It’s the time of year where, just after our favorite Turkey-induced-coma holiday, shopping madness revs up for the holidays. A few years ago, American Express put together a promotion for its customers to support local businesses–and the promo became a tradition. Instead of heading to the local mall, or feeling your brain go numb at the computer screen, join Englewood Camera for a fun, personalized shopping experience! Whether you join us on Saturday or not, please come on by this holiday season to take care of the photographers in your life!

And, as if you need more reasons to support our local, small business, here are some reasons to shop small:

  • Personalized service from knowledgeable staff. Most of our employees are working photographers!

Photographing the Super Moon

with 2 comments

November & December 2016 bring us a great full moon photographic opportunity–during these months, the moon is closer to the Earth, and are known as “super moons.” While last night was the better time to watch the moon, tonight will be a great time to drag out your tripod and snap some images of the moon, and Englewood Camera has some tips for photographing it! If you want to wait until December, the best night to watch the moon rise will be on December 14th, giving you plenty of time to prepare!
