Camrose Camera Club » Club Program

To assist the program committee in creating the club program, it has been suggested that club members fill in the CCC Profile Sheet.

If you have not filled in a PROFILE Sheet; take one off the tack board and give to Kathy Broen.

  • The Profile Information will tell us what interests you have, what you want to learn or share, Examples such as: astronomy, microphotography, macrophotography, black & white, taking portraits, wildlife, night shots, pets, people, copyright of photos, selling your photos, framing/matting, whatever your interests.
  • If anyone has any suggestions on what they would like to see for special projects or photography courses contact one of the programming committee members or  bring the information along to our Tuesday meetings. Tuesday meetings are where we discuss and setup the program for the coming months.

Special Projects for Spectaculars:

When out and about with your camera, keep in mind our special projects. You can submit your photos to be considered for inclusion for the Club Display or you can create your own static display with a topic of your choice.  These static displays will be set up at our annual Spectaculars. Bring in your selection of photos on CD or stick.

  • Pictures of small Alberta Towns, capture the character of the town (Donalda, Vilna, Duhamel, etc)
  • Silly Signs – take a picture of a sign that is funny
  • What is it? – pictures that people need to guess what it is – close up of an object
