Print Competition, Judge: Rob Mitchell
Rob judged 35 prints and provided an entertaining and informative analysis of them for members. It was clear that Rob was an educator and used that set of skills to good effect when engaging with the audience.
Rob analysed the prints as presented and did not over emphasise technical aspects of the work at the expense of composition or the author’s interpretation of an image. Only a few obvious areas of technical execution were mentioned - blown highlights and too severe cropping were the most frequently cited.
Of particular note was a print entitled “the King” by AE, which scored 20 points.
Rob was a little rushed toward the end of the session but nevertheless members had the benefit of a session run by a very knowledgable and humorous judge.
All members who completed a feedback form would like to see Rob return in the future.
