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.

MAY 2019

THEME: Wide-Angle Landscapes

Monday May 13

Although Lightroom and Photoshop are the two heavy-weight players in the field of photographic post-processing, Eugene will be sharing some other options you may wish to consider. Tom will be taking a few minutes to give our new members a tour around the club’s website. Tom will then talk about the benefits and pitfalls of using a wide angle field-of-view. We will then be moving outside to practice. So bring your camera and your widest lens.

Saturday May 18

Our walkabout this month an opportunity to experiment with wide-angle photography. We will meet at the Lions Park by the Parkhill Dam to do some landscape shooting and then can move across to the cemetery and try some creative shots of the trees and headstones. Plan to be at the Lions Park at 10:00 am.

Monday May 27

Make your images easier for people to find, but tougher for them to swipe and use for their own purposes. Eugene and Richard will talk about Watermarks and Metadata. We will also be doing a C&C of our wide-angle shots (Flickr code pfccwide19). Paul Mennill will be treating us to some of his Favourite Photos.
