March 7 Meeting

The March 2016 meeting will be held at Pizza House on Monday, March 7 at 7 pm.  There will be a bunch of freebies to give away, thanks to the Ann Arbor Kiwanis, and Tom Nighswander. We will be announcing the Homage to the Holga group show, which will happen in the fall.


Bring your shots to share, your latest camera find, and whatever else is related!

Member News:

Heather Gardner has some of her photographs exhibited in the Scarab Club in Detroit.  The opening was this past Friday, and some A3C3 folks made it to the exhibit.

Robert Beech has been chosen for an Artist-In-Residency engagement by the National Parks Arts Foundation. This spring, he will be shooting wet-plate images at the Gettysburg National Battlefield. His role will be to do that as a reenactor/living historian, interacting with public as much as possible.  Congrats to Robert!

Nerd Nite

From the Nerd Nite FB Page:

It’s Media Mania Month at Nerd Nite Ann Arbor! We’re focusing in on the life after “the death of film” by exploring the process behind and the art created with non-digital photography with historic camera expert Ross Orr. We’ll hear from Martin Thoburn, an interactive filmmaker who finds endless ways to expand his video-based art beyond the screen. Andy Ross might know more about microphones than any person to ever speak into ours – and he’ll be telling the story of the impact of mic amplification on modern music. Join us for a deep dive into audiovisual awareness, plus drinks, laughs, and a spin on a vintage 35MM Carousel projector.

When: Thursday, February 18, 2016, doors at 6:30 pm, talks at 7 pm!
Where: LIVE, 102 S First St, Ann Arbor
$$$: NO COVER! Courtesy of the Ann Arbor District Library!!
Ross Orr is a long-time A3C3 associate, and one of the founders.  I hope a bunch of us can show up and pelt him with film canisters (kidding!).   It looks like a fun evening, so let’s show up and shoot it on film!

February 6th meetup

On Feb. 6th, we had a meetup at Matthaei Botanical Gardens — a perfect day in early February, and 8 people showed up.  Some of us shot Polaroids, Impossible film, Holgas, a variety of 35mm and 120 cameras, and even 4×5.  If you haven’t been to one of our meetups, you are missing out on cameraderie (yes, I meant that), being able to see a variety of film cameras and formats, and talk about photography.    If was a relaxed and fun 2 hours inside a very beautiful and serene setting. Oh, and it was warm.
