Special Interest Groups

A number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) have been established to enable interested members of the club to further pursue their particular interests and passions. Current SIGs include the Nature Photography, and Creative.  

See the Calendar for the details. Groups may also utilize a dedicated Gallery to display their work as their skills develop through interaction with their fellow participants. 

Members are invited to discuss their interests with the SIG leaders (see the About Us page) and to Subscribe to the SIG NEWS in your forum of interest  to find out what is happening.

CURRENTLY ALL MEETINGS ARE VIA ZOOM (Location of Meetings: Camosun College - Lansdowne Campus, 3100 Foul Bay Road)
(see Calendar for room numbers)
See Campus Map


Nature Photography Special Interest Group (SIG)

Members of the Nature Photography SIG meet on the first Wednesday of each month to present and discuss their nature images and to learn from one another, all in the aid of improving upon their skills and abilities as nature photographers.

Creative Special Interest Group (SIG)

Members of the VCC Creative SIG meet on the second Wednesday of each month. The group has been established to explore the extension of photography into the realm of photo-based art. This covers anything that requires the photographer to do more than be in the right place, wait for the right moment, and release the shutter.

The techniques can include, but are not limited to;

  • creation of composite images from layers of other images,
  • digital editing using photoshop-type software,
  • elaborate set-up and staging prior to the shoot,
  • intentional camera movement and other blurring effects,
  • lensbaby, pinhole camera, multiple exposures, etc..

If going beyond traditional photography, based on an array of currently available tools and techniques, is on your agendas, the Creative SIG may be just right for you.

 


Mobile Photography Special Interest Group (SIG)

Members of the Mobile Photography SIG meet on the third Wednesday of each month to present and discuss their mobile images and to learn from one another, all in the aid of improving upon their skills and abilities as mobile photographers.

Mobile photography is the art of photography made exclusively using a smartphone or mobile device. It is non exclusive in its choice of subject matter and camera apps dominate the mobile photography experience.

It is estimated that more than 90% of the images taken this year will be captured on a mobile device. If this is of interest to you and you would like to join us, we meet on the third Wednesday of each month.
