Lakewood Ranch Digital Photography Club

The Lakewood Ranch Digital Photography Club is for anyone who has a digital camera and wants to produce quality images and or videos, instead of ordinary snapshots or typical home movies. Our membership includes those just starting out in photography as a hobby, all the way to the very experienced and well published professional photographers.  We offer monthly meetings designed for all levels of photographic understanding. 

We offer training which includes class instruction on how to get the most from your camera, compositions and how to use your computer for post processing.  We also have many focus groups which offer learning and critiquing in specific areas such as landscape, portrait, macro and, more recently, video and black & white photography.  We also participate in numerous, friendly nearby photographic competitions.  

Visitors and guests are welcome at regular monthly meetings, usually on the third Wednesday of each month.   Click on "CALENDAR" in menu above to find the next meeting date.
