I am compiling a list of folks who should participate in the photo review.
If you are an experienced photographer, do not think that this is below your standard to get an outside opinion.
The opinions of how another person views your images may surprise you. Interpretations are unique to each individual. You may find solace in someone else agreeing with your own interpretations or you may say, 'oh I never thought of that'. So send your 2 images.
If you are a novice photographer, do not miss this opportunity to get a second opinion at how and why you should follow your gut feeling about your own image making. It may surprise you to see how good you are. Do not succumb to the adage 'you are your own worst critic' Send your 2 images.
If you are a casual photographer, getting your images reviewed may kick start your photography again. Just rummage through your collection and send me 2 images.
If you are a chronic procrastinator, (okay I'll agree that I am one of those too) mark your calendar(don't procrastinate this) for the 4th or 5th to send me 2 images.
If you are a board member, you need to lead by example. Send your 2 images now.
If you are a member of Hilo Photography Club, it is your obligation to send me 2 images.
Hope this covers all the groups. If you are falling through the cracks somewhere let me know and I'll find a good reason for you to send me 2 images.
The club holds a meeting open to the public, every month.
We often have demonstrations, slide shows from members or invited photographers, invited lectures, in-club photo contests and exhibits, discussions about upcoming contests, photographic technique, technology, equipment, digital manipulation, darkroom, etc. This monthly meeting is usually the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at 7 p.m, at the Kamana Senior Center, 127 Kamana St. in Hilo Google Map.
