Save the Date! An Indoor “Outing”

Colleen Miniuk-Sperry will join us for a special critique session at the NEH Library’s Mellon Room on Tuesday, February 27th from 6:30 – 9:00. This extraordinary opportunity will take the place of our regular February outing. This session will be open to guests and visitors but only club members may submit photos for critique.

As a full-time freelance outdoor photographer, writer, and instructor, Colleen’s passion for the great outdoors is contagious. She offers photography workshops throughout the U.S. and has a special affinity for Acadia National Park where she has served as Artist-in-Residence three times. Among her publications, she has authored several award-winning books. You can learn more about Colleen’s extensive work at her website.

Many of you will remember Colleen’s guest presentation at the MDI Photo Club several years ago when she shared some of her extraordinary winter photography from ANP — remember her ice bubbles? Several of us have been fortunate enough to work with Colleen in a small group instructional setting whether in Acadia or in the Arizona desert during the spring bloom. Her critique sessions are not only particularly instructive but also lots of fun.

Club members should make plans to submit images for this special critique session. Each member may submit up to three images; please include Feb Critique and number them in the file name according to the order in which you’d like them to be viewed. We’ll do our best to get to as many images as possible working through all the #1 images first, etc.

Colleen is sure to have some of her books available for sale that evening. She’ll open with a presentation about the process of critique. Please don’t miss this great opportunity to share your work!
