March 14th Meeting Critique - Marc Weinberg

Start thinking about what photos you want to have reviewed at our March meeting. Photographer Marc Weinberg will be doing a critique of member work. Some people like to bring work that reflects a new technique they have tried (studio lighting, black & white, or infrared, for example). Others bring photos they want to learn how to improve. Some will be showing work for the first time, and want to know what an independent reviewer thinks of it. The choice is yours. If you are considering submitting some work to our juried summer show, this critique is a good opportunity to show some pieces you might enter for the show.

Marc will discuss each photo so that the entire group will learn from his comments and suggestions.

For this critique, prepare five photos for review. Depending on the number of photos we receive, we may limit each person to the first three, and if there is time, move on to the remaining images.

Images must be submitted in jpg format with a minimum of 1200 and a maximum of 2400 pixels in the longest dimension. It is recommended that the files be in the sRGB color space. Please number your photos in order of preference with LastName#1, i.e. Smith#1.jpg, Smith#2.jpg, etc. Save them in a folder with your name on a flash drive to be given to John at the beginning of the meeting.

Here is more information about Marc:

Marc Weinberg started taking photos with a Brownie box camera when he was 8 years old in 1956. In February 2008, he thankfully retired from his career as a government lawyer. Since then, he has been able to dedicate himself to his long held passion for photography. Marc jumped on the digital bandwagon in 1998. While photographic tools have changed, photography hasn’t. It’s still what's behind the viewfinder that counts most -- the photographer’s unique eye and vision and knowledge of camera operations and light. Marc teaches digital photography at Frederick Community College and Shepherd University, and he has led workshops at the Griffin Arts Center, and the Rehoboth Arts League, in Rehoboth Beach, DE. He is a resident artist at the Griffin and has a studio there. In addition to his fine art work, he provides photography services in Frederick, MD. And, he has been a regular contributing photographer for area magazines. In addition to TAG, his work has been showcased in several galleries in Frederick, MD, including the Griffin Arts Center, Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center, The Frederick Arts Council, McGuire Fine Arts & Framing, Lafayette Gallery, Frederick Community College, and the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce. His work also has shown in Carlisle, PA, at The Garden Gallery, Haverstick Gallery & Studios, and the Carlisle Arts Learning Center. His work is in private collections and on permanent display at PNC's headquarters building in Baltimore.
