Worum es bei uns geht

This is a group for anyone interested in capturing the beauty of Michigan with digital or film cameras. Michigan is blessed with astonishing natural beauty and ample urban settings all of which make for tremendous photo-making opportunities. We will emphasize "making" photographs and art rather than "taking" snapshots. All skills levels are welcome. DSLR, point-and-shoot or even camera phones are welcome. Looking forward to meeting you and exploring the photogenic beauty of all Michigan has to offer.
