SESSIONS

SATURDAY 3RD FEB 13:30 - 'SMALL CHANGES - BIG DIFFERENCE' (1HR)

For those that enter photography based competitions, nothing can be more frustrating than just missing out on an Award .. and yet so many people literally do just miss out by literally a point or two.

Often a quick tweak of an image that literally takes just a few seconds can make a huge difference to an image, moving it to the next level. It’s simple when you know ‘how’!

With David’s award winning background and experience as a Judge he is well placed to advise ‘how’ and even ‘what’ these little differences can be.

He’s going to show a number of competition images and demonstrate how they could have scored higher with a small tweak or two (see the before and after on this page as an example).

This will be an ‘eye-opener’ and is a ‘must’ for those who enter competitions, want to submit for qualifications or simply want to give their work that ‘edge’.

This invaluable session is included in the Saturday Day Pass..
