Aug 13, 2020 - Meeting -- Constructive Critique Session

Program for the August 13, 2020 Photo Club Monthly Meeting
Constructive Critique Session
Access Passcode: 5mp5*@BH

Come join us via a ZOOM session on Thursday, August 13, 2020, 7pm for a fun and informative session!  We will have a special guest, Allan Duff, who is a member of the Nevada Camera Club and has served as one of their photo judges for their monthly competitions for several years.  Allan provided this expertise to us a few years ago, and members were appreciative of his comments.  

You are invited to submit 1-2 photos for this evening’s session.  Allan will critique each photo, pointing out strengths and offering constructive comments/ideas to possibly improve the photo.  For those of you new to the Club, please do not be hesitant about submitting your photo(s)…we think you will find this to be not only helpful and informative as we all strive to improve our photography skills, but also FUN!

The session will begin with Allan reviewing the winning photos from the Photo Scavenger Hunt held in January 2020 (Round 1).  After these have been reviewed, he will provide comments for member photos in Round 2, then in Round 3.

You will have an opportunity to ask Allan a question or two after he has provided comments for your photo, or you may have no questions for him, and that’s OK too!

If we are still meeting only by ZOOM sessions in August, the only thing you need to do to participate is look through your photos, select either one or two photos, and post here or email them to Diane Frankenfield ( as JPEG file attachments to your message.  Please name your file with the following format (first name, last name initial_###):

Ex: DianeF_002, DianeF_003

where _002 indicates that photo will be in Round 2 and _003 indicates that photo will be in Round 3.

The deadline for posting to the Google album or emailing your image(s) to Diane is 
August 7, 2020

If we learn that Desert Vista will be open for in-person meetings August 13, we’ll get the word out, and you would need to bring your matted photo(s) (you do not need to frame) to the meeting. Photo size 11" x 14" (matted = 16" x 20") is recommended so that the audience can see more easily, or 8" x 10" photo size (matted = 11" x 14"). Square photos and panoramic photos are also fine to submit.

If you have any questions, please contact Diane at
