The MARS Photography Club was organized in 1985 as one of the original clubs of MARS Associates. The purpose of the club is to provide enjoyment to the members through photographic activities such as field trips and competitions, to upgrade technical and creative skills, to share knowledge and experiences, to provide photographic support to the MARS Star staff, and to develop friendships through common interests. Programs of photographic interest are presented at most meetings by either guests or members. These presentations and theme photo competitions are the primary activities at the meetings. Judges are either club members or invited judges. For more information contact one of the officers.
 
Meetings are held at Bemis Library

John Chapter presented a 28-minute DVD that he made, which includes sound and images, entitled "Roman Views, a Virtual Trip". The story presented on the DVD is an outgrowth of wondering about two original antique prints images that show views of late 19th century Rome Italy. The main image shows the Aqueduct of Claudius that was complete in 52AD. The second is an image of the Appian way.  This DVD movie was originally shown at the 2010 holiday meeting of the Englewood Camera Club and it was well accepted. The story illustrates of what can be done with today's photographic computer tools supplemented with internet images. OPEN
