The first week of my latest run of photo critique was inspiring. I received a handful and more captivating images from bloggers who trusted me to give some useful and constructive feedback. For me that is always a humbling experience, whether I am granted the chance to provide feedback here on this site or during my regular workshops. It requires respect and understanding of each photograph’s level to be able to not only praise their photos but also honestly point to possible improvements, without discouraging the recipients.
Many years of teaching workshops have given me confidence in the process, and at this stage I am sorely enjoying both looking at for me new bodies of work and articulate what I see and feel when taking in their artistic expressions. It’s inspirational for me, as well as something I always learn from myself. Of course, when giving my feedback, I don’t claim to know what is right or wrong, but I still hope my opinion will make some sense for those who trust me with their photos. However, it’s only my opinion, and others my see things quite differently and even in opposition to my views. So, for those of you who let me give my feedback, take whatever makes sense to you of what I write and then leave the rest behind.
This first week, only bloggers who already know me through exchange and blogging over the internet have submitted photos to this round of critique. I hope over the next little period that others would like to give it a try as well. So if you have a photo you would like some feedback on, please don’t hesitate to submit a link to my page here, called Picture Critique. Remember, it’s not about submitting excellent photos, but about photos you feel uncertain about or photos you would like to get an outsider’s opinion about.
Keep in mind that I will only keep this possibility for picture critique open another couple of weeks. By the end of the month, I will close the site. If you have a photo—or think you have one—jump on and grab the opportunity; submit a photo, or more correctly submit a link to the photo. I will get back with my honest, sincere and constructive feedback as soon as possible after you have submitted the link. Take a look on the page and get an idea how it works. And then welcome with your photo.
Let me finally add that if you need some ideas to improve your photography I would like to recommend my eBook 10 Great Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Point-and-Shoot Camera. It’s an inexpensive eBook full of inspiration, and it’s available on my website http://www.munchow.no.
