Photo Review

Workshop

Saturday, December 12, 2020 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW TIME FOR THIS MEETING.

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your images from your fellow members. 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 photos, upload up to three JPEGs (sized to 2000 pixels on the longest side) to the current peer review entry on the PhotoContest Pro website before the deadline.
(If you need help with that, check out the information available on the CCC website under Competition Info.)
Hope to see you at the Zoom session on Saturday. Watch for the link in your e-mail inbox.

Photo Review

Workshop

Saturday, January 9, 2021 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

We're scheduling this photo review before the next competition, which gives you an opportunity to get some last-minute feedback on anything you plan on of entering. With a bit of help from your fellow members, you may be able to avoid some issues that the judge may find fault with. (It may be a "competition," but we're all in this together, right?)

Of course, this photo review will also function as usual, where you can just show us some photos, tell us a bit about them, and get some usual friendly feedback.

For more information, please see the description on the home page of the CCC website.

Hope to see you there!
