Uncle Dick's Workshop - Friday 18
Every Friday at 10:00AM - we will be bringing you the sort of cutting-edge expertise that leaves ragged bits and sore fingers - Uncle Dick's Workshop. The advice is free - free from good sense in most instances....It really cranks up around the first of April.
Q: Our camera club is going to introduce a new system of judging and grading. It is based upon a 13-part model from international galleries and takes a week to comment upon each individual image. Will this improve our pictures?
A: Not necessarily – mind you if they replaced 15 minutes of learned commentary with a simple set of thumbscrews, standards would shoot up...
Q: I have 50 images of urban decay and the misery of human life and I want to be hung in a gallery.
A: You certainly do...you certainly do.
Q: I want to touch-up a model. What do I need to do?
A: I hesitate to offer advice on this one lest I be called into court to testify. I should think it a better idea to take her picture and then smooth out imperfections on the screen image with an editing program. Just saying....
Q: Why are none of your answers sensible?
A: Because this is my keyboard and I get to do the typing. If you want good sense read Roger Hicks or Spinoza. You can relieve the tension by coming into the shop and buying expensive items.
Q: What can I get in the photographic line for my Valentine?
A: Either a heart-shaped camera or a camera-shaped heart. Don’t laugh – we could introduce you to some customers....
