What Are You Afraid Of? – Competition
Hosted by Brad Barton
Print competition is one of the best (and fastest) ways to improve your work. In this daylong primer, find out what to expect in competition, what makes a merit photograph, and group critique of images. We will discuss the 12 elements of a merit image at length as well as the importance of titles, the selection of subjects, and how to choose images for competition.
We will not only study images that merit (and loan), but also look at images that have failed to reach the merit level. Attendees will be encouraged (but not required) to submit some of their own work for discussion in a safe, encouraging environment.
