The Carolina Camera Club welcomes you to the world of photography in the Western Carolinas.
We hope to help members with their photography via instruction, critique and camradery.
Here, we will post occasionally with information we hope you can use.
On Tuesday, June 10, 2014 , we all gathered at the Tryon Fine Arts Center in Tryon, NC to view members pictures taken over the past year. They will be on display until July 10, 2014. Please see the gallery of pictures on the home page of our web site for a peek of what is there.

We also enjoyed a catered meal from Delightful Dishes on Rt 176 in Inman, SC. Many people commented that they enjoyed it very much.
The Carolina Camera Club will be holding its next 2013 field trip on Saturday, May 11th at Big Creek in North Carolina.
This is yet another opportunity to get out and shoot with other club members.
Big Creek is a part of the Smoky Mountains just off of I40 on the North Carolina/Tennessee state line. It is a very photogenic stream running along an old forest road with easy access to the stream.
Let’s meet at 9 AM in the Big Creek parking lot. It should take less than 2 hours to get there from the Columbus entrance to Interstate 26.
Bring a lunch with you as we can easily spend the whole day there.
I also plan to bring a pair of hip boots so I can wade in the stream to get those “unique” shots.
Directions to Big Creek from Asheville: Take I40 to the NC/TN border. Take exit 451 and drive past the Waterville hydro-electric plant. Follow the brown park service signs past the intersection of Mt Sterling Gap and into the park. Drive to the end of the road to the parking lot.
There are restrooms at Big Creek.
Contact Chuck Bishop at (864) 313-9573 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your RSVP and any questions.
The Carolina Camera Club will be holding its next 2013 field trip on Saturday, April 13th at Pearson’s Falls, Saluda, NC.
This is another opportunity get out and shoot with other club members. For those looking to increase your skills, think of them as mentors in this outdoor classroom.
The Pearson’s Falls property has a variety of easily accessible wildflowers that should be in full bloom.
Pearson’s Falls is owned and operated by the Tryon Garden Club. There is a $5 admission fee to the falls which goes toward the upkeep of the falls. This can be paid at the entrance.
I’ve made arrangements to have the gate open to us at 9:30 AM to let us beat the crowds and get the best light.
Some items you may want to bring, besides your camera, is a tripod, any diffusers and deflectors you might have, flash unit with off-camera cord, your polarizing filter, water and lunch.
For directions, please visit their website at: www.pearsonsfalls.org and click on Directions.
A tip: If the weather looks like it will be inclement (light rain or mist), please try to make an extra effort to be there. Waterfalls are best captured in those conditions. Macro photography can also be excellent during high overcast or misty days.
On occasion, the property around the falls is not opened when raining.
If it is a light rain or mist, I know of a little known spot nearby that has wonderful display of various wildflowers.
Also, the garden club would like a list of members who will be coming. Please RSVP to me if you might be coming by Wednesday, April 10th.
