Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your images from your peers. Want some suggestions on how you might improve an image before entering it in a competition? Having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting, composition, or editing? Want to understand more about why a judge may have scored an image as he or she did? Then you’ll find this casual and supportive meeting helpful. And, if you choose to join in evaluating the work of others and contributing your thoughts, you will likely strengthen your own picture-taking skills. Members of all skill levels are welcome, and of course you’re welcome to just attend the meeting and observe.

If you’d like feedback on your images, bring up to three TIFFs or JPEGs ( sized to 1080 pixels on the longest side) to the meeting on a thumb drive.

The judge for our photo competition in May is Jamie Konarski Davidson. Based in Greenville, NC, Jamie is an award-winning freelance outdoor & nature photographer. She is a member of the North American Nature Photography Association and the Carolina Nature Photographers Association. She has presented programs and workshops for NANPA's 2015 Nature Photography Summit, N4C's Annual Conference, CanAm Photo Conference and, most recently, Mike Moats' Macro Photo Conference. She also speaks to local and regional camera clubs and organizations in the Southeast. Through New Life Photos, Jamie leads workshops and photo tours throughout the Southeast and markets her work through exhibits and art shows.
Jamie will present a program titled "Subject to Interpretation." In this presentation Jamie will share her vision and ways to grow and develop awareness and confidence in our individual ways of interpreting the world around us. She will also provide some ideas on how to focus and be more intentional in the image-making process.

Immediately preceding (May 5-9) her visit to Charlottesville, Jamie will lead a retreat-style workshop in Nelson County the central location for which is Pharsalia, an antebellum plantation in Tyro, Virginia. For workshop information and for galleries of her striking photographs see her website at www.newlifephotos.com.
