October 2021

Monday 4th October            Judge, Jury and Executioner
Venue: Zoom
Speaker: Steven Galvin LRPS
Steven has enthusiastically and successfully competed at club level and above since 2006, and has been judging since early 2017.  As a poacher and gamekeeper he has a fascinating insight into the world of club competitions.  His candid observations are thought provoking, often humourous, informative, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, but always positive.
In the case for the prosecution Steven provides many tips and hints (with examples) as to how to take, process and present competitive images. By discussing the do’s and don’ts of competitive photography he endeavours to inspire competitors to increase the quality of their work no matter how experienced they already are.
In the case for the defence (after the tea break adjournment) Steven provides an overview of how judges are trained, discuss their motivations, what they look out for, and their scoring systems.  In true courtroom style he sums-up the evidence and provide a verdict helpful and positive to those being judged and those judging.
