Wonderful Images With a “Toy” Camera

Tom Debiec, who is the invited speaker for the LCC’s next meeting this Wednesday, June 13th at 7:00pm, writes:

“Toy cameras are simple, inexpensive film cameras.  Unlike the latest digital cameras that feature almost unlimited control to the photographer, the simplicity and design of toy cameras cause distortion, vignetting and light leaks.  These defects are embraced by the users of these cameras who are able to use them to their creative advantage.

“For the past seven years, I have been using toy cameras almost exclusively.  In this presentation, I will explore the capabilities of these cameras and expose you to the work of the photographers that love them.

“Several of  my photographs are featured in the Expanded Visions show currently taking place at the Ware Center in downtown Lancaster.  My series, “The Kruger Deception” was featured in the Lancaster Lens show at the Lancaster Museum of Art and at the Infrantree Gallery.  My photos have also been featured nationally and internationally.”

2011-02-07 Camera & Manual Open Space Meeting

The February meeting of Lancaster Camera Club is going to be something a little different this month! You (yes, you) and everyone else in attendance will be presenting your favorite topics for the group, so come ready to share and to learn. Be sure to bring your friends and family members with new cameras as well, because this is sure to be a good meeting for everyone. Let’s have our camera manuals on hand as well, because there’s a wealth of information in there.

Our initial theme for the evening will be Camera and Manual, but the discussion can go anywhere from there. We’ll start out making a list of suggested topics from the group, we’ll vote to find the most popular, and then we’ll break out into 2 or 3 groups to discuss the top picks. After 15 or 20 minutes, we’ll come back together as a group and do it again!

This meeting could go anywhere, but it’ll be right where you want to be!

We’ll see you at Brethren Village Fieldcrest Room at 7pm sharp on February 7, 2011. I, John, will be your master of ceremonies, and I look forward to seeing everyone for this great night.
