Photo Critique over Breakfast

THE RULES

Submit two of your best images to me by July 18th.

THE REQUIREMENTS

--> TWO images, JPEG format, email me your photos at [masked]. I will send a confirmation email once I receive them.

--> Minimum resolution of image - 1280 x 800.

--> Submit your BEST work

--> NO Panoramas

--> An open mind !

THE CRITIQUING PROCESS

I need two members to volunteer as SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) in Composition, Exposure and Technique. They along with the group will provide feedback on these 3 qualities including Emotion and Impact.

And fear not! We are not going to pick on or insult your images - but if you are looking for some great constructive feedback, there is no better way to do so than in this kind of environment.

THE LOGISTICS

Since the projector didn’t work that well with the lighting situation at Panera Bread the last time, I have since then revamped the setup to include a couple of monitors instead.

I will also be uploading the submitted photographs on the meetup sight for people to download on their personal devices. This will allow people to view the photos on their tablets, smartphones, laptops etc. as well as on the monitor displays. That way, you’ll be able to view the details closely.

When you RSVP “Yes” to the event, please add in the comments “BYOD” if you are bringing your own device and “SME” if you want to volunteer as a subject matter expert.

If I don’t get enough people signed up as a SME, you may be voluntold. Based on all the works of art I have seen so far, I know that we have quite a few SMEs in our group. (PS: SMEs will also submit photos for critiquing).

------------------------------------------
We'll start PROMPTLY at 9:00.  Come early if you want to grab something to eat !

Hope to see you there!

    Erick, your comment about a photo not being a picture (or some such) until it is printed inspired me to print out some pix for family and friends to critique on a rotating basis.

    Thanks!

    Hi Nidhi,
    I can't seem to find your email address to which to send my files. I saw it the other day, and now I can't find it.
    Could I have it?

  • Erick C.

    Ill be adding a mat/frame (well a digital one) to the photos for critique. This gives it a gallery feel to them. :)

    I was looking forward to the meeting on 7/4 but it makes sense to reschedule to get a larger gathering. See you on the 20th.
