Print Night!

  • February 21, 2013 · 6:30 PM

This will be the first in what I hope could become a regular event. As most of you know, I believe that it is crucial as photographers to discuss our work, to really talk about our images, to learn what sets a great image apart from simply a good image. If your desire is to evolve as a photographer, then please join me for an informal evening of sharing your work for review and discussion. Bring along no more than 4 printed images, any size, matted or unmatted, preferably not framed. If you don't have any images to share, you are welcome to come and share in the discussion. Images can be color, monochrome, or creative. There will even be snacks!

Limited to the first 40 people who RSVP. The location will be at a private residence in Vacaville, the address to be given via email only to the people who RSVP.

    Thanks Jan and Steve for being great hosts. Enjoyed seeing the works of others and getting comments on mine. Great time and a good learning experience. If this is going to be a quarterly thing, maybe we could have a sign up for viewing and critic section. Everyone would get a chance over the year to present and more time could be spent looking at each photo.

    A little insight into Jan...she likes the unusual! Really, don't we all like to be unique.
    Taking a photo all the way through the print process should be a photo you are very proud of. "Work It Baby"
    Jan, can we bring food or drink to help off-set the cost?

    Hi Jan,
    Do prints needs to be of any specific category like nature, landscape, portrait etc.? or anything will do which can reviewed.

    January 18, 2013

    • Jan L.

      Prints can reflect any subject, it is open as long as the image is not offensive in any way.

      January 19, 2013

  • Jane H.

    Can't wait

    January 18, 2013

  • Marcy

    Do you have a minimum size suggestion? Also, does it have to be a print, or can it/they be on an iPad or laptop?

    January 18, 2013

    • Jan L.

      Marcy, any size will work, but smaller sizes like 4x6, 5x7 would be enhanced by using a mat for presentation. Maximum size could be 18x24, outside dimension. For this venue, we will not be using iPads or laptops.

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.
