A bluntly honest and constructive critique of your photographs by professional photographer, Paul David Smith.
When it comes to improving your photographs through an honest critique, you can sometimes be stuck between a rock and a hard place. Your friends and family don’t want to hurt your feelings so they are likely to tell you your photos are great, even if they think otherwise. Similarly getting somebody with a wealth of photography experience to take the time to look over your images and give you good honest feedback, regardless of whether they love them or hate them isn’t easy to find.
This service is a very honest, very blunt and straight forward critique of your photographs. We’ll look at each of your images in depth, covering composition, lighting, storytelling, editing, subject matter and a whole lot more. The aim is to give you areas to look to improve your skill set.
Paul has worked a professional photographer since 2008 and critiques his own work in a very black and white way, he doesn’t beat around the bush and will tell you exactly what he thinks and why. If he loves your photos, he’ll tell you. If he doesn’t like them or thinks there are areas that they an be improved, he’ll tell you that too.
If you have ever wanted to know what people really think about your photographs then we’ve got you covered. This service though, perhaps isn’t for anybody easily offended!
You are effectively paying for an hour of Paul’s time and as such we’ll cover as many photographs during that time as we can. We’ll suggest you put them in order of priority, with the images most important to you first. This way we’ll be sure to cover the images you are most keen to get feedback on.
This is a 1-2-1 image critique and to ensure you get the best out of the video chat we recommend only one person being present to avoid distractions.
This course will take place via online video call and as such, you can do the training wherever you are. We just ask that you choose a location that will allow you to chat without distractions.
You will need a laptop / tablet or smartphone loaded with Microsoft Teams to do this course.
Please ensure you have a camera with a fully charged battery, lenses and any accessories that you use frequently with you. Microsoft Teams allows you to share your screen so we’ll ask you to show us a selection of images that you have taken.
