During my time as Lecturers and Judges Secretary for the L&CPU, I was often asked to provide a reading list. Here are some links to articles that may help.

However, there is nothing better than attending the judges’ course and gaining experience of competitions at all levels.

Read widely on photography and art…hone your photographic skills. Enjoy!

Articles on this page are included as a wide reading list and opinions therein are not necessarily endorsed by the L&CPU.
