    This past week I joined a local photo group. I went on an outing with them for the first time Saturday, for those like me who are new to photography I would recommend it ( Even those who are not new may be a good idea). They have a forum, they are local and they do outings that get you involved and you have people around who can answer questions. I took 637 photos my first time out and will go to other outings. If your trying to get into photography finding a local meet up type group is highly recommended to get you going. I am not Mr.Social so if I can do it almost anyone can and is a great way to find others locally who have knowledge and have ideas for places to go shoot. I will still do a lot of things on my own but it gives me another option for getting out and taking photos. It was my wifes idea to look and see what was local and very glad she did. It is one more way to get informed and active.

    That sound like fun. Entertaining, interacting, learning, practicing. I may look for one around here, should be one somewhere, hopefully.

    Btw post one or two pictures once you have time.

    I joined the Lethbridge Photography club here a couple of months ago and it's the best thing I've ever done. I have so much fun every month - and my knowledge has increased tenfold just from talking with so many experienced photographers.

    This is the only photo from Saturday that I have uploaded anywhere, a computer forum I belong to were talking about the Ducks migrating back so I posted this pic there. I am still going through my photos and will post others when I can. Need to get my photos organized now, they are just done by the dates and taking so many now it is just a mess lol. I called this one Air Brakes.

    I went to google, typed in my city name with photography club and then with photography group and found a few including the one I eventually joined. I looked at meetup.com but was very underwhelmed and had a look at craigslist before I went to google, seemed the best way to find them in my experience. The deciding factor was this group holds events almost every weekend, usually ad-hoc ones but you have 3-5 choices every weekend.

    What is the name of the group? I am from Waterloo and would be interested in joining a group in the GTA. I love heading to Toronto to snap pictures.

    I was looking into joining the camera club here in OKC. I emailed with a few questions months ago and they never replied. Oh well...
