Spending the day sitting on a hard chair listening to people talk at you can be a tedious way to spend 8 hours of your Saturday. Luckily I had the chance to do just that. CAPA and the Mississauga Camera Club were nice enough to host and present on how to judge photographs for competition. When attending past seminars put on by other groups I find they are able to pace their courses and present all the material that is contained in the books they’ve supplied. Unfortunately once I received the seminar book for the CAPA course we were promptly told that we would only get through half the book during the session and we were to read the rest on our own time. I was very disappointed. As the day progressed I felt that it was rushed and most of the time was spent on making sure everyone in attendance had a chance to judge a photograph from different categories. This course should really be a two-day course in order to get the chance to learn all the techniques for judging to their standards and get a chance to critique a photograph or two. There is room for improvement in the presentation portion. The book that was supplied is very well done it’s just a shame that it was not used to its full possibility. I did learn enough to understand how to score.
Room for improvement – Score is 7 😉
