Critiques

Each month, we’ll critique a selection of your images. Head to the Upload Image page to find out more and submit your portraits.

When watching the critiques, we suggest you pause the video as each new image is displayed. Take a long, hard look at the image before continuing. What works? What could be improved? Then listen to Paul’s feedback. What did you spot, and what did you miss? Learning how to do this will enable you to identify – and avoid – potential issues with your own portraits before you hit the shutter button.
