Basic Portraiture Notes (updated)
Written by Cranston Reid   
Friday, 21 October 2011 01:52

Here are five basic guidelines for creating better portraits:

  1. Good communications: Most people simply don't like to have their picture taken, a reluctance that might originate from a previous bad experience, low self esteem due to wrinkles, weight, hair or a myriad of other perceived defects. If you have an assistant, the lighting can be set up and tested well before the client is invited to participate. If you are proficient with your camera equipment, this projects professionalism and confidence.

 Judging & Critiquing for Show & Tell

Note:  A large portion of this article was taken from “Some Thoughts ON Photographic Judging” by Gilbert Hill, FPSA

 “There is no better place to learn to really look at pictures than acting as a judge, charged with the job of pushing the buttons and making the decision.  Because they are not your pictures, you are free to decide whether or not they “click”—and why.”  Most people join camera clubs to learn more about photography and have others critique their photos.  That means that everyone is going to have to learn to judge and critique as well as deliver and accept constructive criticism.  “Judging is creating better photographers who are learning to evaluate their own work objectively.”  

WHEN & WHERE are the meetings held? We've MOVED!

Our next meeting is scheduled for February 10, 2015.

The Lubbock Camera Club meets at the Connect Church, which has recently relocated to 13101 U.S. Hwy 87. This is on the EAST side of highway 87 and is the second business south of FM-1585 (south of the Stripes convenience store).  It's easier find than you might think because the access road south of 1585 is two way traffic; so turn south of 1585 on the EAST side of highway 87 and it's the second building on your left. Meeting time is 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. Feel free to arrive a few minutes early and get to know some of the members. If you’re running behind, no problem, you won't be yelled at for sneaking in and finding a seat. Our meeting room is very comfortable and large enough for our growing membership. The meetings in 2015 are: February 10, March 10, April 14, May 12, June 9, July 14, August 11, September 8, October 13, November 10, and December 8, 2014.

The Lubbock Camera Club welcomes photographers of all ages and skill levels!

Meetings are held monthly at the Connect Church's NEW LOCATION, which is now 13101 U.S Hwy 87.  Our meetings usually consist of a guest speaker one month followed by a "show and tell" photo contest the following month.  Speakers are sometimes related to the next months contest.  Please feel free to browse our website and join us as a guest at our next meeting.  Just like the rest of West Texas, we have some of the friendliest and most helpful folks around, so see y'all there!
