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. In order for the critique to be useful, please bring images you believe have some merit, rather than just snapshots of random scenes.

To save everyone time on the day of the event, please bring JPG images under 7 MB in size and include your name in the file, e.g. Ahmed1.JPG and Ahmed2.JPG. Please note that your pictures may be uploaded to Meetup/Facebook after the event for others to look at, and to help us create an archive of past submissions.

Venue information:

The Empty Quarter is Dubai's best photography gallery, and is located on the podium level of Building 2 in the DIFC Gate Village. It is a short walk from the Emirates Towers metro station, and visitor parking is free after 6 PM. If you need help finding us, call the EPyC hotline ([masked]), but please note that the event starts at 6:30 PM sharp, and we may not be able to answer calls after that time.

    It was an honor to meet Roland and Sabrina Michaud. To be critiqued by them and to listen to Roland's take on good photography is priceless. Thanks Epyc

      Sorry for that... Actually we did spend 15min before the event trying to correct the colors and apparently that was the best we could achieve!

    Hi all. This will be my first meeting too, and I just wondered, is there a photograph theme? Or is it open? Thanks, and looking forward to meeting you.

    February 7, 2014

    • Nitin

      There is no theme; you can bring any photos you like that you believe have some sort of artistic merit to them.

      As of present, the event is full, but spaces are likely to open up closer to the date of the event for people near the top of the waitlist.

      February 7, 2014

    • Steve A.

      OK, thanks for getting back. Steve.

      February 8, 2014

  • Steve A.

    Ah, I've just noticed I'm on the wait list. Does this mean the coffee and critique is full? Thanks.

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.
