Critique Course

WAUPS is hosting a Critique Workshop.  This will be held on three Saturdays afternoons, 29 July, 12 and 26 August, 2pm till 5pm at Team Digital in East Perth. Brent Acie will be running the workshop.  The cost is $125. 

What is critique?

Critique is repeatable process for assessing images, and can go something like this….
1. What made the photographer stop to take this shot? 
2. What is the photographer trying to convey?
3. What are the strengths of the image? 
4. What are the distractions in the image? 

Brent also runs the WAPF judging workshops so this workshop provides a fantastic opportunity for members to learn from someone who shows others what to look for when they are reviewing and judging images. If you are keen to learn more about the nature of critique and how to apply this form of review for your own images, then sign up for the course by emailing

We have a few spots remaining and it is just exclusive to WAUPS and WAPF club members.
