Sun Lakes Camera Club (SLCC) is the largest camera club in the Southeast Valley. Our members share an interest in photography that reaches beyond the casual snapshot. We appreciate the power and beauty of a great photo and share tips and constructive critiques to improve our images. We welcome all shooting styles and levels of experience.

October Photo Subjects:

October 2022 Rotating Subject: Arizona Photo Travel. A Photo Travel image expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally. The image must be taken within the borders of the State of Arizona. Close up pictures of people or objects must include features that provide information about the environment or context. The image may be either color or monochrome.

October 2022 Special Techniques: Close Up or Macro. This is an image of small subjects or parts of larger subjects. Achieving sufficient depth of field is the challenge with this technique. In some cases, just using a very small lens opening might be sufficient but in other cases some form of focus stacking may be needed. The image may be color or monochrome.
