Membership Poll

We want the A3C3 to be better, and of course, that means we need involvement.  Please take a few minutes to complete our online poll so that we can improve our group. Go to our online poll here.  



The JULY MEETING is JULY 10 (SECOND MONDAY) at Mark’s house, 2104 Needham. 7-9 pm. Bring your favorite beverage and a snack if you wish. See you then.  They have a lovely garden and places to sit, so maybe think about portraiture using your film camera.



We will meet at the Corner Brewery on Norris Street in Ypsilanti at 7 pm on Monday, June 5th.  It will be a good time for a photowalk to Depot Town from the CB, so we will start there, and return for beer and conversation in the outdoor courtyard.

See you there!

May 1 Meetup

We will meet in Plymouth, MI on Monday May 1 at 7 pm for our monthly gathering. Plan on assembling at Kellogg Fountain in the town square. From there, we will do a photowalk and then gather at a place for some eating and drinking afterwards.   Bring your tripods! It is also International Commie Camera Day, so bring your FSU (Former Soviet Union)-made camera to shoot with.  See you there!



It’s Polaroid week!

Around the world, people are shooting their Polaroid and other “instant film” cameras.  SX-70, polaroid 600, Land Cameras, and Instax.  It’s all good.

Don’t forget folks, it’s Polaroid week! April 16-22. Shoot ’em if ya got ’em!


April 3rd Meeting

Our April Meeting will take place on Monday, April 3, 7-9 pm at Pizza House in Ann Arbor.  We’ll discuss upcoming events, summer plans, World Pinhole Day, etc.

Also, new film discussion, what’s your latest “new” camera, and other useful information, as always.


Want to know how to “shoot sprockets”?  You don’t need a Lomo Sprocket Rocket.  Learn how to load 35mm film into medium format cameras, such as the Holga, or Brownie cameras.



January 2 Meeting

First meeting of 2017

Our meeting will be held January 2, 2017 at Pizza House, on Church Street in Ann Arbor.  Start time is 7 pm, and meeting ends at 9 pm.  Bring your latest photographic items to show off!  If you had prints in the Homage to the Holga show, you can pick them up at the meeting, or contact Mark O’Brien to arrange a pickup at his house.

We will also be discussing the Post Card Exchange, ideas for upcoming shows and meetups, and other items as they arise.

If you have yet to attend a meeting, you are missing one of the most fun aspects of our group – sharing ideas, knowledge, and images.

See you Monday!
