Facilitators: Bonnie Greenberg, Beth Crastnopol, and Suki Hanfling
This is a 90 minute opportunity to co-critique each other’s images on Zoom.
Have you found yourself eager for helpful critique on your work? These sessions will offer club members an opportunity to improve their photography practice with helpful, honest feedback that goes beyond the "Great, I love it" that are frequent comments on social media.
How to Sign Up
Please sign up for one (and only one) of the following three sessions:
There is a limit of 7 people per session. If all the sessions are full, put your name on the Waitlist at the bottom of the spreadsheet and we'll try to add an additional session if there are enough people on the Waitlist.
How to Submit Images
After you add your name to the sign-up sheet, email two images to the facilitator for your session at least two days before the meeting. Please use these sizing and naming conventions:
Image Size: 1920 pixels on the long edge
What to Expect
At each session, we will critique one of each person’s images in the first round. If time permits, we will continue to the second round. Prior to your session , please familiarize yourself with the NCC critique page.
We will comment on :
What is working in the image
What could make it even better using those guidelines
Is there anything the photographer especially wants feedback on.
Bonnie, Beth & Suki
Bonnie Greenberg, Beth Crastnopol, and Suki Hanfling are all Newton Camera Club members. They have volunteered their time to facilitate these member-to-member critique sessions.
Bonnie has been an active member of NCC since 2014. She enjoys the camaraderie or (CAMERA-derie) of the group and has learned so much from the wonderful speakers and engaging competitions. Her style has been eclectic featuring travel, family, children’s portraits and still life. She looks forward to this project of Friendly Critique as yet another way to improve photography skills and create community.
Beth has been a member of NCC for about 6 years and she loves being part of a photography community. She's a passionate photographer with an eclectic portfolio that includes abstracts, travel photos, and grandchildren. For her, photography is her lens to finding beauty and meaning in the visual world around her. She look forward to learning in critique sessions with other photographers from NCC.
Probably in part because she doesn't try to make a living out of her photography (she's a couple’s and sex therapist), she absolutely loves experimenting with capturing something new or different in her images. During the pandemic, getting out to take photos at least once a week in order to explore different parts of Mass saved her "mental health". She's been experimenting with different approaches such as Intentional Camera Movement and taking multiple in-camera exposures and then combining them. However, the process only begins with the photographs since she then spends hours trying to “improve” or even “recreate” these images in Lightroom.
