Presentation Topic: Critique Night

Presenter: Camera Club of Brevard

Presenter: Camera Club of Brevard 

Panel Members: Chuck Palmer, John Buck, Don Martin, Kim Hunt and Richard Thomson


The Camera Club of Brevard’s August program meeting is all about what judges look for in photographs entered into contests. Earlier this month, CCB members submitted questions regarding the judging process and critiquing of photographs.  Questions range from “what type of matting should be used” to “what is better… landscapes or wildlife”.  We’ll answer tons of questions.

Members also submitted lots of photographs for the panel to analyze and critique.  This will be an interactive program to help you unravel the mysteries of entering photographs into contests.  And, it will also help you understand what is a great photograph whether you enter contests or not.

This is a power packed program for everyone of all skill levels.  This is a program you won’t want to miss.
