Regular Club Meeting: Critique "This is Me"

  • Wednesday, September 25, 2013
  • 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Sparta Ambulance Building, 14 Sparta Avenue, Sparta, NJ
Our first critique of the season features the theme "This is Me."
Members are encouraged to send or bring in 2 prints and/or digital images that will best represent them as individuals. These could be considered an "interpretive self portrait."

During the meeting, the critique will be led by club officers, but regular club members will be called upon to offer up their own comments as learning how to critique well is a step forward in taking better photographs. 

Please email your images to info@spartacameraclub.org no later than Monday, Monday, September 23, 2013 at midnight. *Please put "This is Me" in the subject line without the quotes. Please also indicate in the body of the message, if the image should be in the Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced class. All entries with no specification will automatically be placed in the Intermediate class. 


If you wish to enter prints in the competition, please bring them to the meeting on the night of the competition.
