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.
Jim Christensen (NY) is a photographer, teacher, and speaker from the New York City area; a member and past president of the Westchester Photographic Society, NY; founder of the annual Croton-on-Hudson Fall Arts Festival, NY; and was the Artist in Residence at Acadia National Park, Maine in the spring of 2015. His work has been featured in galleries and other venues in NY and CT, and spans landscapes, night-scapes, wildlife, people (in the studio and on the sidewalks of NY), flowers, and abstracts. In addition he designs and builds one-of-a-kind mixed-media frames, and has a deep technical background in digital imaging theory and software as a result of his career as a research scientist at IBM were he created firmware and image processing software for one of the world's best (and first) digital colorimetric cameras (in the 1980's and 1990's).
