Image Critique And Discussion Evening
posted by Ian Lewis in Club Meetings
Last Wednesday was a fascinating evening wasn’t it!
This was the interactive session when we all had the chance to be photographic judges. Several brave souls submitted images – several being carefully chosen by their authors as not being completely perfect – so that we could discuss amongst ourselves how to improve them! So we looked at composition, straightness of horizons and/or verticals and then made suggestions such as ‘Why not get rid of that intrusive branch (or plant or even tree)?’ (does anyone other than me feel a little guilty when cloning out people??). We went on to discuss lighting, colour, tones etc. And in this session the photographer, of course, was able to join in the discussion – novel idea eh – author’s right of reply!!
A really useful evening for making us all look carefully at our images don’t you think? Many thanks to all those willing to put their heads (and photos) on the block!
