Art Assoc. and the Fremont community center program, teaching camera, film, and darkroom. He displayed and sold work in an Artist co-op, in Fremont and in Auburn, Ca. and has owned and worked with three 35 mm cameras, (an SRT101, a Yashica and a Contax RTS), 3 medium format Cameras, (Mamiya C-330, RB-67 and a Pentax 6x7,) also a 4 by 5 view camera, in black and white, Polaroid and color. He built a darkroom with a 4 by 5 enlarger, using Schneider and Red Dot lenses for black& white and Cibachrome processing. Recently, he sold Sepia tone, framed work of Italy at a resturant in Canon Beach. Or. He is currently working with some 6000 slides and 2000 digital works, (that is still growing). He no longer shoots film but enjoys working with his old accumulation of work, and black and white negatives. He shoots all subjects, travel, architectural, etc., but his favorite is nature, with a vast collection of flowers. Joining the f67 group in Feb. 2010, he has rejoined his passion and made new friends.

PHOTO CATEGORIES, January and February, 2011 GENERAL: Any subject is acceptable. NATURE: NATURE DEFINITION. Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict observations from all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology, in such fashion that a well informed person will be able to identify the subject material and to certify as to its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality. Human elements shall not be present, except on the rare occasion where those human elements enhance the nature story. The presence of scientific bands on wild animals is acceptable. Photographs of artificially produced hybrid plants or animals, mounted specimens, or obviously set arrangements, are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement. WILDLIFE DEFINITION: Wildlife is defined as one or more organisms living free and unrestrained in a natural or adopted habitat. Landscapes, photographs of zoo animals, or Game Farm animals or any living subject taken under controlled conditions are NOT eligible for Wildlife competitions.
NATURE EDITING RULES: No elements may be moved, cloned, added, deleted, rearranged, or combined. No manipulation or modification is permitted except resizing, cropping, selective lightening or darkening, and restoration of original color to the scene. No special effects filters can be applied. Any sharpening and any other editing must appear natural. PLANTS: The Category includes any living member of the plant kingdom: wild or domestic. STILL LIFE: An arrangement of stationary elements, where subject arrangement and illumination have been significantly determined and controlled by the maker. INTERCLUB COMPETITIONS

PHOTO TIPS AND OTHER INFORMATION
Monday nights have more value for all participants when the evaluations are done well. Here is some material that was reviewed a couple of years ago, which is helpful for me to review from time to time, and perhaps it will be helpful to all club members, especially new members who are not yet familiar with the evaluation process. This is a good time to review some thoughts about evaluations (aka "critiques") of prints and projected images. Also this months article on this subject in the PSA Journal. Evaluations have a learning and educational purpose, to benefit the evaluator, the photographer, and all 14
others present. There should be encouragement and feedback for the photographer, and an opportunity for the photographer to explain his/her purpose or intent. Here are some brief ideas: (1)Identify and appreciate good, successful features in a positive, encouraging way;(2)Give ideas to improve an image without criticizing or finding fault. Be constructive; (3)Use an enthusiastic, friendly, tactful tone; (4)BeBrief. Artistic evaluation is subjective. There are no absolutes. The evaluators conclusion is not as important as his/her reasoning. Evaluations should look for and encourage, not stifle creativity and artistic expression. When evaluating, see the whole image, and then examine the details, such as technique, composition and impact/interest. Technique examples include focus, exposure, lighting, colors, computer editing, and cleanliness. Composition centers on how visual elements are arranged to achieve a unified whole, to express the purpose of the image. Impact and Interest are found by asking (for example) whether the image gets and keeps ones attention, evokes strong emotion, provokes ones imagination, has a "wow" factor, or draws the eye in and leads it through the image. Try not to judge an image by how well it follows or breaks "rules. Using "rules" as authoritative can be a barrier to creativity. For example: "The main subject should not be centered" "The eyes must have catchlights" "Always use an odd number of subjects" "There must be a center of interest" "Lines should go as we read, from left to right" "Everything must be sharp" "The main subject should be on the right" "You should always fill the frame" Opinion without reasoning is not very useful: "The composition leaves something to be desired" "I really like this picture" "This Works" "The color is not quite right" But evaluators can express reasoned opinions of their own or of others: "Most people prefer." "It is generally accepted." "In my experience, Ive found." "I believe it is more pleasing to the eye." And evaluators can use rhetorical questions like: "Did you take a vertical of this?" "Was it possible to move to the left to include the fence as a leading line?" Avoid evaluator biases or preferences, likes and dislikes for a type or area of photography. It is important for all present to feel that they can receive something of value during evaluations. Being an evaluator is a learning experience, and all club members are encouraged to give it a try. It will make you a better photographer!
