Canton Camera Club

My wife and I both love to do amateur photography. Getting out and taking pictures of the the area has really helped to get us out and exploring and becoming more familiar with our new home.

A couple months ago my wife started looking for ways to improve her photography skills and came across the Canton Camera Club. We attended the January meeting, couldn’t do February, but became members at this latest meeting in March.

It’s a fun group that gets together once a month, they do photo competitions, they talk about photography and hold occasional workshops and outings. There are all levels of photographers, from brand new, to professionals. They work with everything from point and shoot cameras, to film, to DSLR’s and other digital cameras.

The group is occupied by a lot of retired people looking to develop their skills at taking pictures and being social, but the group is growing and includes some younger people as well.

My wife and I are both looking forward to participating in the competitions, try new things, getting feedback, and learning from other great photographers. Plus it’s a fun thing to get out and meet new people, especially if you’re new to the area.

For more about the club you can check out the entry on the Things to Do page, and checkout www.cantoncameraclub.com for more info.

  1. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always exciting to read through articles from other authors and practice a little something from their web sites.

    Hi–I am looking for information on what time your camera club meets–I see it is the third Tuesday of every month–at Harwinton Library–but can you tell me what time?

  3. Lynne, we meet at 7 PM on the second and third Tuesday of each month. Hope to see you there next week,
