Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club
We're in our 47th year, promoting enjoyment and proficiency in all aspects of photography through education, by mutual exchange of knowledge and experience, and by promoting a broad appreciation of our natural environment.
The Stony Brook Camera Club meets Thursdays at 7:30 PM, except holidays, September to June, in Franklin, MA (see About Us | Contact Us/Directions). Our meetings feature competitions, speakers, image studies and discussions of general interest. We also sponsor a number of image-taking activities all year (see Calendar above). Anyone is welcome to attend and experience what we are about, although participation in competitions and our many activities requires membership (see the Membership menu item in the Main Menu above).
We hope you enjoy this site and your time with us all.
The Slideshow to the right features winning images from our September, October and November Competitions.

Dec 8th - Compositing - Expand your Creative Space - Jim Christensen
Want to create images with more impact? Jim will demonstrate the power of compositing to completely change the mood of an image, and open-up your creative space to images that mix your imagination with your digital captures. He'll show examples and explain how to create them using Photoshop and filters from Topaz Labs. This talk will encourage you to imagine and create images with more impact.
