  • Study Group
  • Outward Bound

The Study Group program is part of the pre-meeting training program starting at 6:30 prior to the second meeting each month. We will divide members into small groups led by master photographers to discuss prints and projected images brought in by members. This is a great way to get feedback on images one is considering for the monthly competitions or to fine tune that one great image.  Groups may also be formed to discuss other topics of interest – just let us know what you are interested in.

Here is how the study groups work:

  • Session will start promptly at 6:30.
  • Bring a print or processed digital image file on a thumb drive.
  • The processed file does not need to be resized – TIFF, PSD, or jpeg is fine. You might also consider bringing the original RAW file as well.
  • Prints may be any size in color or monochrome and do not need to be mounted or matted.  If you like, you can also bring the digital file of your print.
  • As people arrive, they will be assigned to a group of four or five with a master photographer.
  • The group members will give and receive feedback on their images until 7:15.
  • If you did not bring an image, you are encouraged to sit in on a group to either observe or participate.

Remember that this is about learning from each other in a friendly environment. Please assume that those giving input have a positive intent.

See Study Groups page for additional information.
