Coffee and Critique

One of the best ways to learn how to take better images is to look at your work as others see it. At this meetup, we will go over everyone's work, one picture at a time, and talk about what we like and what we think could use improvement. Please bring along two of your images on a USB flash drive. To save us time on the day of the event, please include your name in the file, e.g. Ahmed1.JPG and Ahmed2.JPG.

Venue information:

We will meet at The Change Initiative building in Al Barsha. Coming by metro? This video will show you how to head over to the venue from the Sharaf DG station. Traveling from the direction of Internet City? Watch this video. (You can skip ahead 1:20 if you are coming down Sheikh Zayed Road from the direction of Jebel Ali/Abu Dhabi.) Heading down SZR from Dubai? Watch this video if you don't mind paying for Salik, and this one if you want to avoid the toll.

We strongly suggest you scout out the location beforehand if you are unsure about finding it. If you need help, call ِِAmr ([masked]), but please note that the event starts at 7 PM sharp, and we may not be able to answer calls after that time.

    The other thing we mentioned, is sweating your assets to push the boundaries of its capabilities... Making the most of what you already own, instead of falling into a GAS syndrome...

      The event is free to attend. The only thing you need to bring is two photos. We won't have time to go over much more as a group, although you may be able to informally show something to others in the break.
