Su 3:15 BH Sewall Taking your Photography to the Next Level
Possibly you are entering competitions but are having a hard time winning. You want to understand what can make or break a photograph in competition, but judges are not always clear about what they like and don’t like, or, more importantly, why. Even if you aren’t competing you are probably driven to improve, and often it’s not obvious what to do next. All of us photographers get stuck in ruts now and then. Many of us spend most of our time doing the same things we’ve been doing for a while; these ruts can be sufficiently comfortable and satisfying. Some inspired photographers recognize when this is happening, choose to tackle it, and somehow find a way to climb out and move up. The better you get as a photographer the more challenging this is. Roy Sewall believes that the most constructive path forward is to constantly assess your photographic results and figure out what you could have done or will do better. This suggests we need analytical tools to assess photographs. Over the last 8 years, Roy has judged 70 times at local and regional camera clubs. After listening to other judges for many years at NBCC, plus thinking back on his own judging, Roy compiled a thorough list of reasons that judges keep photos “in” or toss them “out.” His findings were that it only takes 4 “attractors” to make a great photograph, but there are over 60 “detractors” that can bring any photograph to its knees. These findings are the basis of the Critique Groups that Roy has run several times a year for the last five years. This class illustrates each of these attractors and detractors with specific examples. The objective is to provide a well-defined basis for assessing one’s own photographs and learning from other people’s photographs.

What is included with a PASS and what is not?

There are two passes available a Friday/Saturday/Sunday Merchant Hall Pass and a Saturday/Sunday Merchant Hall Pass.  Both of these entitle the holder to attend any event held in Merchant Hall.  The Friday/Saturday/Sunday pass includes the all day workshop on Friday.

Most events held in Beacon Hall (BH) or Occoquan Hall (OH) are not included with the pass and must be purchased separately.

How do I know I will have a seat if I buy a Pass?

Merchant hall is a 1500 seat auditorium. Even with our largest audiences for our main events there is always plenty of room.

LUNCH Options and Will Lunch Be Available?

Yes, Lunch will be available for purchase in advance.  It is recommended that you purchase your lunch selections in advance. You are also free to bring your lunch.

There are some restaurants on the GMU campus, however they do not staff up for our event (even though they are told).  In prior years people who have gone to those restaurants have been pressed for time in returning to their next session.  Fore warned in fore armed.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Why should I register online?

The at the door prices will be higher than the online price.  In addition, some items may sell out, so by buying online you can guarantee yourself the classes you want.  You will also avoid waiting in line for your passes at the event.   In addition, two and three day Merchant Hall passes will only be available online.
