Camera Club Holding Meetings via Zoom
We hoped to return to holding in-person meetings in early 2021 but restrictions due to Covid-19 have delayed a return to monthly gatherings. Instead, we are holding monthly meetings via Zoom. Meetings include sharing entries to recent competitions, side shows and instruction videos. Members are sent meeting invites to the Zoom meeting. If you are a member and have not received meeting information, please contact Membership Chairperson Carol Nowicki.
We look forward to getting back together when it is safe to do so, but in the meantime, keep shooting! We continue to compete in competitions through the Photographic Society of America, our own monthly competitions and slide shows.
Next Meeting May 13
Our next virtual meeting will be held on May 13 at 7 p.m. We will share the results of our monthly slide show theme, "Flowers." We expect to share recent submissions to the Photographic Society of America (PSA) Club President David Kilgore will make a presentation of Long Exposure Photography: The program will address why we would use long exposure, the equipment needed, camera settings and determining shutter speeds. Members will receive an email invitation to the Zoom meeting in early May.

The COASTAL CAROLINA CAMERA CLUB generally meets monthly the second Thursday evening of each month, except July, at 7:00p.m. at the Shallotte Presbyterian Church, 5070 Main Street, Shallotte, NC. Click here for map. Visitors are always welcome. Our members are currently meeting via Zoom but we anticipate returning to in-person meetings later this year.
Our mission is to encourage members to share their diverse talents, teach new techniques and expand and enhance their skills. Members are encouraged to participate and serve on the various committees, attend field trips. workshops and programs.
Our monthly agenda normally consists of brief business items, presentations by guest speakers or club members, and a slide show of member photos. Photographic instruction tips, equipment displays and print competitions are also offered at some meetings.
Near-term Field Trips
We are considering a Field Trip to Sylvan Lake Iris Gardens in mid-May. This would be a field trip that would be outdoors and we could easily social distance. The only difference is we may not have a lunch as we have in the past.
Please stay tuned for more information.
Membership is open to anyone in the area who has an interest in photography.
