Digital Critiques

Digital Critiques are held six times each year and are an excellent opportunity for members to submit images and receive critiques by professional judges on how to improve our photographic and processing techniques.

These critiques, open to all Camera Club members and non-member Laguna Woods Village residents, also provide excellent forums for members and non-members to learn from the judge’s comments.

Education Committee

This volunteer committee reviews and approves training curriculum, evaluates training presenters and schedules training classes and workshops. The committee operates under the guidance of and is appointed by the Camera Club of Laguna Woods Education Vice President.
