What’s the Best Way to Improve Your Photography?
Just because you know how to control exposure doesn’t mean you take good photos. Photos that are technically perfect can still be boring and lifeless. But that thing that adds interest and life to photos? THAT’S the hard part.
Learning to critique photos systematically will help you identify how you can improve your images.
Does this describe you? You’re getting pretty good with your camera. You can manage proper exposure and focus most of the time.
But still, you wonder whether your photos are good.
Or you wonder why your technically correct photo doesn’t have the eye-catching oomph that your favorite photographer’s work has.
Learning to assess what makes a photo great – and where it can improve – is the key to becoming a better photographer.
Lucky for us, critiquing a photo isn’t a special talent that only some of us possess. It’s a systematic process that we can all follow.
You know when you see a photo you like. It’s not hard to judge whether:
- The photo is sharp
- The color is good
- The exposure is right
But how do you figure out what makes that photo special so that you can apply the same techniques to your own images? More importantly, what makes a professional photographer, a professor, or a fancy critic single out a photo as being “important” or “artistic?”
In this mini-course, you’ll learn to “read” a photo. What are its strengths? What are its weaknesses? And how can you duplicate it?
And this technique is easier to learn than you might imagine.
