Monthly Wine Social and Critique: Blue

Each month, 15-20 photographers of all levels get together to discuss each other's images with emphasis on composition.  The beginners learn from the pros, the pros learn from each other and we all have a good time with wine/beer to boot.  Join us for at Vino on the Landing in Renton for a Monday evening for our monthly Wine & Critique Social.


The color blue must be the main focus of your image.  This can be the actual hue or implied.  Don't forget that you can also use your white balance to create a cool image that can allude to certain emotions.  Be creative.

Still life photography is a demanding art, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with compositional skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. Knowing where to look for propping and surfaces also is a required skill.

RULE:  All images should be taken during the month prior to the event

Bring your 5 images on a flash drive, SD card or CD.

There is usually a waiting list on these meetups.  Please do not RSVP and not show up.  Honestly, cancelling an hour before the event is the same as being a no-show!  Preference will be given to those who have donated to the club during the current year and/or have not no-showed past Vino events.

It takes a lot of time, effort and money to keep this club going.  We ask for an annual $20 donation.  If you have not donated in 2013, please consider contributing $20 or any other amount by CLICKING ON THIS LINK or going to the meetup page and use the link on the left side of the page.

    Hi Steve,
    No need for "still life." That was a misprint holdover from the previous month.

  • Steve J.

    The description on the MeetUp site for "Blue" gives guidelines for images with that color, but in a following paragraph it gives guidelines for "still life photography". Is this critique on images that must have blue in the theme AND also be a still life?
