The Photography Club of Sun City has several special interest groups (SIGS) to further our “Friends Helping Friends” objective. The SIGS meet members’ specific needs and are open to all members with no additional charge, except for studio materials when used. These like-minded people share information and experience regarding equipment, techniques, and post-processing.

Black and White
Black and white has long been a favorite medium of fine art photographers due to the emphasis on space, form, line, and texture. In this interest group, we critique the works of 20th and 21st century black and white photographers as well as discuss our own photographic works. 4th Thursday 1-3 p.m. Contact Tom Mills, millstom73@gmail.com for information.

Canon – R Mirrorless
This is a forum for Canon mirrorless camera users to learn and share their knowledge about the capabilities of Canon mirrorless cameras, lenses, and accessories. Field trips are also planned. We meet the 1st Tuesday of every other month at 3:00 PM. Contact John Burrack, john.burrack@me.com for information.

CLIC (Creative Learning Insights Community)
To create a community of photographers who want to explore their craft through creative discovery, experimentation, post processing and peer review. Camera or cell phone users who have taken at least Photography Fundamentals 100 will benefit more from this user group. It will be helpful if you have experience with settings beyond auto and some post processing. At each meeting, we’ll go through submitted images and all group members will be expected and encouraged to provide constructive feedback to the photographer, suitable to their skill set level. 4th Monday 2-4 pm. Contact Leslie Joseph, lkjoseph1@aol.com or Dale Methven, dalemethven@aol.com for information.

This group is designed as a next step for Fundamentals students and other non-experts. The focus is on good composition, not monthly competition themes. Critiques of assignments and/or shooting expeditions may be included. 2nd Thursday 1-3 p.m. Contact Tom Mills, millstom73@gmail.com for information.

This is a forum for Panasonic Lumix Camera users to learn and share their knowledge about the capabilities of Panasonic Lumix Cameras. 3rd Wednesday 3:30-5 p.m. Contact Freddi Hoffmann, freddih@sbcglobal.net for information.

Phone Camera
We focus on various functions of Phone Cameras. This is an informal forum for Phone Camera users to learn and also share their knowledge about the capabilities of their camera. The group determines topics of interest for future meetings. Plan to share a photo taken with your phone with the group. This group meets on ZOOM on the first Wednesday of every month at 2:00 p.m. Contact Sue Flynn at sueparkerflynn@gmail.com to be added to the group email list.
