Welcome to the Port Franks and Area Camera Club Home Page

PFCC Enhanced LogoThe PFCC invites you to come and enjoy guest speakers, information sessions, Comment & Review nights, and Walkabouts.  Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of the month (except holidays) from January to November at the Port Franks Community Centre, 9997 Port Franks Road, upstairs in the Optimist Hall, at 7 PM.  Walkabouts are usually one Saturday morning each month. Our relaxed meetings are a great opportunity to meet other area residents who are interested in photography.

Our Goal: We are an organization dedicated to fostering the creativity of its members as they enhance their skills in the art of photography.  The Club will endeavour to generate an environment in which photographers can learn from one another, socialize with like-minded individuals and motivate its members to increase their knowledge and enjoyment of photography.

Our members come primarily from the Grand Bend and Port Franks area, but all are welcome. Here is some information on our upcoming meetings.

Monday November 25 – Revised

Tonight we will be having a lesson in Masking from Ralph Teeple. This is a useful technique for manipulating our images to create work for our theme of ‘Altered Reality’. Janette will introduce the topic of Altered Reality and Lynn D. and Eugene will be telling us about using Filters in Photoshop and Lightroom to achieve different photographic effects as well as other software options. Lyle Kittmer will present his favourite photos. This will be our last regular meeting until January 13.
