Subject: [friends-1046] New Meetup: monthly photo critique

Announcing a new Meetup for Bend Photographers Group!

What: monthly photo critique

When: January 12,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $1.00 per person

Todd's house
check your email the morning of
Bend, OR 97701

This is what I hope will be the first of many monthly photo critiques. Bring prints, your laptop, or pictures on a USB stick or SD or CF card so I can display them on my laptop (large format chromes are OK too). The group size small both to facilitate discussion and to ensure everybody can fit in my not exactly capacious living room. I'll email out directions to my place by the Galveston bridge the morning of the meetup.

I'm not fond of rules, but in this case there are three of them.

1) If you want to come you have to chip in $1 to help cover the group's monthly Meetup fee.
2) Pull about ten shots from your work for people to look at. Know what feedback you'd like to ask the group for. We don't wanna go through all 2,000 pictures on your memory card to find the three you care about; do that ahead of time and copy them off to a separate folder or something.
3) This is a constructive criticism session open to all levels. Both images and commentary should be conducive to learning. I don't like to put my foot down but I'll kick you out if I have to.

There's no set theme or topic as part of what makes critiques valuable is exposure to different kinds of photography as well as different shooting styles. However, what you bring is up to you. It's cool if you want to concentrate all your images on a particular area or swap emails with folks with ideas about what to bring. After all, this is all about user generated content; I'm providing the venue and facilitating, though I'll put up some of my own images if time permits.
