Theme: Tools from the Past

Tools can be anything, large or small, used to do any kind of job. The topic will give you an easy and wide range of subjects to choose from. The trick will be to present the tool in a way that will move the observer. Work at presenting your tool in a way that will tell a story or create a feeling of nostalgia (or possibly relief that you don’t have to use that thing anymore).

Workshop

Workshop

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:45pm

Northside Library

Replacing our old "Innovative" competition category will be a new one called "Abstracts and Altered Reality." During this workshop, several of your fellow members will be helping you prepare for competing in this new category by providing tips on capturing abstract photos with your camera and on creating "altered reality" images using software. Even if you don't plan on entering this competition, this workshop will provide you with some good tips for composing eye-catching photos and using editing techniques you may find useful in other aspects of your photography.

Peer Review

Workshop

Saturday, March 2, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Northside Library

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your images from your peers. Want some suggestions on how you might improve an image before entering it in a competition? Having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting, composition, or editing? Want to understand more about why a judge may have scored an image as he or she did? Then you’ll find this casual and supportive meeting helpful. And, if you choose to join in evaluating the work of others and contributing your thoughts, you will likely strengthen your own picture-taking skills. Members of all skill levels are welcome, and of course you’re welcome to just attend the meeting and observe.

If you’d like feedback on your images, bring up to three TIFFs or JPEGs ( sized to 1080 pixels on the longest side) to the meeting on a thumb drive.
