Tell Us About It

This is not about making a Salon winning image or how to improve it. The intent is that each month a member will share an image which has an emotional and/or personal connection. The club member will have 5-7 minutes to describe their image however they wish, which can include some of the following:

  1. Does the picture have a personal connection?
  2. What feelings or memory does the image elicit?
  3. What prompted you to take the photograph?
  4. What was learned or experienced?
  5. What were the challenges (technical and/or environmental?)
  6. Were those challenges successfully overcome?
  7. Were specific camera techniques used?
  8. What role did post processing play?
  9. Did the resulting image turn out as envisioned at the time of capture?
  10. Contact a club officer today to join the conversation!
