How the Image Was Made - Chris Handley and Jim Harrison
Also: Members & Guests Critique
APS members Chris Handley and Jim Harrison will share all the details of how two of their favorite images were made. They will cover their creative thought processes and the technical details of image capture and processing.
First, Poison Ivy by Chris Handley
Chris Handley's image will be Poison Ivy, the First Place Monochrome winner in the APS Masters Competition for 2016. This image really shows off Chris's imagination, plus his art director, photography and image processing skills.
Poison Ivy artfully combines two separate images, making a truly compelling and powerful result.

And, Almost Sundown by Jim Harrison
Jim Harrison's Almost Sundown has never won anything, but it's one of Jim's favorites, plus, it's been a good seller, now being enjoyed in the homes of several happy customers.
The product of one lucky trip (out of many hundreds) to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Almost Sundown combines 12 images into a soothing and luminous, but realistic, high dynamic range panorama (HDR - Pano).

Members and Guests Critique
Informal comments and critique will be shared for print images brought to the meeting by members and guests. Please bring 1 to 3 unmounted prints for critique by the group.
This is a great way for new members and guests to "get their feet wet" by getting feedback on their images. It's good experience, ideal for learning from everyone's expertise, and an excellent way to prepare your images for APS competitions.
