Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups, otherwise referred to as SIGs, are member groups that share common photography interests. The groups focus on a variety of topics to improve skills such as: using cameras, post-processing software, and ways to improve and present images.

SIGs are independent and meet with the guidance of a “Program Facilitator” whose job is to schedule meetings and generally lead the topic of the day. Each member is encouraged to actively participate in the monthly meeting’s topic. The principle purpose of any SIG is to function as an information exchange forum for a wide variety of photographic interests and experiences.

For new members, the SIGs are an excellent way to become acquainted with other Club members who have similar interests while at the same time learning more about photography. SIGs offer a comfortable environment with friendly, knowledgeable and helpful people. The SIGs are member-driven activities based on common interests. Join one and experience an in-depth look into the world of photography.

    Wildlife: Here, wildlife photography is the principle area of interest and how to capture images in digital form. This group is non-structured and topics vary widely from meeting to meeting. Discussions center on how to take interesting images of various birds, mammals and creatures that are part of our everyday lives, travels and experiences. Presentations of the type of camera equipment one might need for wildlife photography are a frequent topic of discussion as well as methods needed to capture animal subjects in situations that allow for quality imaging. At each session, members with selections of photographs they have taken, are presented and discussed with regard to how and when they were taken, any specific information regarding camera settings and how the image might be improved.
