The Citrus County Camera Club, in conjunction with the Art Center of Citrus County, invites local photographers and anyone interested in photography to their monthly meetings.
Due to COVID-19, physical meetings are suspended but they have successfully conducted their workshops, photo contests and sharing field trip adventures via Zoom.
The Camera Club offers a wide range of hands-on workshops, field trips and photo opportunities as well as noted guest lecturers. In April, they will present three Zoom meetings available to the public.
The first will be “Tech Tips: Godox Flashes” at 7 p.m.
April 12 via Zoom. Larry Munne will instruct how to use three Godox flashes with on and off camera techniques.
The next lecture will be “Dicks Challenge” at 7 p.m. April 19 via Zoom. It will include a structured photo exercise that challenges participants to expand their photographic vision by submitting photos on a common theme.
The challenge invites the photographer to view their world through new eyes and submit un-
retouched images. This month’s theme is “eating utensils.”
The images are reviewed on a slide show for attendees offer commentary and advice.
The last meeting will be a Special Interest Group (SIG) at 7 p.m. April 26 via Zoom. These meetings offer participants the opportunity to focus on an area of photography of special interest to them.
This can range from camera operation to software or just “How did you do that?” Member’s questions are answered and discussed in an open forum.
This month’s SIG focus is on tips and techniques of “Still Life” photography, moderated by Kathy Obrien. Kathy will host a roundtable discussion and present examples from classical photography.
The club also offers small group field trips to local photo shoots keeping within CDC guidelines for safety. These are announced as they are scheduled.
The Camera Club also hosts five photo competitions a year. For information and announcements, as well as photos displayed in photo competitions, visit artcenterofcitruscounty.org.
