Monthly photographic field trips
Trips are normally scheduled on Fridays about 9 times a year to local destinations, typically within an hour’s drive of Campbell, CA. These trips usually start in the morning and can last from 3 to 6 hours depending on the location.
Meetings are held in Campbell, CA in the Campbell Library Community Room on the afternoons (from 12:45 to 4 pm) of the first Friday of each month (subject to room availability) for two half-year sessions (from September to December and from February to June) and consist of a variety of events and activities including the following:
• Guest Lectures: At most meetings a skilled amateur or professional photographer from outside the club is invited to speak to the group for an hour-long program.
• Member Presentations: Members can be scheduled to present short talks (from 15 to 20 minutes). Possible topics include
• the technical aspects of photography (e.g., software, gadgets, field techniques, etc.);
• book, film, or exhibit reviews;
• showcasing a member’s own photographic work on a specific topic or destination.
• Photo Sharing: Members share photographs (both print and digital media) of the past field trip (or other places recently visited by members). These photographs are not judged but constructive comments are welcome.
• Monthly Themes: Monthly themes are proposed to the membership and the resulting images are presented at the monthly meeting and posted on the FFF website.
• Field Trip Planning: The FFF coordinators lead a discussion of the photographic expectations of upcoming field trip and the logistics of the trip.
• Announcements: Members share items on upcoming exhibits, workshops, events of photographic interest, etc.
