CAMERA CRAFT – Assessing images for PAGB and FIAP Distinctions

Small Barn Hall – Thursday 25th May – 8.00pm
Yin Wong and Sandra Crook

Despite being a very successful club in external competitions and an increasing number of members achieving RPS distinctions APS has a very small number of members achieving distinctions in PAGB or FIAP. We would very much like to encourage more members to consider applying for these nationally and internationally recognised distinctions, both of which are based on individual images rather than panels of work as with the RPS.

The evening will start with a brief outline of the requirements for the various levels in both organisations. Julie Mullings has very kindly agreed to show her images from her successful CPAGB submission and Sandra will do likewise with her DPAGB images.

There will then be an opportunity for members to show a few images and receive feedback, if you would like to do so please bring along up to six images on a memory stick. Notepad and pen may also be useful.

23rd February Camera Craft – Assessing Images

Meet in the small barn hall.

Working in small groups you will be encouraged to assess each other’s work as well as receiving constructive feedback from one of the advanced APS workers. Please bring up to six photographs, preferably in print but on a laptop rather than a tablet or telephone if not.

This is a good opportunity for less experienced members to have their work considered in a non-judgemental environment. It may also be of interest to the more experienced who may be entering, or considering entering, images in International Salons or working towards a PAGB qualification.
