Take your Photographic Skills to the Next Level

Established in 1938, the Light & Shadow Camera Club is an excellent forum for expanding your vision as a photographer.  The club was formed for the enjoyment, mastery and furtherance of photography through cooperation and good fellowship by teaching and learning new techniques.  Members of all ages and skill levels share a common interest and enjoy learning through friendly competition.  By sharing your work, have fun learning from some of the club’s most highly experienced digital photographers, image editors, and printers. Join us as our guest to see for yourself how this process can inspire and assist you. The Club is serious about photography and open to new talent.


Due to Covid19 all meetings are virtual until further notice. If you would like to participate, or just watch, please contact club president Bob Berry for call-in details:


A Photography competition is held on the Fourth Tuesday of each month. The printed and projected images are presented anonymously and reviewed by a paid judge.  The categories vary per month, though the Pictorial and Monochrome categories are always available.  The emphasis is on feedback and the judges will critique each image.  At the end of the judging winners will be announced. Winners in each category are eligible for a larger monthly inter-club competition held by our parent N4C organization. 

Prospective club members are invited to bring 2 projected images or prints to submit for judging at their first 2 or 3 visits. Bring these images on a memory stick and specify which categories you would like to enter (pictorial, monochrome, creative, photo journalism, travel) and give them to our projectionist, prior to the meeting.
