Image Critique 3

Welcome to Image Critique #003! More of your work under the magnifier. Three images from three different photographers.

Image Critique 5

Four more of your images under the loupe, OK, well in Lightroom anyway.  Today we’re going to be talking about overexposure (and a possible route to getting away with it), heptagonal diaphragms, black backgrounds – and not so black backgrounds – and bits that seem to creep into the edge of the frame. If you would like your images critiqued, please use the ‘image critique’ menu option above to submit a file (or more than one of you wish). Your …

Image Critique 6

Four more of your images under the loupe, OK, well in Lightroom anyway.  Today we’re going to be talking about cropping, interaction, making images timeless, sensor dust spots and (and why wouldn’t we be?) bathing in milk.  As always, beautiful images to inspire and engage. If you would like your images critiqued, please use the Image Critique menu option above to submit a file (or more than one of you wish). Your image will then appear in one of the …

Image Critique 17

Four more portraits – all people this episode (no dogs for all you canine portrait fanatics!) As always, some lovely work in here. I also go through the criteria by which images are judged in photographic competitions using the SWPP standard criteria (I think the WPPI criteria are almost identical.) They can be found here if you’re curious. If you would like your images critiqued, please use the Image Critique menu option above to submit a file (or more than …

Searching For Giants

Making your shoots fun for your subjects is key to getting memorable portraits. This image was the final shot of the day and the result of a playful interaction. The shoot with George and his parents was over, and we were walking back to the studio. I had plenty of shots already, but then we passed a church with a huge door. An image formed in my mind. Note: to create the sense of height in the doors, I lay …
