Next Mini Clinic - May 12 - Jerry Parks

Criteria and Words of Wisdom from Jerry Park:

Think about the moment you took the photograph that will be critiqued.  

What was the scene saying to you? 

How did it make you feel?  

What steps did you take, either at the site or in post processing to demonstrate/express/communicate those feelings?  

If you are able to articulate those things, then the critique will be directed at how well you accomplished what you were trying to do.  

Without that background info, the critique, in a sense, will be just about the technical proficiency demonstrated or how I, as a single person with my own prejudices, react to it.  The latter, in my opinion, is of little value.  Whether I “like” it or not should not matter any more than the opinion of anyone else who simply likes photography.

Overview: The Mini-Clinic is a focused workshop on a variety of photographic topics held each month for BPG members.  Examples of past topics include Photoshop, Lightroom, image critiques and lighting techniques.  Meetings generally occur the second Thursday of each month, unless otherwise stated (See calendar). 

Please email the Mini-Clinic organizer with any questions.
