One-on-One Feedback Night (6:30 PM EDT)
We will be conducting our first one-on-one Feedback night on the 27th of June, same place as our normal meetings, John Ward (Print of the year winner), Steve Director, Sue Swartzlander, and myself will provide the feedback on photographs for the members.
Our starting time will be as normal, arrive around 6:30 to start at 7:00.
We will have three tables set up where members can bring in their prints (2 or 3) for one on one review and discussion. Prints do not have to be 16x20 nor in mats. Members can rotate between tables and get different views and feedback from the reviewers. If you have a laptop that you can bring please do so and let me know if you are bringing one. The laptops are so that members who wish to bring in digital files may do so. We will have a few but it might be helpful to have additional laptops. Please bring your digital photographs in on a flash drive and in Jpeg format.
A fourth table / area will be set up so that we can have a group discussion on individuals photographs. I will begin by leading that group and invite three or four members to sit and present their photo for comments from the group. The reviewers will rotate that position during the evening.
This session is a bit of a "beta" session to see how things work best and what the members find most helpful, as such we can be fluid and flexible - experiment as we go along. For example if we need more tables we can do that.
The environment will also allow for a great deal of interaction between members and give us all a chance to get to know each other better while we review and discuss our photography. Feel free to share your photos with all members and get their thoughts.
As respects refreshments I will volunteer to bring in some items and am looking for another volunteer, please let me know if you can bring in some refreshments.
Please feel free to contact me, Jim Walczak. I am sure I have not addressed nor thought of all of the issues
