Douglas Wade our President, welcomed 45 LPA members and visitors to our General Meeting and Photo Critique session.
Rock Myers our Vice President reported - This was our first in a series of two free critique workshops (next critique workshop - Sept 16th). Attendees enjoyed viewing 80+ images submitted by our LPA members. Members could anonymously submit up to 5 images each. The images were critiqued by 3 of our Master level photographers. Tylene Trout, Dale Ware and Sue Craft commented on all the images and emphasized the specific qualities that made them good as well as offered suggestions on how they could be improved. Everyone benefited from their comments and will no doubt capture better images in the future. After we complete the two critique workshops test, we will evaluate the members input and participation and decide on how to move forward. Thanks to all that participated and to our Master photographers.
Welcome Visitors & New Members – Wayne Staley welcomed one new member and several visitors to the meeting.
