July 18th Meeting - Western Idaho Fair Photo Contest - Pre Judging .
If you are contemplating entering the Western Idaho Fair Photography Contest then our Wednesday, July 18th meeting will be of particular interest. It is not too early to start getting prepared. We will be critiquing your potential entries to help you get prepared. Bring either prints or digital images to be critiqued. Bring several images if you are not sure which one to submit. Our goal of this session is to help you get the best possible results in the photo contest.
Paul Pulley, the WIF Photography Superintendent will be on hand to help with the critique process. Club members have enjoyed considerable success in this contest so this meeting is a great opportunity to get some help with your preparation.
In past years the category of B&W has had very few images submitted at the fair so if you have some good B&W images consider submitting in the appropriate Monochrome classes.
Attached please find the 2018 WIF Photography Dept guidelines for this year’s contest.

Landscape photography is one of the art forms where the canvas is already laid out in front of the photographer. It becomes the challenge to make that canvas into the artist's vision. Instructors of photographic composition say, among other things, that it's the art of what not to include in the picture that makes a compelling visual expression - Dan Mottaz
