Cortney Jackson, a professional photographer and photography instructor, will be doing a critique of member photos. She will be giving us feedback on ways that we can improve our work, and all of us can learn from her expertise, even when she is talking about photographs other than yours.
When considering what images to choose, consider your own needs. Have you ventured in a new area, such as flash or portrait photography, and want some feedback on how it’s going? Are you entering a photo competition and want to know if your images are ready to show? Are you struggling with sharp focus and want some insight on how you can better achieve it? Whatever your needs, select images that will help you learn from Cortney’s comments. Not everyone brings their best work to a critique; sometimes they bring problematic images, to get the advice of an expert on how to achieve their goals.
To make this an engaging and meaningful session, please select 3-5 images of your work, and save them on a flash drive in a folder with your name. Cam Miller will collect the flash drives at the beginning of the meeting and copy all of the images into one location for use during the critique. Your flash drive will be returned to you.
We look forward to seeing you — and your images — at the meeting on the 26th!
