If you would like to learn more about photography, one of the most cost- and time-efficient ways to do so is to join a camera club and Oak Ridge has a good one!
The Camera Club of Oak Ridge has monthly meetings that alternate between presentations by some of the area most accomplished professional photographers and intra-club competitions with expert judging who teach photography during the process of evaluating the images. The public is welcome to attend an initial meeting for free, and a yearly membership cost is nominal.
The next meeting is January 13, 2015, at Roane State Community College at 7:30 p.m. The meeting room is visible just after entering through the front door across from National Fitness.
The meeting will feature a photo exhibition/critique/contest called â€œInventions and Dimensions.â€ This competition will focus on industrial, mechanical and technology subjects. These may be realistic representations or abstract perspectives (but still identifiable as fitting the theme) with or without creative post-development work.
