Critique

I have taken a couple of photography classes over the last few weeks and the one thing that I have enjoyed the most has been the critique.  We go out on assignment, pick our favorite 3 or 4 shots and e-mail them to the teacher.  He puts them in a presentation and we talk about the photos. It’s nice to have feedback on the photos that I’ve shot and to look at other’s work and to pick up new ideas.  I always find it interesting to see other’s work and to examine what someone else thinks is art.  Most of the time I’m pretty defensive about negative criticism… but when it comes to pictures… anything goes because art is in the eye of the beholder.  With my new focus on the editing of the pictures I take… the possibilities are endless.
