Say ‘cheese’! Area camera club growing

What makes a prize-winning photo? How do you reduce glare? How best to capture a misty morning? These questions, and more, are likely to be heard at a meeting of the The Eastern Kentucky Camera Club. The club meets every second Thursday of each month, at 6 p.m., in the Paintsville Recreation Center to discuss and critique the work of club members. Members critique photos based on seven basic factors: focus, clear subject in the photograph, composition, lighting and exposure, color, what makes the photograph different or special, and emotion and mood. The cost to join the club is $20 for a single membership or $25 for a couple for a yearly membership. The club has members from as far away as Hazard and the Ashland area. You can view photos of members of the club on or you can also visit Eastern Kentucky Camera Club on Facebook. The next meeting will be held on November 13 at 6 p.m.
