What I Did On My Summer Vacation (September)
All you need to do is bring some prints or digital images of what you did during your summer vacation and we can talk and mingle and share stories. It's our welcoming to the new season and gives the old and the new members a chance to meet and mingle during a relaxed evening. No judges, no image shows, no pressure.
Suggestions for how to take better pictures (October)
This self-described workshop will be presented by one of the club's master photographers Bob Gates. Good opportunity to pick his brain for his trade secrets!
Night Over The Northeast (November)
This event has an admission fee of $10 for SCC Members and $15 for the public.
Exact change or check made out to Syracuse Camera Club only accepted. Limited seating.
This widely heralded presentation is based on
Mark Bowie's ongoing project to photograph New York State and New England at night. He shares the thought processes and techniques used to produce spectacular nocturnal images of the region’s mountains, woods, waters, cities, villages and coasts. He covers: equipment considerations, determining nighttime exposures, focusing in the dark, “painting” with artificial light, photographing fireworks and lightning, long exposures, multiple exposures, timed intervals and time lapse sequences. He discusses shooting exposures only seconds long to eight hours, with tips on photographing the landscape in relation to the stars, moon, planets, meteors and other celestial objects. He also covers innovative processing techniques. Experience the awe and wonder of the Great Northeast under the Light of Midnight.
Mat Cutting (December)
Joe Inzalaco from Commercial Art Supply will present a workshop on Mat Cutting. Joe will discuss matting prints and the mechanics of creating your own mats. Joe will have a live demonstration using a cutter and materials.
Competitions are usually held on the third Wednesday
of each month and are judged by experienced photographers from Syracuse
and Kodak Ambassadors from Rochester. For competition rules,
