November 12: Roundtable Photo Critique

Aaron-225KPAC members are asked to bring  two to three photo prints for our Round Table Critique.  8X10 is a good size. We’ll pass the prints around the table and ask for comments on what went right; what are the strong points; and what might have been done to improve the image. Everyone gets to participate in this small group format. It is also an excellent excuse to get your photos into print form and note which ones translate well from your computer monitor onto paper.

Everyone is encouraged to bring in some of his or her work. Newbies and the chronologically enhanced are all welcome. Be brave. Come & show off your stuff. Learn how sometimes a small modification can take a good photo to a great one. Venue: Henry Grube.
