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.  (February Banner Image is "Madera Canyon" by Karen Busack.)

The Next General Meeting will be in the Navajo Room at the Sun Lakes Country Club at 6:30 pm on February 2nd. Our guest speaker will be Isabel Guerra Clark. Her presentation will be on "Enhancing your photography with plug in's."

A bit about Isabel:

"After retiring from Nephrology Medicine in December of 2015, I joined the Phoenix Camera Club and the Arizona Camera Club council and now I am Program Chair of both.

 I enjoy photographic competition, at the national and international level, both in the digital projected image and also in print making.

Photography challenges me to continue learning not only with respect to how i see the world but also creatively with Photoshop and the many plug-ins that we have at our fingertips.

Isabel’ s images have been published by Audubon Photography Awards, National Park Trips, Arizona Wildlife Views ,Institution of Civil Engineers, Ranger Rick, Jr.,  Photo Wonders, Images Arizona,etc

I have been honored in winning best of show in print at the ACCC 2019 and 2022 competition, 2 best of shows at the Photographic Society of America 2021 competitions , 1 National Park Trips competition winner in Wildlife and 1 in Night Skies , Calendar cover for Arizona Game and fish, calendar page for Pinnacle Peak Park and others."

The Next Competition Meeting will be in the Navajo Room at the Sun Lakes Country Club at 6:30 pm on Thursday, February 16 th. Projected images and digital copies of print images must be submitted to the competition website no later than 11:30pm MST on the Monday before the Thursday competition.

February Photo Subjects:

February 2023 Rotating Subject: Bridges. This is the fall 2023 ACCC rotating subject. There is no definition or restriction. The image may be color, monochrome or may be creative.

February 2023 Special Techniques: Portrait. A portrait is an image of a living person in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer. The image may be either color or monochrome.
