One member each month submits a RAW image for the other members to edit. It’s fascinating to see first-hand the techniques used by fellow members as they interpret the same starting image in a variety of different ways. This exposure to different editing styles and ideas expands your horizons and encourages you to try new techniques with your images. Processing groups meet over Zoom. Three of the processing groups use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop; one group uses Affinity Photo.
The four processing circles are managed by Irene Stupples, Jim Stupples, Leigh Foster and Claire Wallace-Watson.
Each member sends in one image per month for other members to evaluate. The critiques you receive on your photographs go way beyond the comments you'll get on social media and will give you insight into how other people view your work. And the discipline of appraising other people's landscape photographs has the benefit of enriching your own photographic vision. Some critique circles work over email and some meet via Zoom.
The eCritique circles are managed by David Travis, Martyn Bennett, Bill Daniels, Mark Sims, Candia Peterson, Greg Lovett, Steve Hartley and Chris Burgess.
Physical prints are circulated for constructive critique amongst the Print Circle members.
Printing and circulating your photographs among a community of photographers not only helps you grow as an artist but also provides a tangible experience that enhances the connection between you and your work.
The three print circles are managed by Diana Wynn and Doug Lodge.
