    Sounds like a cool group. Like 40 people get together monthly. First 15min the organizer will do a presentation on something like lighting, depth of focus, etc.

    They ask that everyone submit like 3 pictures they took recently and they run through them on an overhead to critique.

    I saw this at the bottom of the group email.

    What is that all about? Isn't that a little shady?

    no its not shady, it states why they ask for that. The info located in the parenthesis.

    Sounds like a cool idea only if you find the photographers any good. If they suck then it could be the blind leading the blind.

    thx i guess you are right.

    i dunno if anything i could meet some local photographers and maybe make some friends. i believe a few are on model mayhem and it's more of a meeting of guys that aren't beginners but aren't quite full professionals

    we'll see should be fun at least.

    It gives them the right to use your images to promote their group, they even state that they cant' sell it or profit off of it. Nothing wrong with that bro.

    this group claims they focus on constructive criticism.

    hopefully replies like ":rofl:" and "nice snapshot fag" will be few and far
