Picture Perfect Critique – April 2014

Picture Perfect Critique

I have always been an advocate for the invaluable educational opportunity that image critique can bring. I think it’s one of the very best ways to understand your work. Having your photos critiqued can bring to the surface both weaknesses and strengths you might not even know are there. Equipped with this knowledge, you can work on those aspects that need fine-tuning. Most of the issues with images fall into four main categories: technical, location, background and pose/expression.

Every month, I will critique five images chosen by Shutter from reader entries.

The best part is that I will critique them on video, and use PhotoShop to draw callouts to show you where the issues lie. It’ll be as if we were sitting in the same room going over your images together. I love this industry, and I have dedicated many years to pushing my fellow photographer friends to invest in their education and prioritize their skills and mastery of the art.

    Hello! Thanks for a great magazine. I have a little suggestion regarding the online version of the magazine. Usually when I have time to sit down and read the magazine I like to listen to some music at the same time. I normally do this on my iPad. The problem is that every time you want to flip page there’s a page flipping sound which stops the music and there’s no way to turn the page flipping sound off (that I’ve discovered). The result is that you have to change app and restart the song every time you flip a page. Maybe it’s possible to add an option to turn off the page flipping sound? Anyhow, thank’s again for a great magazine. Best regards /Mike the Swede
