What we're about

The Palo Alto Camera Club was founded in 1935, and has monthly competitions as well as lectures, workshops, and field trips. Our competitions are the second Wednesday of the month starting at 7 p.m. A list of events can be found at https://www.pacamera.com/

This is a group for anyone interested in photography with a desire to improve their skills. All skill levels are welcome. Some of us just got a new camera and want to learn how to use it and how to make better images. Some of us have some photography experience and want feedback on our images from others and want to learn more about various techniques for improving our images. The purpose of this meetup is to invite local photographers to enjoy our educational events and join as a member through our website ( http://www.pacamera.com ) . 
You don't have to be a member of the official Palo Alto Camera Club itself to attend any of these events listed here on Meetup but you do need to be an official member of PACC to enter our competitions and compete. For more information you can visit pacamera.com.

Digital Competition: Open, Creative, Person Made, and Intimate Landscapes

Once a month, the Palo Alto Camera Club holds a competition night for paying PACC members. The public is also invited but may not submit photos to be judged in the competition.

Club competitions are a good option to improve your photography skills, get feedback from a judge, and get ideas from peer members. In addition to competitions, PACC also hosts lectures and workshops, tutorials, and small groups where members get together and discuss specific topics and/or critique each other's work.

The categories for this month’s digital competition to be held on Wednesday July 13 at 7pm are: Open, Creative, Person Made, and Intimate Landscapes.

The Special Theme for this evening is “Intimate Landscapes.” Intimate Landscapes are photographs that derive their subject matter from the smaller details within a larger scene. They are smaller scale landscapes that comprise the essence of the scene. The intimate landscape offers a more personal view.

If you would like to sit in on this month's competition, please go to
