Category Archives: Image Critique
I’m posting a new photo critique. This recording also announces a new website I’ve been developing on behalf of the Twin Cities Area Council of Camera Clubs. Please visit and register. The site has some really cool features and opportunities for folks in the Twin Cities and beyond. The address is http://www.tcphotonow.com To view ALL the content, you must register. I’m publishing my video content there and here as well, but my blog will remain just that; a blog. The new site is for an entirely different purpose. ok, ‘nough said.
Today’s photo came through TC Photo Now and is a landscape image. In this photo critique I discuss the components of constructing a landscape photograph as well as how we can use color theory to create depth and movement in an image.
On occasion I produce photo critiques as an educational service to my blog audience. I recently produced one on behalf of a new website I launched for Twin Cities camera clubs, called Twin Cities Photo Now (http://www.tcphotonow.com). I’ll be regularly producing photo critiques for this new site and republishing them here for you.
This inaugural photo critique was submitted by Chet Ellingson, a blog follower and workshop participant from this past summer. Chet recently returned from Namibia with some amazing photography and submitted this image for critique at Twin Cities Photo Now. If you want a photograph critiqued, please visit Twin Cities Photo Now, register with the site and make a submission. I’d love to hear from you. I’d also love to read your comments, thoughts, etc. on this critique and Chet’s image here on the blog.
In this episode I discuss basic issues in posing a subject in an environmental setting, and specifically talk about settings you can try with your camera flash to improve the lighting quality on your subject.
In this episode Alec discuss some basic composition issues in shooting large, scenic landscapes. You’ll be introduced to the concepts of dynamic line, physical and color depth in an image, all building towards more dynamic and memorable images.
