Photo Critique!!!

You've broken all your Christmas toys, put on 10 pounds from all that food, have a terrific headache, still, from over celebrating on New Year's Eve, and are wondering what to do with yourself. Get back on the track to great photographs with a bit of friendly advice! Bring your three best photos (or your three favorites) to the Photo Authority secret hideaway by the Metro tracks behind the WU North Campus, and we will rip them to shreds, er, I mean, offer helpful tips as to how you can improve as a photographer! Bring your original, unaltered camera file (RAW, if possible) and your massacred, I mean, improved version, hot off the altar of the Photoshop gods and we'll get to work on them. Put the 6 files (as shot and edited) onto a USB drive in a folder labeled with your name and the date of the event (example: Marcia_Anastasia_Garcia_Smith_McDougal_Kouri_Chang_Al-Jihad_14_01_07 ).

Size your finished jpeg to 1920 pixels or larger on the long side and bring your sense of humor, as it's going to be a fun and educational experience!!

      We are three short blocks north of the Delmar Metro station on Hodiamont. I'll even give you a ride home after if you wish.

    How do I bring images? They will be jpg. On a disk or drive?

    December 22, 2013

    • Richard D.

      Edwin, bring them on a small USB flash drive...that's what most people do.

      December 22, 2013
