Evaluating and Critiquing Your Photographic Art
Participants in this workshop learn to recognize strengths and weaknesses in their images which most prominently impact viewers and better understand criteria that editors and judges consider in photographic image evaluation. A professionally-trained and published photo judge will lead constructive group analyses of the quality and emotional elements in each of a large number of images brought to the session by the attendees themselves. Participants should bring their own photos in either digital or print form for this workshop. To get the most out of this activity, photographers should include some of their best work as well as some pictures they tried- but that didn’t quite “work” as they had hoped. Many successful photographers consider this approach to be the best path for improvement!
