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 Sept, Oct, Nov and Dec Competitions.

Feb 2nd - A. Cemal Ekin - Digital Printing Workflow and Paper Choices, Sponsored by Red River Paper
Digital Printing Workflow and Paper Choices Creating printed work is both a challenge and a great reward for photographers. Printedphotographs are not limited to the museum or gallery walls, they can be proudly presented on the walls of your home or those of art lovers. Printing workflow has potential pitfalls that can be avoided with reasonable ease once they are understood. The paper selection is one such variable. This presentation will cover the overall printing workflow and particularly focus on paper choices. Participants will get a chance to see the sample prints up close, handle them to get a feel for the substrate and the surface. There will also be door prizes.
I retired from Providence College as Professor Emeritus of Marketing after 36 years of service there. Teaching has been a terrific experience for me and has influenced how I share what I know about photography. I have been involved in photography for over 60 years, but switching to digital photography around mid 1990s has proved to be a very fertile ground for me. I write about photography to sharpen my understanding of it. I have very eclectic interests in photography from salt and pepper shakers to architecture, from landscapes to flowers, from people to macro photography. I photograph my experiences, I photograph life and what grabs my attention. Recently a collection of my photographs of dried orchid blossoms gave birth to a ballet Orchis. It was performed first in 2013 and then again in 2014 featuring my photographs as an integral part of the performance. I learned the tools of this new world, Photoshop and Lightroom and enjoy sharing what I know in presentations, workshops, private mentoring and tutorials. I have had nine solo exhibits in three different states, issued limited and open edited folios, and published photo books and magazines featuring my work. My prints can be found in public and private collections in the USA and abroad. Please visit my website www.keptlight.com to view my work and learn more about my views on photography.
