The May 4 meeting that begins at 6:30 pm will feature the second of four competition salons for the year. Not all members are interested in competing, but I appreciate hearing insights about my images from people I respect. I don’t always agree, but most of the time I come away from the experience with improvements I could make or my eyes are opened to defects in a photo I had fallen in love with. It’s actually a learning experience for all the other salon images; I learn from those, too. Best of all, I am inspired by the talent in this club!
Alec Johnson will be our judge. Long time members will remember the presentation he gave to our club in 2013 on “Seeing in Black and White”. He’s widely known for being a dynamic and inspirational teacher, honing his teaching skills as a professor of Entrepreneurship at the University of St. Thomas. He is a regular speaker with metropolitan camera clubs, and his photographs have been widely published. His fine art photography can be seen at his web site.
Reminder: If you have prints to be judged (up to two), please bring them to the meeting 15 minutes before it begins.
