Education Night (Resource Night) @ Usual Meeting Location
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Please join us on Monday (January 28) at 7:00 pm for the next NELP Education Night.  This year, we’re expanding on our annual “Book Night” concept to include other resources that we use.  Books offer so much by way of inspiration and technique, but we also benefit from Web Sites, organizations and DVDs.  and this is an opportunity to learn from each others about resources we’ve found useful.  Each year, we look at books from a different perspective, similar to the themes for our Image Review nights.

Proposed topic: What resources have you found helpful as sources for ideas for your photography projects?  Where do your ideas come from?

Option: If your resource is online, feel free to send me a link in advance of the meeting.

As always, you’re welcome to share any resources that you think would be helpful for the group – you don’t need to stick to the proposed topic.

Image Review Night @ Usual Meeting Location
Feb 11 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Optional theme:  Tangle

Please join us for our monthly image review night. This is a great opportunity to share your work with other artists and receive useful feedback. Feel free to ask for our thoughts in specific areas, or to seek general impressions of your artwork. Some of our artists bring more than one variation of a piece, or several stages of a work-in-progress. Let us know what you’re seeking, and we’ll do our best to provide it.

The “optional theme” for each meeting is just that … optional. Some of our members enjoy finding or creating images that fit the theme, while other members have specific images or projects that they would like feedback on. Whatever works for you is fine.

Our general guideline is that each artist may bring up to 8 images for a typical review. Prints are encouraged, as this is the best way to see an artwork as its maker envisions it. Digital images are (of course) welcome, on USB memory sticks and a variety of other digital media. If you bring more than eight images, we’ll need to go through them quickly. If you want to spend more time discussing an image, just bring fewer. We want to make sure everyone has time to present their work.

Our digital display is 1920 x 1080 resolution. You may want to optimize your image for this size, though our display software will scale your image if it is larger or smaller. The JPG file format is preferred, to keep file size down and ensure compatibility with our software.

If you are new to the group or have any questions, please let me know. We look forward to seeing you and your photographs.
