February 17th Meeting – How to get that Merit

Join us for our February meeting on Wednesday, February 17th at 5:30 p.m. Social Hour / 6:30 Meeting at our NEW LOCATION: La Casa Vicinia in New Windsor 1015 Little Britain Road. Members: $27 ; Guests $27 (first meeting); Non-Members: $40 R.S.V.P. by Sunday, February 14th

Paul Bernstein and Owen Kassimir will be joining us for “How to Get that Merit”. What factors does an image need to earn that Blue Ribbon? Is it technically good enough? Does it have that “Wow” factor to make it stand out? Will it make viewers know the maker is a true artist? Does it tell a story to impress the judging panel? What do the judges look for? How do they base their scoring? Paul and Owen are PPA trained judges and they will take you through the process of selecting the appropriate “WOW” image for competition, enhancing it in postproduction, creating a professional presentation and giving that perfect title to put it over the top. Learn the techniques and procedures that you, as the photographer, can master to increase the odds of scoring 80 or above as well as creating better art for yourself, and higher quality, more profitable work for your clients.
