Photo Critique & General Meeting

Hi Photographers!

I'll be working on getting a photo critique and general meetings started as originally planned.

*** New addition, for this first photo critique meeting we are bringing in Steve Vento to speak about "How to critique" a photo so we will know how to do it ourselves in the future and he will critique photos that are brought in to this meeting.  

These are some of Steve's Professional Achievements & Recognitions:

2012 Distinguished Service Award, Professional Photographers of America

2005 President, Professional Photographers of Washington

1995 Photographer of the Year, Professional Photographers of Washington

Life member of Professional Photographers of Washington

*** Can we ask everyone to donate a few dollars $2 or 3 to help pay for his dinner. =)  Trust me, it WILL be worth the few dollars to learn from him!!

Please bring up to 3 photos that you would like to share and if you want a critique on the photo let us know and we as a group will share thoughts of what is great about the photo and what the photographer giving the critique would have done differently through their prospective view.  

This is to be a positive environment!  Offer the good, and offer how it could be improved or done differently.  There are no "BAD" photos, each photo is a learning opportunity!

If you RSVP yes and change your mind, please change the RSVP so others can attend.

New?  We all are in this group so come join us and make some new friends!
Don't worry about running late, there is always a conversation going on that you can jump in and join.

This is a no host event, however please consider ordering something even if it's just a drink. =)

    Only marginal room for improvement. Namely, something to make it easier for everyone to see peoples work.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
