The Mitchell Camera Club judged photos Dec. 4 for our Dec. 6 meeting at the County Fair Banquet Hall. This month's category was "Events/Festivals." Next month's category is "Neon Signs."

This month the club discussed white balance. Many of the members brought their cameras and changed the white balance for indoor lighting. We also welcomed some more new faces at the meeting. We appreciate the use of the banquet hall and thank County Fair.
