What we offer

We meet the first Monday of every month throughout the whole year, and then 4 times a year, competition is held on the third Monday of the Month. We meet the whole year, not stopping for the summer months as some other Club will do.  View our scheduled meetings and events in our calendar or in the right side bar on our News page.     

Next Meeting:

August 6th

From 6 pm – 7pm: Mayslake Photo Opportunity!

Great photo opportunity before the August meeting. From 6pm to 7 pm we are planning to have personnel from the Forest Preserve of DuPage County take the club members around the Mayslake grounds and talk to us about the different Eco-systems they have.

At 7 pm: Competition Overview

by Ron Szymczak & Steve Ornberg

Ron Szymczak, competition chair, will take you step by step through what to expect at this year’s competition.

Steve Ornberg will talk about the best way to re-size your digital prints for competition using Lightroom and Photoshop and provide a tip for a free third party  Lightroom plugin that will make adding borders much easier.
