Meeting: March 27th

Join us at 5:30pm in the Oak Room for Camera Academy 1 – Exposure – presentation by Wayne Bennett. This is the second session for Camera Academy 1 and this session will focus on the exposure triangle. Wayne’s presentation will cover what your camera sees, and how you can override what the camera sees (by factory default) by exposing manually to get the best exposure you can in-camera. Wayne will teach the audience how to expose manually by exposing for tonalities. Attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras with them to this session.

The General Meeting – Critique of Your Image continues afterwards and is a critique of member images so please bring images to the meeting you would like feedback on .

 Presidents Message

Welcome to the Orlando Camera Club where our membership encompasses all categories of photographers from novice to advanced and enthusiast to full time photographic professionals. We come from around the world with many varied  professions and photography interests. Some of our members are “snow birds”, attending during their winter stays in Florida and participating long distance while at their summer homes. One thing we all have in common is a desire to learn together and share our images, techniques and fellowship.

OCC hosts Competition Nights during even numbered months where images  are critiqued by Central Florida photographic and art professionals. Categories for competition include Beginner, Advanced, Monochrome and Creative. Education is a high priority and there is the Camera Academy 1 and Camera Academy 2 covering a series of topics for novice and intermediate photographers that meet before the General Session (we are currently revamping our offerings so check our club calendar for upcoming sessions.)

Monthly field trips, called Shootouts, are timed to coincide with competition themes, bird migrations, local events and member desires. Many of our members donate their photographic services to charitable organizations via our Volunteer Coordinator. Our Program Chair brings in some of the biggest names in photography for our monthly General Sessions. OCC’s advanced members present their specialties regularly at club meetings and are available before and after meetings to help with questions relating to cameras and post-processing.

Orlando Camera Club has a vibrant Facebook page for its members ( Facebook: Orlando Camera Club ). Here we share our creations, travel photos, and conversations on photographic topics. It is a 24/7 social community. As a member of OCC, we are also members of the Florida Camera Club Council (F3C.org). At F3C there are opportunities for further digital and print competitions, discussion boards, and a statewide conference that happens every few years.

Lastly, organizations thrive by mentoring those who will lead in the future. OCC’s offerings would not exist without the tireless efforts of our volunteers, past and present, who truly care about the success and growth of our club and its members. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your President and would love to hear from you at: president@orlandocameraclub.com!

Best Regards,
Julie Lee, President
2016-2017

P.S. If you are not yet a club member, please be my guest at one of our General Meetings, introduce yourself, and try Orlando Camera Club on for size.
