Evening Image Critique

  • April 3, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This will be a small group of photographers (don't worry, there will be one most months).

An opportunity to show up to 5 (and no more than five!) of your images in a comfortable and supportive environment, over a glass of wine and pizza, with a group of like minded photographers who won't just say "That's nice dear".

Well they may say that; and in addition they'll ask you to describe what you were trying to achieve, if you thought you got there, and you can seek supportive, comments and critique to help in improving your work.

All attendees will get a guide to how to critique images and to guide the artist to improve their work.

    I thought it was a good meeting too. Thanks Graham for hosting it. I find that the close reading of and detailed, critical discussion of a few photos to be very helpful in developing the ability to see. I agree with Scott's comment about somehow controlling the amount of time at the meeting. It is a bit like editing photos, i.e. you have to decide what to include and what to discard, not an easy task. Another formatting suggestion, which I learned at another venue, is to have the photographer remain silent while others begin the commentary. Then have the photographer join the conversation. I like this because it tells me what people see and I can compare that to what I thought I was seeing. Just a suggestion!! I look forward to the next one.

    So how are the pictures being shown? I don't have a lap-top to share the photos, so are prints okay?

    A great event with nice people! Very well organized thanks to Graham. The honest feedback was most welcome, so thanks to all. Only suggestion: Perhaps a 10 minute timer for each person to keep it even paced. Looking forward to next event with this group!

    This is a great format for honest and intelligent feedback. I learned a lot from the different perspectives of the other participants, especially when they disagreed over a particular photo. And the company and pizza were good, too!

  • Scott F.

    Looking forward to this. As we are "Projecting" images, are we to bring our laptops/tablets? Would it be easier to have just one laptop and we each bring our photos on a USB stick?

    March 26, 2013

  • Robert P.

    looking forward to it

    March 13, 2013

    • Graham B.

      That is not required. I would point out though, that you didn't show for the last two events you signed up for either. There wasn't money involved but those places could have been taken by someone on the waiting list.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
