Making Competitive Nature Images
In this program, Richard Cloran (HonFPSA, GMPSA, HonNEC) will explore the key aspects of a successful competitive nature image and what separates them from an otherwise good nature image. Each of the key aspects is covered in short, easily remembered points. These points are then reinforced with multiple examples using images that have and have not been successful at local, interclub and international exhibition levels.
This program is intended to build on and complement the January miniseries program on Evaluating Nature Images. It approaches that same core from the perspective of the maker with a goal of giving prospective entrants a better understanding of why an image may or may not succeed in a nature competition run under the PSA definition.
Rick is a past Chairman of the PSA Nature Division, Director if the PSA Nature Division’s Subject Identification Service, a Commentator for PSA’s ND2 (Nature) Study Group, a frequent judge of Nature International Exhibition sections, and a contributor to the current Nature Definition and the Nature Photography Judge’s Guide.
