Monday April 18, 2022.

Hi All,

First, we will be resuming in-person meetings at the Lansdale Public Library starting April 18th. Mask wearing will be suggested.

Second, the Member Assignment for April will be a little different. The assignment will be to show photographs that use Visual Metaphors to create mood, feeling, or emotion. For this exercise, you are encouraged to look through your archives of photographs for examples of metaphors and feeling. Before selecting your images for this assignment, take some time to think about what emotions and feelings the photograph elicits from you.

About Lansdale Camera Club

In January 1935, four photography enthusiasts decided to form a movie camera club. They called it The Amateur Movie Club of Norristown. During an April meeting, they discussed the new color film, "Kodachrome." Women were admitted in 1938, and the first 16mm sound movies were shown. As 35mm photography increased in popularity, the club began to focus on print and slide events and education.

In 1952, to reflect changes taking place, the club renamed itself to the Norristown Camera Club. Shortly thereafter, in response to increased population into suburbs and a need for a more accessible and modern building, it relocated to Lansdale. In 2002, the club appropriately renamed itself to the Lansdale Camera Club.

Today, the club continues to grow and adapt. Events focus on many types of photography, including slides, color/black-and-white prints and digital technology. The club's biggest accomplishment recently was to win 1st prize in slides and 2nd prize in trade-processed prints at the Ray O'Day competition - a competition among camera clubs in the Delaware Valley.

The Lansdale Camera Club continues to foster a club atmosphere that meets the needs and varied interests of its members.
