2008-02-16 11:09:23   Open Critique opportunity for Upstate New York photographers.

Every 1st Thursday of the month, Booksmart Studio holds an open critique session for photographers. There is no charge for the open critiques, just bring 2-4 of your own photographs and put them on the wall. There is no size limitation of the work you can hang on the walls.

Open critique runs from 7:00-9:00 PM and for every skill level. We divide the time equally so everyone will receive feedback from the open critique group. Discussions include visual, conceptual aspects, and technical issues within photography. —EricKunsman
