Have you ever wanted another opinion on your photograph? What could I do differently to make this photo better?

The Smyrna Chapter of the GNPA is excited to have Joe Boris spend the evening with us providing feedback and a constructive critique of images submitted by our members.

This will be a great learning experience for all. As Joe provides feedback on each image, it will give you insight on how to look at your photos differently with an evaluative eye. Hearing a different perspective can help you make slight improvements in your shooting and post processing techniques.

All current GNPA members are encouraged to bring up to 6 printed images (no more than 3 entries per category). We invite members from all GNPA chapters to join us for this fun evening of learning and competition. We also invite guests to join us but you must be a member to enter photos in the competition.

A 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Honorable Mention will be selected for each category as well as a Best in Show for the overall winner.

Our esteemed judge, Joe Boris, has been a dedicated photographer for the past 43 years, the last 36 as an Atlanta studio owner serving the U.S. advertising industry.

Shooting around the world for major corporations and advertising agencies, Joe’s passion for adventure has been continuously stoked by his travels to new destinations, to create images that capture his own sense of discovery in service to a story.

Joe served as an Adjunct Instructor of Lighting, first at the Portfolio Center and then at the Art Institute of Atlanta (as an ‘invited pro’). He has also been a guest lecturer at Creative Circus/Atlanta and various camera clubs in Georgia and Florida, and gives occasional workshops on various photographic skill sets.
