|ABOUT US||UPCOMING EVENTS||ANNOUNCEMENTS|
St. Mary's County Camera Club had its first meeting on November 2nd, 1998 in St. Mary's City Maryland. The club's purpose is to "...promote photography as a hobby, providing a forum for exchanging knowledge of the subject and inspiring amateur photographers toward improving their art."
We normally meet Wednesdays as follows:
First Wednesday: Lecture or workshop at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center, at 7PM.
Second Wednesday: Photo critique at the Pax River Naval Air Museum in the back building, at 7PM.
Third Wednesday: Competition at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center, at 7PM.
Here's a map to the Higher Education Center, with the rooms we most often use.
Annual membership dues are $25 per individual, or $30 family. Membership is required for participation in competition and elections. Visitors are welcome at all meetings.

We will be creating macro & abstract images using oil & water, liquid soap, reverse lens mounts, and mirror prisms. Bring your camera (it's user manual) and your creativity. This is going to be fun!
