FEBRUARY 26, 2013

The Bridgewater Photographic Society met on February 26, 2013 with 28 members present.

It was evaluation night. Teresa Alexander Arab gave a presentation on Critiquing Photos. Her presentation included the topics:

  • Technical Aspects:  e.g. Is it in focus? If not is it intentional?
  • Composition: e.g. Use of framing, Are there elements to frame the subject or are they distracting?
  • Emotion/Story:e.g. Do you like it? Why or why not?
  • What Is Good Feedback? e.g. If you want 3 different opinions on your photo, ask 3 different photographers.
  • What to say? e.g. Don’t be afraid. Silence is NOT helpful.
  • Receiving Feedback e.g. Ask a specific question. Don’t take it personally.

Evaluation night: one or two prints each.

Competition: Urban and Photojournalism 1 print and 2 digital images.

Chris King, valuable long time member and former president is moving to Cape Breton and will be sorely missed.

Refreshments were provided by Doris Eagles and Charles Brown.

The next meeting, March 12, will feature the Silent Essay Competition and a presentation by guest speaker Wally Hayes.
