This Show & Tell Workshop will be at the Darkroom Gallery.
This may mean a longer drive for some, but it will make it possible for those in the Essex and Williston area to attend. The format will be the same as previous Show & Tell Workshops.
Show and Tell Workshop Theme: (optional)
Interpretation of the theme is completely up to you. PLEASE READ RULE AND FILE PROCEDURE CHANGES BELOW.
How our Show and Tell Workshops work:
Feel free to just watch and learn, or if you're more adventurous, we'll have a projector on hand for you to "show and tell" us about your photos. For example, you could choose to share the story behind the photo, tell us how you edited it, or ask for edit advice...whatever you want to share or not share is up to you!
1) Don't be mean.
Anyone sharing may also optionally opt-in to receive "no hurt feelings" constructive critique and/or optional edit suggestions from our Pros.
NEW: 2) Don't debate or argue.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and feelings! Especially since appreciation of a work of art is so subjective and personal. One person might love an image or idea and another might hate it. One might have an idea to improve it and another might disagree. That's fine, as there is never a single right answer. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So even if you disagree, with someone else, please simply let it pass, instead of debating it. Debating it will not change anyone's mind and it just wastes everyone's time and could hurt feelings.
How to Show and Tell your photos:
SIGNIFICANT PROCEDURE CHANGE! PLEASE CAREFULLY READ BELOW!
If you'd like to show your photos, please bring UP TO 6 photos (saved as JPG files) on a SD Card, MicroSD Card, USB hard drive, or Thumbdrive/USB flash drive/USB Flash key.
More information on readying your photos/videos for the projector is available at: http://www.meetup.com/VTPhoto/pages/Ready_files_for_the_projector/
NEW: YOU MUST create a folder named, "SHOWTELL" or delete all other files from your drive/card as it causes too many delays and wastes too much time.
NEW: ONLY THE FIRST 6 PHOTOS ON THE DRIVE/CARD OR IN A FOLDER NAMED "SHOWTELL" WILL BE SHOWN.
Sorry, there just isn't enough time to look through other folders on your drive or to search for the correct photos.
NEW: We are not responsible for showing anything you don't want shared.
It is 100% your responsibility to ensure you haven't left any files you don't want shared on the drive.
NEW: Zero Tolerance.
If you fail to follow above procedures your drive/card will be set aside and you won't be able to present this meetup. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Alternative way to share photos:
If you cannot load your files to a SD Card, MicroSD Card, or USB device please upload your files to the Meetup group 48 hours in advance of the meetup and message Steve Mermelstein (https://www.facebook.com/usrbingeek) via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/usrbingeek) so he knows to download and get the files ready for the projector. If for some reason you have trouble with the group upload, please feel free to send your pics to Steve (https://www.facebook.com/usrbingeek) via Facebook Messenger (https://www.facebook.com/usrbingeek).
Laser Pointers welcome
Please also feel free to bring a laser pointer (if you have one) as you'll find it useful for your presentation and for offering critique or edit suggestions.
