Individuals interested in improving their photography skills are invited to participate in Camas Camera Club meetings and assignments.
The meetings are open to photographers of all skill levels, ages 16 and older. Individuals are invited to bring a couple of recent images to the meetings.
The club was officially founded by Kirsten Muskat in June 2011, after she and a few photographer friends had met sporadically along trails, workshops and in local homes.
Muskat, who now serves as club president, said the meetings are enjoyable and informative.
“It’s fun to see everyone’s images, watching people’s skills grow, seeing some really creative and brilliant work, and we have some great banter,” she said. “We have short, informative photo talks every month, and I got some great pointers and ideas on how to present slide shows, new photo editing software and High Dynamic Range photography.”
The group of photo enthusiasts range in age from 30 to the upper 60s, and they include beginners and professional photographers. They all use digital cameras, but many of them have film backgrounds.
