Education & Training – Anonymous Critique with Lynn Cates and Willa Friedman

March 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Willa Friedman

Lynn Cates

Take this opportunity to get feedback on your images. Submit images you are using new software to process; images you like but feel may need just a little help, and/or images you may consider for a competition. The sole purpose of anonymous critique is to help you grow as a photographer.  You will not be identified unless you choose to make comments or ask questions about your images.   You can also ask questions a bit more anonymously using Zoom chat sent by direct message only to E & T coordinator Eva Lanyi.

The firm deadline for image submission is 6 p.m. on Monday, March 22, 2021, to allow time for Mike Whalen to anonymize the images and for Lynn and Willa to review them before the March 30 meeting.

You can submit up to three images.  Please prioritize them by naming them as follows: number_title, where number is 1, 2, or 3, followed by an underscore and anything you’d like for a title. For example, “1_Red House on the Prairie.” Putting the number first will allow us to sort the images so that at least one image from every photographer is critiqued. Beyond that, Lynn and Willa will critique as many images as time allows.

Please attach your images to an email and send it to critique-2020@nvps.org, sized the same as for competition:  jpeg images with

a maximum of 1400 pixels wide and 1050 pixels high (vertical shots have the same 1050 pixel height requirement), sRGB workspace. We recommend the resolution of your jpeg images be 127 pixels per inch (PPI, sometimes called dots per inch or DPI) or less (e.g., 127, 96 or 72 PPI) for best results on Zoom.  If you send the images from Mac mail, please select the “actual size” option from the “image size” menu in the upper right corner.

Questions? Please contact the Education and Training Coordinator, Eva Lanyi. Her contact information can be found at Board Contacts.
