Photo Critiques Presented by Gary Baird

Have you ever had an image that you thought was pretty good, but wondered what it would look like in the eyes of a judge? Or perhaps you have an image that seems to lack something, but you are not sure what it is. What you need is a photo critique, where an experienced photography judge can give you valuable feedback on your image. At this meeting, we will view digital images submitted for critique on a projector screen, and one of our own print competition judges, Gary Baird, will provide feedback on them. It should be a good learning experience to receive feedback and suggestions for improvement on your own image and on others as well.

Gary got his undergraduate degree in Colorado where his Canon FT was his companion on all backpacking trips.College was followed by a 40 year career as an elementary school teacher and administrator.He retired three years ago to Carolina Shores with his wife, Sue, who is also his photo assistant and wildlife spotter.Since retiring to the area, his work has been displayed in two local galleries, a one man show at the Waccamaw Neck Library in Pawleys Island, and the Rice Museum in Georgetown.He currently has a photo in the Fort Fisher Aquariums Our Coastphotography exhibit that was awarded Best Wildlife Image in the show.He has written forCamera in the Wildand he had a photo honored by Audubon as a Top 100 image in the 2015 contest.Starting off as a mountain photographer, moving to the beach was bit of an adjustment.He has evolved into primarily a bird photographer with land and seascapes taking a secondary interest. He shoots birds with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600 zoom. He shoots landscapes with the Sony AR7ii with a 16-35mm Zeiss lens. Gary says, The nice thing about being a nature photographer is that every time you go out to shoot you are almost guaranteed to see something new or amazing.There are awe-inspiring events taking place every day in nature.It is up to each photographer to bring his or her vision and skill to capture those moments.
