What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in photography whether they are in Montclair, or anywhere in the surrounding world. The Montclair Aperture Group was started to bring together and network with fellow photography enthusiasts. It is also our goal to connect with new friends to share experiences, techniques and tips. All skill levels, cameras and photographic subjects are welcome. The group will plan workshops, where you can learn the basics of photography, workflow and retouching as well as picture-taking events. We'll become better photographers simply by surrounding ourselves with people who share our passion for photography.

Whether you shoot digital or film, grab your camera, make a few new friends and let's make images.

I will be meeting a friend and having a drink at Jeremy's Ale House and we will talk about street photography and then be leaving around 1:00 pm to go shooting in the street. Anyone is welcome to join me. I plan to make it to Washington Square Park by 2:00 pm. We will be shooting and talking along the way. Washington Square Park is a great place for street photography as there is usually​ many people and cameras around. At 2:00 pm I will take a break from shooting to meet with anyone that wants to under the arch, this is a good time to ask any questions that you might still have. There is a fountain in the center of the park which may or may not be active. So, you can meet any time between 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Jeremy's Ale House or at 2:00 pm under the arch in Washington Square Park. Always check the event is going ahead before setting out.
