Photo Critiques & My New Gear

This Month is a Double Header:
Photo Critiques & My New Gear

APG Meets May 17th, 7:00–8:30 PM at The Lyndon House

DESSERT SOCIAL STARTS AT 6:30 PM

PHOTO CRITIQUES: Have an image you like but know it needs some enhancing? Or one you like but want to see how others feel about it? How about a scene that overwhelmed you, but the image isn’t quite cutting it? Now is your chance to see your image through the eyes of other photographers.

1) See how others view your images. What does it say to them? Is there more that can be done with it? You don’t have to give your name if you don’t want to. Just listen. We’ll be gentle. Promise.

2) Maybe you want to find a different direction to take your photo. Hear what other photographers would do if they were working on it. We’ll throw out all kinds of suggestions from our perspective and make those changes live.

MY NEW GEAR: Have you bought something unusual that you are finding useful in your photography adventures? Bring it and do a short demonstration. Time allowed will depend on the number of items that are brought in.
