 10% discount on accessories.
Vermont, Paris, Berkshires, glassblowing, Acadia National Park, Adirondack Balloon Festival, Boston, NYC, seal and eagle watches, car shows, abandoned, flowers, discovering towns, New Hampshire, Newport... we're always looking new subjects and innovative ideas. We share, socialize, and have a great time.
