2022 Lagniappe Classes

January 20, 2022 12 Elements of a Merit Print 


The New Year is upon us and our first LPS Lagniappe program features something old with a 2022 twist. Join fellow club members as we review the “12 Elements of a Merit Print” using the very same guidelines that the professional PPA judges use to grade and award the many outstanding images we often admire. The program’s hosts, Bernard Gillette and Linda Medine will outline the guidelines and answer questions, correct or incorrect, but they’ll answer questions. 

The stars of the program will be photographers who have supported the articles in the monthly LPS Focus magazine, yep, the very same award-winning magazine created by the talented Renee Pierce. Several others who will be participating include those who have been recognized in the club’s competition. The key guest speakers will come from the audience. It’s going to be an open forum program with a fresh look.

So, now you know how to choose a winning photograph… Come to next month’s Lagniappe and learn how to print and frame these winners.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I have no business putting my work in an exhibition. I’ve got no idea how to even start!”  This lagniappe is for you.

Host Jennifer Esneault will cover the following topics:
1)  What to print (choosing images for exhibition and preparing them to be printed)
2) Where to print (choosing the best print option for you)
3) How to frame it (where to get frames, what to look for in a frame, and gallery standards for framing and hanging in an exhibit)
…and a few other bonus topics, followed by a Q&A.  

Registration is required, so don’t forget to sign up for what will be an excellent educational opportunity for our very talented group.
