About Mentorship

Mentorship classes are one of the many wonderful things offered by the Enchanted Lens Camera Club (ELCC) for members. Each month we present seminars which are free to all members. The Mentorship Classes are typically held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Be on the lookout for an email blast that announces the meetings, locations, and to provide Zoom Links, as necessary.

Mentorship sessions are designed for everyone from beginner to experienced photographers. We cover all sorts of topics. While we do not provide in-depth instruction in various software products or camera techniques, it is our goal to widen your photographic experience. We give you exposure to topics, and let you decide if you would like to delve further into them on your own.

In the past our topics have included such things as:

  • Fundamentals of Photography
  • The World of Photoshop Compositing
  • Using textures in post processing
  • Creating Video Slide Shows
  • Tips and Tricks for Bird Photography
  • Skies and Water – Long Exposure Photography
  • Tips and Tricks in Photoshop
  • Control of Color
  • Infrared Photography

Beyond the Tuesday sessions, on the last Thursday of the month (usually!) LeRoy Perea delights us with his Casual Critique where members can have their photos critiqued by him and members of the audience. Again, these meetings are now via Zoom and meeting announcements and Zoom links are sent out prior to the meetings.  These are a treat not to be missed.We hope to see you this year, both at club meetings and Mentorship sessions.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.  Be sure to check the club calendar for each month’s offerings.

Casual Critique Entry

We now offer two ways that your images can be critiqued – Traditional (how can I improve this image) and Comparative (which one of my images is better and why).  Pick one type. You no longer need to rename your image files!

Only submit one image at a time!  Because the form will rename your file for you, you need to submit one image selecting “1” or “A” and submit the form, then fill out the form again selecting “2” or “B”.
