As promised, 2010 is starting out to be a much anticipated, ‘Year of Action’ for Long Island Photo Gallery and its members. Last night was the start of the push to increase opportunity for our members while helping to ignite the creative juices for us all. If you love photography like we do, a great way to kick the year off is to have a Critique Night. There’s nothing like a group of photographers, of all levels, joining together to enjoy each others favorite photos while having those same images critiqued by a jury of their peers.
Last night we held our first ever, Long Island Photo Gallery critique night. We met new members and had a new guest of LIPG sit in and participate in the event. We had a great group of photographers assembled and we saw some really great photography. The purpose of critiquing images is to help the photographer grow as an artist and to help them reach their personal photographic goals. It is extremely difficult to critique your own images. You, of course, know what you like and what you don’t like about your photos. But, an independent fresh set of eyes can sometimes point out the simplest suggestions to improve upon an image. In many cases, this can take an image from being ordinary to extraordinary!
Those that attended last night’s meeting walked away with a FREE Long Island Photo Gallery 2010 wall calendar. Believe it or not, we are starting to zero in on the 2011 Long Island Photo Gallery calendar. If you would like to get your images in the calendar, please contact either Joanne or Jessica at LIPG.
