I belong to The Photography Club of Cape May and we have a lot of fun while learning the ins and outs of photography. The best way to learn anything is practice, practice, practice, and there's lots of that going on with PCCM! On our Facebook page monthly challenges are posted to give us inspiration to take pictures. We can post our photos with information about the lenses and settings we used to get the shot, it's always great to get input and positive comments from our fellow photographers. It's also a place to learn and grow our skills by posting questions, and getting a lot of opinions and help. I highly recommend joining a club involving your favorite hobbies as a way to learn and perfect your craft.
Here are some photos I've taken at meet ups we've held through the years. I enjoy the enthusiasm and encouragement our members provide when we meet. It's always a fun time. The photos below have been taken over the last 2 years with my Nikon D3100. I am enjoying learning from the good and bad photos.
Meetings are held monthly where we have photographers with experience and expertise in specific areas share their photos and techniques with us, our organizer, Dottie Rogers, is a wonder when it comes to convincing photographers and artists to share at our meetings, along with organizing meet ups and photo walks to learn by doing. We are so fortunate to have her as our leader.
I took this photo in my front yard, it's July's 2014 super moon. The club got together for the August Super Moon on the beach in Cape May Point to share tips and have some fun shots of each other and the moon. They are so inspiring and generous with their knowledge.
I really am fortunate to be a part of this creative group of photographers, it is a lot of fun to share your love of something with the like minded.
Learning is my favorite pastime! I hope I've inspired you to join a club and share your talents!
