Due to poplar demand we are offering second feedback session.
Need some inspiration to get out and make new images this spring??
This is a chance to receive gentle, but honest feedback on your images!
We’re offering a 90 minute, online Critiquing Your Photographs session, Thursday evening May 11th, 7:00pm – 8:30pm CDT. ANYONE’S WELCOME! This session hopefully will fire you up to make some great images this spring. You’ll share some previous years’ spring images, and we’ll provide interactive feedback to give you ideas to consider as you’re composing new images.
STRUCTURE of CRITIQUING SESSION
It’s designed for 10, or less, participants, who will experience 10 live, online critiques. Individuals will submit 4 images, but are guaranteed to receive 3 image critique, while watching the others receive theirs. Depending on the number of participants, the number of critiques per person may be increased using a lottery system. The sessions are recorded live and become available OnDemand for the participants.
DISCLAIMER: The comments we make about your images are just opinions. There’s no right or perfect answers, just opinions based on our experience. The images are yours, and you can choose to accept or reject our comments. We want to add to your growth, if we can, but not put you down. Our critiquing usually involves mentioning what we like about an image and then things that might be tweaked for the next time you’re in a similar situation. Many times we’ll engage you in a little dialogue about your image and shooting experiences. Our total intent is to create a learning experience for everyone. Know that this is not about competition, but rather an opportunity to learn from how we originally shoot in the camera.
INSTRUCTIONS regarding the uploading of your images and sign-in procedures will be provided after you’re registered. Basically, you’ll upload jpg images to our website; they’re imported into Lightroom for the critique; and Zoom is our online program. It’s an easy and painless process!
