Our Mentor Program is available for new members to help acclimate them to club activities and camera functions. This program is conducted and is most effective during one of our many Field Trips, were you can pair up with one of our seasoned members for help & guidance.
The club meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from September to June, with an occasional bonus meeting in some months. Meetings are at 7pm. in the Hope Christian Church community center, 211 Montowese Ave., North Haven. (click the Directions & Parking tab above for the detailed directions).
The first Tuesday & (second Tuesday when scheduled) meetings of the month is instructional by an outside lecturer or member. The Third Tuesday meeting is a competition meeting where members submit prints and images for scoring and evaluation by judges. See the Up Coming Programs tab for exact dates and events schedules.
We have 3 group levels of competition, starting with:
B Group - for members whom consider themselves beginners or entry level.
A Group - Is for our more advanced members with more advanced photographic and post processing editing skills.
Mentors Group – This group will be for those members that are much more advanced shooters or professional shooters or very highly skilled at photo editing or for those members whom haven’t competed in the past for the fear of dominating the competitions and overshadowing the less advanced members.
Conducted by members or outside speakers on a wide range of topics such as Adobe Photoshop, composition, landscapes, depth of fields, controlling shutter speeds, producing slide shows with music, portraits, working with layers, mounting prints etc.
Scheduled at various times of the year to provide interesting photo ops at various locations such as the Yale University Campus, Bronx Zoo, NYC, Mystic Seaport, flower shows, etc.

Painting with light – Using a light to “paint” your subject at night, it is called painting with light because this is what you are actually doing while taking the shot – painting the subject with light.
