About PTD Image Discussion Groups


PTD Image Discussion Groups are a place where PSA members gather and form small groups designed to improve their photographic skills. Every month, each member posts one image for discussion by the rest of the group. By sharing their work in this way, a dialogue is opened between group members and the learning begins. Conversations include kudos for good work, but more importantly, suggestions for image improvement at capture and in post processing. Currently there are 6 different groups studying travel photography. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, participants can expect to improve their photography, post processing skills, & communication, and have fun doing it.
