Image Critique Workshop: NEW DATE/TIME Monday, November 20th @ 7:30 PM

Image Critique Workshop: NEW DATE/TIME
Monday, November 20th @ 7:30 PM

Because several members have signed up for both this workshop and the Betty Wiley workshop, now scheduled on the same date, we do not want members to have to choose, and have re-scheduled the Image Critique Workshop. We still have a few openings so if you would like to attend, please email Joan at beadnik2@gmail.com. And, yes, it is the beginning of Thanksgiving week, so give yourself a break from all that slicing, dicing, baking and come have some photography fun. If you have already signed up, no need to do so again.

Margo Bury attended this workshop a few years ago, and wrote a testimonial about her experience. She did a much better job of describing it than I could, so it appears here:
 
“One of the best benefits of the New Haven Camera Club is the opportunity to become a better photographer.  There are many ways that the club provides these opportunities, and attending workshops to learn new skills or enhance existing ones is one of the best.
 
The best part of our highly qualified membership is their willingness to share their knowledge. Bill Barnett is one of those generous top rated award winning photographers. He is once again offering to to provide individual critiques for images that each attendee of this workshop provides. Bill loads images each participant sent him into his computer to be projected onto a large monitor.  He opens the discussion by stating what he likes about each photo, what could have been done to have taken a better image, and what could be done to process the image to improve it.
 
That by itself is instructive enough, but, as they say – a picture is worth a thousand words!  He proceeds to SHOW you what it looks like.  For example when he says the image should be brighter, he brightens it.  If cropping would be the improvement, he crops it.  The original image is retained and he switches back and forth so you can see the change in the image.  By this time on the first image the group is starting to get pretty excited about the improvement in the image and chimes into the conversation. There are valuable lessons to be learned from your own work and the work of the others.  This is a workshop not to be missed.”

So, start going through your images and pick some you would like some help with. You can sign up for this workshop at a Camera Club meeting, or email Joan at beadnik2@gmail.com. Please include your name, phone number and email address. An email will be sent to participants on how to submit your images to Bill, and directions to the workshop site.
 
The workshop is free, but you must be a current NHCC member to attend.
