Join the MV Camera Club from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 15 in the North Creek Board Room, 20125 Arrowhead Road for the February meeting with special guest, club founder Eric Long. Long will present “Getting the pictures you envisioned from your camera.” Attendees are encouraged to bring pictures to share.

Eric Long is a professional photographer working for the Smithsonian Institution since 1983.  He is currently a senior staff photographer for the National Air and Space Museum.  He has been a resident of Montgomery Village since 1992 and began free photography lessons in his home in 2010, eventually starting the MV Camera Club in 2011.

Long’s presentation will focus on understanding your equipment to take the best photos possible. If you’ve ever been frustrated that your camera isn’t giving you the pictures that you had envisioned, or thought that it’s probably the camera, or type of camera and not the user, you don’t want to miss this presentation.

Camera manufacturers want you to take the best pictures possible, much of their sales rely on customer satisfaction with their product.  Long has found that most people using cameras or camera phones know very little about how they function and the split-second decisions the camera makes to ensure a good shot. 

If you are in this category, come to the lecture and leave with an understanding of your equipment, and how you might ensure a good shot without relying on your camera making decisions alone. Bring your camera and some examples of pictures that didn’t come out the way you had intended.
