Course #OH10
Christine Walsh-Newton, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, EA-ASP

Did you enter your state and/or district competitions and come away disappointed? Do you have the "no merit blues"? If so, let's turn those frowns upside down!

Learn to analyze your images based on the 12 elements by reviewing your entries in a group setting. Christine will lead off with her analysis of each image and utilize the images as teaching tools. Students will be encouraged to offer insight about each other's work to create confidence in self-critique and offer each photographer additional perspectives on what improvements could be made to their images. This workshop is a perfect opportunity to get input from multiple sets of eyes before you submit to IPC2017.

So come prepared to listen and learn as well as offer your own input. You'll walk away a more confident, professional photographer and help those around you to do the same!

Note: Bring your entries with you (if you submitted digitally, bring digital files on a USB. If you submitted prints, bring those), and copies of your district critiques, if you ordered them. Images may be submitted electronically if the maker would like to remain anonymous during the class.
