Image Critique Workshop


Image Critique Workshop
Monday, April 15th @ 7PM
Milford CT
Limited to 5 Participants

Do you want to learn how to improve your images, to make them pop and turn them into competition winners.  Then this workshop is for you.

Bill Barnett has once again generously offered to hold an Image Critique Workshop in his home in Milford. You are asked to bring several images on a flash drive. These images will be critiqued by Bill and the other participants in a positive way, suggesting ways that can improve the shot, make it pop and stand out in competition. You will learn not only from your own images, but also from images of other participants. Due to space constraints, and to give adequate time to each participant’s images, this workshop is available to only 5 participants.

To sign up, please email Joan at beadnik2@gmail.com. Please include your name, phone number and email address. Directions to Bill’s home will be sent to participants approximately one week prior to the workshop.

The workshop is free, but you must be a NHCC member to attend.

PSA Open Competition results

I have received the results of the latest (3rd) PSA Interclub PID (Projected Image Division – Open) competition and while PSA has not yet posted the cumulative scores through all three competitions, I have added our latest score to our second round cumulative score, and then did the same for the 5 clubs closest in scores to us.  We were in First Place after the first two competitions, and if my math is correct, we remain in First Place after the third competition!  I believe that when the cumulative scores are updated by PSA to reflect the three competitions held so far, we will be in First Place and ahead of the Second Place club – Paisley Colour Photo Club of the UK – by 6 points, and even more points ahead of clubs from Belgium, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Canada.  We had one image score an HM, and that was an image of Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, by Vic Krasenics, but almost all our other images finished with very good scores, while many of the other clubs receive both high and low scores on their images and that kept them from catching up to our club.  Images from other New Haven Camera Club makers in this competition were from Susan Naumann, Joan Balen, Denise Saldana, Lisa Cuchara, and Tom Cuchara.  There is one final competition in this PSA division and the images are due NLT May 1, 2013, so we may not have the competition results until late May or early June, but I will advise the club members through this blog of how we faired overall when the last competition is completed and the scores are tabulated.  Hopefully, we will finish the 2012 – 2013 competition year in First Place in the PSA Projected Image Division for our Group.

Reminder Monday -- Exquisite Waterscapes: The Art of Photographing Water by Mark Bowie


Monday April 8th -- Mark Bowie

Exquisite Waterscapes:  The Art of Photographing Water

Water is one of the most photogenic subjects of the natural world, a quintessential compositional element.   It opens views and doubles the landscape’s beauty through reflection.   Mark will cover field strategies and state-of-the-art digital darkroom techniques for producing incredible images of lakes and ponds, rivers and other flowing waters, waterfalls and marine coasts.   He will address scouting subjects, reading and shooting the light, photographing from the shore and from a boat.   He’ll discuss photographing water in all seasons and in combinations of its three phases, with tips and techniques on: shooting reflections, framing creative compositions with your full suite of lenses, the effect of shutter speed on moving water, macro opportunities, creating impressionistic waterscapes, photographing water at night and shooting multiple exposures for panoramas, HDR’s and layer masks.   Educational, enlightening and inspirational, this presentation is geared for both amateur and professional shooters who want to take their water imagery to new levels.

Bio
Mark Bowie is a professional nature photographer and writer.  His work has been published internationally in books, on calendars and posters, and in advertising media.  He has had three coffee table books published on the Adirondacks and is the author of two e-books on night photography: The Light of Midnight: Photographing the Landscape at Night and Night Examples.  He is a staff instructor for the Adirondack Photography Institute, leading digital and landscape photography workshops throughout New York and New England.
