Image Critique Session

Postby Mike Farley » Sun 31 Mar 2019, 18:33

As Sarah mentioned in her latest newsletter to members, I have put my hand up to hold a pilot image critique session at my house. The idea is that it will be informal and fully interactive. My proposal is that participants will be requested to bring JPEG images on a memory stick which I will load into Lightroom and project onto a screen. The group will then discuss the image and suggested edits made on the fly using Lightroom's adjustment tools. Of necessity, such processing will be of a quick and dirty nature, but should be sufficient to show the effect of the alterations. Anyone who wishes will be free to take away the updated version of their images. I will delete all photos at the end of the meeting.

Later on, if there is sufficient interest, it might be possible to include prints. Given the difficulty of arranging suitable lighting in a domestic environment, it would be better to hold such a session during daylight hours. Accepting that could have to be at a weekend for those who work Monday to Friday, with the attendant issues of demands on free time.

How does that sound? Does anyone have any other ideas? The above is my preliminary suggestion based on what I have seen done elsewhere but it is not sacrosanct.

If you would like to attend the first meeting, let me know. Preferably by responding to this post so that everyone can be aware of what is being said. At the very least, send me an e-mail*. If you simply speak to me and rely on my failing memory, you might end up being disappointed. I am looking for a minimum of 3 people to make it worthwhile and a maximum of 5. I anticipate that the meeting will last around two hours. Based on responses, I will make suggestions for dates and times.

When responding, can you say whether you would prefer a weekday or weekend, afternoon or evening. For those attending, I will be seeking feedback afterwards to ensure that any future occasions can be structured to meet people's needs and expectations.

Any questions, post them here.

* For those who do not know my e-mail address, there is a facility for sending e-mails via the forum. Alternatively, I can be contacted using the online form on my website, link below.

Thanks, Sarah and Tina. One more person will give us a quorum but I would be more encouraged about this initiative if we had the full number of five attendees.

Great, we have got the minimum needed but having a couple of extra people will make the session a more worthwhile experience for all concerned.
