Photo critique night

Bring five photos on a flash drive, we'll project them and talk about what works and what doesn't. Professional photographers Nat Clymer and Loren Fisher will lead the discussion but we want everyone to participate.

Depending on how many people attend, we may not discuss every photo, but we have so far.

We learn by getting feedback and this is a great place to feel safe and show your work, bring your best or bring something that didn't come out the way you thought it would and we'll help figure out what could have been done differently.

Photos should be jpeg format, at least 1024 pixels wide and preferably 72dpi.

We have a room upstairs at the Stage House Tavern in Somerset. The room holds 30 people with tables, so we will limit this to the first 30 who register. If you want to be on the waiting list, let me know. You can purchase dinner and drinks.

There is a $10 fee for the critique night, which will be used as an extra service fee for the servers and cover Meetup.com expenses.

    Hi everyone. Tuesday was great and it was a pleasure meeting everyone and seeing such exciting work. I mentioned a few sites when I was running my mouth and thought I'd share them here for you to explore:

    http://photohistory.jeffcurto.com - great photo history 101 podcast slides and audio included. http://www.aipad.com - the "gallery showing" in NYC; some of the greats are shown there. Goes hand in hand w the last link

    http://capworkshops.org - a great organization in NYC that specializes in alternative photography. Great way to expose yourself to turn of the century (civil war era) mediums and classes. If you listen to the first 3 podcasts - you'll get a lot out of this.

    Great meetup, and very helpful feedback as always. But I still feel like that weird doll is watching me!

    maybe I should request a 1:1 "psychological dimensions of photographs" meeting?

    Sharon, this really sounds like an interesting course! If I were available on Thursday evenings, I'd register in a minute but that's the night I teach at Rutgers :-( I have gotten in touch with Joel to see if I can learn any more about him and what he's teaching so thank you very much for mentioning it last night!

    Sharon, He was a guest judge at Raritan Photographic Society. The meeting I went to was a few years ago, but I remember him as being very nice and interesting.

    Part 2 of previous post:

    Students will study a system called Reading Pictures and learn how to use it to enrich their aesthetic experience of all photographs including their own. Source materials from contemporary psychological research on creativity and aesthetic experience as well as semiotics and photographic criticism will be provided by the instructor. Students are encouraged to bring samples of their own photography to the course for discussion and analysis.

    I had mentioned last night about the Princeton Adult School class. Any thoughts?? The instructor is Joel Morgovsky. Here is the blurb:
    (in 2 parts because this post only allows a limited number of characters)
    154) PHOTOPSYCHOLOGY: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF PHOTOGRAPHY PhotoPsychology is the study of the relationships between psychology and photography across time and of the psychological dimensions of photographs themselves. Students will learn about the uses of photography in therapeutic settings from 1856 to the present, about the psychological mechanisms by which personal information becomes invested in photographs, and how viewers can encounter that personal psychological information through purposeful, systematic interaction with them.
