WHEN YOU FIRST join a Camera Club you are likely to be told that through it you will improve your photography,
and this is perfectly true if the club operates competitions or salons where you get feedback from the judge.
But once you move above this level, then the reality is that you generally receive nothing back ลาวสามัคคี วีไอพี.
In Salons, images are either accepted or rejected, and for those that are selected, a small number will achieve higher awards and others won’t.
Generally the photographer will not receive any information about why an image scored the way it did. Making it even more confusing,
the subjective nature of photography can mean that the same image gets honours in one event and not accepted in another.
he question of “How can I improve my photography if I have no idea why I am getting the results that I am?” is extremely valid.
The reason why that question occurs is that for the most part we judge all of our events in secret.
Only the judges and a small number of helpers are privy to what goes on at selection day.
With the honours application there is some feedback; however what is presented in the letters is only a snapshot of what was actually discussed.
I hear two common reasons about why we judge in such a way. First, it allows the judges to have a free The soapbox
and frank discussion about the images in a confidential manner and second, it means that the results can be held secret until the organisers wish to release them.
The second excuse to me is a bunch of baloney but we won’t go there. In terms of the judges I can see a certain point;
however, other organisations do have open judging and still manage to have robust discussions The soapbox.
The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers (NZIPP) assess their Iris Awards in the days prior to their annual convention in an open forum.
In the last four years the NZIPP have taken it further and streamed the event.
This year they took the process further and the judges were required to make a comment on every image.
Given that over the three days 1,172 images were assessed in 13 categories, this was no mean feat.
Previously where there was little difference in the marks amongst the five judges , that score was entered.
