    .

  • Practical - Getting Our Eye In

    March 1, 2018 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
    The Richard Herrod Centre, Foxhill Rd, Carlton, Nottingham NG4 1RL, UK

    It's not always easy to see our mistakes when taking, post processing and printing our own images.

    There is a term called "judge bait" used quite frequently through judging events. These are the little mistakes we make as photographers which prevent us from getting awards for those images, which we have worked so hard on, that are entered in to any form of competition.

    Tonights exercise is for the members, either individually, collectively or in teams to critique a number of images as if through the eyes of a judge. During the process we will be taking notes that we hope will help create a check list that can be used by members entering future competitions.

    With some practice, we would like to think this process might help us to become more aware of some of the more common flaws that so often result in our image being marked down.

    This is another of the technical challenge competitions we've been introducing, along with panning and low view point, we are now moving to the taking and post process of any image in the "themed section only" which has to be presented in black and white only (This includes all shades of grey between pure black and pure white).

    This is not the same as mono, monochrome or any other definition as we are not allowing any sepia or other forms of toning to be part of the competition.

    Strictly B&W, which allows more than 50 shades of grey in between.
