Making Better Pictures and How to Judge Them
by Bob Benson
Please join the Arlington Camera Club for a presentation by Bob Benson
Bob Benson, FPSA EPSA, has held various positions with the Photographic Society of America, including a four year term as Divisions Vice President. Previously, he started the Interclub Competition for the older Electronic Imaging Division, then later, started the Interclub Competition for PID. Besides some other PSA related activities, he wrote an ongoing column for the Journal on Lightroom®. Currently he serves as the Ethics Review Advisor. Since online judging has become common, he judges for international exhibitions and clubs in other areas.
At the local level, he has been on the Board for the Chicago Area Camera Clubs Association since 2001, serving in many capacities, including President. He judges and presents at local clubs and for seminars on a regular basis, providing education programs and training for new judges. Through CACCA, he has earned major awards, including the Wanda Christl Award (photography excellence), the Stinson Award (volunteerism), and the Creativity Award. Benson holds a TOPS in color, mono, and creative prints.
“My biggest passion is prints and printing; there is nothing like seeing a well-crafted print. Back in the darkroom days, I was never satisfied with my B&W prints. Digital has changed all that, allowing the control I never was able to achieve before. Landscapes are my preference, but I am willing to try anything, as I see that as the best way to learn.”
Please plan to attend and bring a guest to this special event.
