Mike Sea was our facilitator for the evening, our fourth evaluation night of the year. I have to say I tip my hat to Mike, his first time at our club and he chose to try something completely new.
Mike gave each member a number from 1 to 8 and then asked us all to get up and sit with fellow members with the same number. Each group was then then given a card with words like composition, storytelling, and aesthetics. As Mike selected an image he asked each group to comment on the image based on the words on their card. Talk about getting audience participation, genius!
Sadly - and I mean this in a positive way - members submitted over 70 images and the format had to be adjusted or we would have been there till midnight!
Mike is used to judging at clubs who still do competitions, so presenting at Lane Cove was a refreshing experience for him and member feedback at the end of the evening was very positive.
Below - and above - is a small selection of the images submitted by our members on the night. Clicking on the image will enlarge into a lightbox.
