Presentation and Critique by Ulan Valusek to the Nevada County Camera Club

Ulan (Ed) Valusek will be spearheading “The Photo Critique” meeting for the Nevada County Camera Club at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 26 at Unity in the Gold Country Spiritual Center, 180 Cambridge Court, Grass Valley. The meeting will focus on a more in-depth critique of member photos. As a certified Photographic Society of America image analyst, Valusek will be sharing insights on what he looks for when he judges a photo competition. Valusek says he hopes to challenge camera club members to get out of their comfort zone – get out of their “photographic rut” and to encourage them to try something different. Members will not only have their photos critiqued but be able to listen to the evaluation process by a well respected and experienced judge.

Valusek has been taking pictures since the 8th grade, for 63 years. In 1967, he began industrial and commercial photography. Later he continued his love of photography freelancing for the Marysviille Appeal Democrat. Valusek, a resident of Yuba City, has been judging photos for 10 years and has been a certified image analyst with the Photographic Society of America for three years.

Categories for submitted photos include black and white; color; nature – Landscapes; nature – wildlife; travel; technical; photojournalism; and the monthly subject – shadows.

The public is welcome and there is no cost for first time guests. Currently, the club has over 100 members and aims to help members refine their photographic skills.
