San Luis Obispo Camera Club

Photography the Fun Way

Enjoy the camaraderie of people with a common interest! Whatever your level of experience, if you are interested in photography you'll probably enjoy our activities and members. We have a good time while learning from each other. See some of our member's images on the Photo Gallery page.

Our club is a non-profit organization devoted to photography as a hobby. Membership is open to all who have an interest in photography, no matter what your level of experience. We welcome digital as well as film photographers.

Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the 2nd Thursday of each month (except December) at the Guild Hall (formerly the Grange Hall) in San Luis Obispo.

Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. Come to a meeting and get acquainted!


Coming Soon - November Program

Five Minutes of Fame

November 8, 2018 at 7:00 pm

5Minutes

At our November 8th meeting, three members will claim their Five Minutes of Fame with brief presentations on a variety of subjects:

Peter Boonisar
Will be doing a presentation on in-camera Double Exposures.  The Olympus OM-D E-M1II allows you to see the first exposure in the viewfinder during the composing of the second image. This cuts down on where to place the second exposure and it is fun, too.

Bruce Easton
How I spent and photographed 2 days and nights in New York City. If you haven't been to New York City I would recommend to anyone that they try to spend at least one day there. It has to be one of the busiest s cities in America with a million and one photo opportunities.

 Yael Korin
The Central Coast Photographic Society had called for and presented, in June-July 2018, the exhibit titled B&W and one selective color.  In preparing for the exhibit I have experimented with various options of colors and techniques. As a result of this ongoing process I came up with several dozen images that I put together in a slide show that I call “an etude in B&W and one additional color”.
 
 

Coming Soon - November Field Trip

Dia De Los Muertos - Day of the Dead

Saturday, November 3, 2018
10:00 am to 12:30 pm

Mission Plaza San Luis Obispo, at the corner of Chorro and Monterey Streets

Meet at the bear fountain at 10:00 AM to watch the start of the processional. After the processional enjoy mariachi music, traditional dances and poets. On display will be arts and crafts and traditional altars to remember lost family and loved ones.

This is a great opportunity to photograph all the color of this traditional Mexican holiday that focuses on friends and family members who have moved on to the other side.
