Tuesday –  End of year photo critique (Do on Google Slides)

Photo Critique – Post as WK18 Photographer Critique

Choose one photograph from FIVE different photographers – 5 photos total
Please do this project in paragraph form.

Step 1
Label the picture you are critiquing – Who is the photographer?
Look at the composition or content in the photograph. What is the center of interest in the picture?

Where did the photographer place it in the frame?

Did the photographer get close enough to the subject to include only what is important, or are there wasted parts of the picture with elements that do not add to the message of the photo?

Step 2
Next, observe the background in the photograph. How does the background add or distract from the message of the photo?

Step 3
Take a look at the technical camera work involved in the photograph. Are the subjects sharp and clearly in focus? Is the photo exposed properly (too dark/light)?

Step 4
Finally, offer your own personal feelings on the photograph.

What do you like about the selected subject?

Is it an emotional shot, a story, a statement, a humorous photo?

What would you do differently if you had the chance to take the same photograph?

How to earn your points:

5 – Demonstrate knowledge of composition, technique, creativity, color correction and skill

4 – Demonstrate knowledge of composition, technique, possibly color correction and skill
