Welcome To The Stony Brook Camera Club
We're in our 48th 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.

Oct 26th: Ron Rosenstock - Fine Art Infrared Photography
Infrared does not pretend to be realistic; it is a tool that I can use to interpret the scene before me with new eyes. It reveals a marvelous world where blue skies are almost black, and white clouds float in sharp contrast to the sky. Infrared transforms vegetation into bright, shimmering foliage. Trees and plants dance against old stone walls and against a dramatic sky. Human faces take on an alabaster glow. Infrared is a new way to view the world.
Ron Rosenstock has been creating images of the world and its people since the 1950's. His work has had many incarnations from vivid colors to black and white, from the darkroom to digital, from large format cameras to full-frame digital, from early dawn to infrared dusk. His images are real, though real is hardly subjective. Viewed in objective terms, color is far more real than black and white is - if only because color is such a defining element of reality as experienced by the human eye.

Shoot a Master ... A Photographic Challenge
The challenge is to take an image from any of the masters in photography or paintings and to recreate that image making it your own. Images will be shown as part of our May 31 meeting. Makers will be encouraged to show the image of the master, and then their interpretation of that image. For the evening, we will ask the audience to pick the images they like the best and a small award will be offered to the winners. Clink HERE for complete information!!! (If you plan to submit an image email Rob DeRobertis with a note that you accept the challenge. We will need at least 20 members committed by Feb 1 to make this event a success.)
