Welcome to a photography club blog for the Greater Groton, NY area.  At this time we are in the process of creating the club.

Our first meeting will be at the Groton Community Church on November 5, 2009 at 7:00 PM in Groton, New York.  If you have a camera, please bring it with you.  If you have the manual for your camera, you might want to bring that as well. We will be taking photographs the first night.  At this point we are thinking of having our meetings the first Thursday night of every month.

We invite all levels of people who are interested in photography to join us.  We feel that each of us can learn from each other.

At this point we have a few ideas that we might like to try, and encourage you to bring any ideas that you might have.  Some of the ideas include:
  • Photo Walks or Outings - For those who are interested we would get together to take photos in the same area, and learn from each other.
  • Speakers - Have people come in to speak about different topics relating to photography.
  • Photo Exhibits - An opportunity to display our photos
  • Critiques - An opportunity to learn what works and what doesn't work in our photography.  An opportunity to see how we can improve our photographs.

We also feel that there are many types of photography, and might want to explore some/all of them.  Here is a list that we came up with:

  • Black and White
  • Nature
  • Potrait
  • Night Time
  • Sports/Action
  • Street 
  • Macro
  • Architecture
  • Wedding
  • Still Life
  • Children
  • ...
We hope that you might join us, and look forward to meeting you and hearing your ideas.

We hope to see you there.
