About the Oakland Camera Club

Stereo photography — 3-D photography — is the marvelous craft of making pictures with the illusion of depth.

The Oakland Camera Club is a San Francisco / Bay Area organization of stereo photography enthusiasts. Join us at a club meeting to learn about the art of stereo photography and experience fantastic printed and projected 3-D photos.

The Oakland Camera Club was founded in 1934 and is a member of the Photographic Society of America. The Oakland Camera Club is a non-profit organization.

Monthly Meeting Date Change
posted December 13, 2017

Save the date! In 2018, the Oakland Camera Club's regular monthly meetings are moving from the fourth Tuesday of each month (except December) to the fourth Monday of each month.

Monday was always our preferred meeting day, but the Albany Community Center crowded us out and pushed us to Tuesdays. We have made arrangements with the Albany Community Center to reclaim a Monday meeting night.

Blu-Ray 3D Movie Share
posted November 26, 2017

Many Oakland Camera Club members are fans of 3D movies on Blu-Ray discs, viewed on our 3D HDTV sets. Together, our combined collections equal a significant library of popular, rare, and hard-to-find 3D movie titles.

Members, join our new 3D Movie Share List and add your titles! Instructions are on the page.

What's in a Name?
posted August 28, 2017

The name "Oakland Camera Club" is outdated. It doesn't describe who we are, where we are, or what we do. It's time for an update that will raise our profile.

At our August meeting we brainstormed names and came up with list of candidates. Members, please select your favorites from this ranked-choice online poll. We'll discuss the results at our September 26 meeting and select a finalist (bring your original name ideas that didn't make the list, too).

Next Club Meeting

Date:

Monday, January 22, 2018

Time:

7:00pm - 10:00

Location:

Albany Community Center, Albany, CA

Special Topic:

Creative

From the PSA: "The PSA definition of Creative is 'Altered Reality.' The image must obviously display a change in natural color, form, shape, or any combination of these three. Creative images are often montages (a blending or composite of multiple images). High Dynamic Range (HDR) images without further changes are not considered "altered reality."

Digital stereo images will be shown on the club's 3-D HDTV. Read about Preparing Digital Slides for details.
