Sharpening Photography Skills at NECCC

Members of the Flagpole Photographers Camera Club attended the 70th Annual New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) Photography Conference held July 17-19, 2015 at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA. Over 900 attendees gathered this year at the conference to hear speakers on a wide variety of photography related topics and to sharpen their skills during the extensive 3-day event.
