Upcoming Meetings & Events

Program Meeting — Second Tuesday of Each Month

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 – 7-9 p.m. at Tracy Gee Community Center
Our first program meeting of the year focuses on critiquing your photography using the “Feldman Method,” a critique method used to look at art work in general, not just photography. Our presenter will be Todd Marshall-Closson.

There is a lot more then just ‘making’ pictures if the professional photographer is going to be successful. They must keep up with the latest technology in both camera systems and accessories. They must keep up to date with the ever-changing business practices if they are to profit from their image making and they must constantly market their services if they want those profitable assignments. But, most important of all, the professional photographer must learn the discipline of critiquing photography if they want to improve their image making capabilities.

In this workshop, you will learn about the four fundamental considerations when critiquing photography. We will discuss the differences between snapshots and photographs. We will cover how to judge a photograph based on its technical merits, the impact the photo has, and composition.

Learning how to critique photography is a very important discipline and this workshop will help you build the skills needed.

Print Competition — Fourth Tuesday of Each Month

Tuesday, February 28, 2011 : 7-9 p.m. – Tracy Gee Community Center

Join us for our monthly print competition. HPS members may bring up to two total prints in their respective group (bronze, silver or gold – new members begin in the bronze group). All members may enter the monthly Special Assignment but keep in mind that doing so still counts towards your two total prints.

This month’s Special Assignment theme is “Silhouette.”
