Open Critique Night Returns Friday 5/15!

Our very informal, very popular Open Critique Night returns Friday 5/15 at 7:30pm!! All images will be in a Projection format. Each member can bring up to two images.
No Scoring!! NO Judges!! Just Conversation about each Image!!
The first 30 images will be presented to the audience, but after that, we will see how much time we have left. It will be very informal because everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to join in on the discussion giving their impressions and advice about each image.
This is just another way CPS offers its members the opportunity to continue to learn about how they can become better photographers.
This event is free and open to all!!

An Evening with Jenny Jones and Stuart Pearl!!!

Join us on Friday June 5th at 7:30 in the Wilson Room at the Club for a presentation from these two well known photographers. It will be an evening you will never forget!!
