How do we take our photography to the next level of good and on up towards excellence? In an on-line article entitled "Kill Your Darlings", Alan Steadman gives some great advice as to how to become more critical (in the good sense) of your own work. He recommends:
1)Take time away - this was a lot easier when we didn't have immediate feedback!
2) Ask for other's opinions - that's precisely what we do at Photo Critiques!
3) Trash it! - this is what we should do more of, but read the article to get the particulars!
So, now that the hard part is out of the way, bring your sacrificial lambs, er, photos, and we'll roast them on the altar of good taste and aesthetics. Be prepared to answer the following questions:
What's the subject?
Why did you do x, y & z?
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
