Understanding Competition Categories by Bernie Weinzimmer 
August 24, 7:30 PM 
This workshop will help answer common questions around PJ, nature, and travel images. The goal is to help you understand each category better so that you not only improve the images you capture, but choose the appropriate category for submission to LGSCC competitions. You’ll see both good and less-than-good examples of each category and get a better understanding of what disqualifies an image from a category. The first part of the workshop will be a talk. In the second part, Bernie will provide feedback on images that participants bring to the workshop.
