Maybe you got a new camera last year and are still trying to figure it all out. Or maybe you are just new to photography and want to learn some of the basics in photography. Whichever category you fall in, why not come join us on January 9, 2016 from 9:30am-12pm at the JN Long Cultural Art Center in Cleburne as we talk basic photography and what all those symbols mean on your camera. Whether new to photography or more experienced, you’ll pick up a thing or two that will help you further your photography skills. As the saying goes, if you stop learning, you stop growing.

Cleburne Camera Club showcases our club at the Celebrate the Arts Festival Saturday November 7th

Many thanks to Laverne Pyle, Norma Stephens, Bob Force, Julie Robinson, and Henry Bogusch for manning our booth. Of course our booth wouldn’t have come together without the support of Micki Nellis, Alden Nellis, Jim McHale and the rest of the CFCA organization. We showcased photos from club members, some old cameras, handed out brochures, and save the date cards for our 2016 contest. It was great to visit with fellow club members and swap ideas for future programs. Bob Force shared a desire to lead a program on still life photography shooting a wine bottle, grapes, and cheese. It was determined that the program should be named Sip & Shoot! Should be a creative class… Ha Ha!
