Welcome

Welcome to Charlotte Camera Club! We are a growing, active club of photographers spanning all ages and skill levels. We offer a fun mix of opportunities and ways to participate.

Our meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month except the months of November and December (no second meeting those months).  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m. We meet at St. John's Episcopal Church at 1623 Carmel Road, in Room 205. Members and guests are invited to arrive a little early to socialize before the meeting begins.

Winner, Award of Merit

PSA Nature Division Round 3

She has presented programs and workshops for NANPA's 2015 Nature Photography Summit, N4C's Annual Conference, CanAm Photo Conference, Mike Moats' Macro Photo Conference, and Unique Photo's Expo in NJ. She also speaks to local and regional camera clubs and organizations in the Southeast. Through New Life Photos, Jamie leads workshops and photo tours throughout the Southeast and markets her work through exhibits and art shows. Her goals as an instructor are to encourage, inspire and help people develop and grow their skills, connect with their subjects and see beyond the obvious so they can discover their own visual voice.

If time permits, Jamie will do a short presentation titled: A Short Look at Long Exposures

 

Long exposure photography is all about learning how to stretch time. Whether you're looking at a few seconds or a few minutes, long exposures have the potential to transform a seemingly ordinary scene into something special. Having the right tools and knowing how and when to use them (and getting out to practice) will add another dimension to your photography. This program will cover the basic tools and steps to follow for successful long exposures. Jamie will discuss equipment and techniques and provide ideas and situations to be on the lookout for long exposures.
