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.

Workshop March 11th - Color and Composition by Ray Guillette
Time: 9am- 12 Noon at Norfolk Public Library
Limit: 15 members
The workshop will start with an audiovisual lecture on color as applied to photography with the intent of making attendees more aware of how color affects photographic images and contributes to visual communication. Topics covered are: the physical properties of color, color relationships, the psychology of colors, how color can affect the viewers perception of depth, time of day and its effect on color, the effect of weather and the direction of light on colors, and hints on maximizing color saturation in camera. We will then review these topics with images and answer questions from the attendees. The effects of color on composition will also be discussed.

This is an introduction to daytime long exposure (DLE) photography by New England-based fine art photographer Jürgen Lobert. DLE photography records 1-15 minutes of time in a 2- dimensional photograph by using neutral density filters. This creates unique and intriguing images of the world that we usually freeze in momentary exposures. Letting time pass during exposure converts clouds into bands across the sky, smooths waters to a mirror finish and can make people and moving objects disappear. The resulting imagery is otherworldly and strangely beautiful.
The following topics will be covered:
Why, where and when to do DLE Equipment
ND filters and holders
Exposing for DLE, expose to the right
RGB histogram Tips & Tricks
Composing and focusing on High ISO preview
Avoiding light leaks

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.)
