Everyone wants to be able to take better pictures, that’s a fact, but how?
Well the logical first step is getting friendly advice from a professional that will give you ways to get closer to that goal. Not a Portfolio Review, those tend to be for people with a portfolio and can handle heavy criticism. A critique session is much more personal and skill building in that recognizing as much as what is going right is as important as the areas to put more work into.
Join Chris Alvanas for an online one on one image critique where you can learn the strengths and weaknesses of your images and get guidance onhow to take them to the next level. No matter what your level it is the best way to improve your skills in making images.
- This One -On-One Image Critique is geared for the more advanced photographer, seeking ideas on how to make his images stand out.
- The photographer will supply 5 images (2 of each image; 1-as shot, 1-processed) and will describe what they are looking for in the session.
- Images need to be supplied in jpeg format with 1200px on the long side and will need to be submitted at least 5 days prior to the critique.
- An overall critique will be given to every image and then each will be walked through showing the area of concern.
- The instructor will discuss what is and what is not working and provide suggestions for moving forward.
- He will also demonstrate his interpretation of the image.
- There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions.
- When registering, you will list some dates and times that work for your session.
- This is an online image critique with discussion and feedback (via shared screens).
More details will be provided in the confirmation email.
