The CritiquePosted: September 20, 2007
When ever we take photos, we would love to here some comments about them, especially good ones, but that is not always the case, the critics not always understandable, they might not even know any thing about photography or they could now a thing or two but still not enough to understand your work, here are some types I have encountered from my humble experience:
- The Ignorant: the one who knows nothing about photography, and would say “nice” or “not nice” about your photo, or even worse, he opens his mouth and starts talking with things you would no even understand what the hell he is saying.
- The beginner: he know two words only “over and under” refers to the exposure, as if photography is alla bout that, and I bet you have heard those words so many times it gets to your nerves when some one say it to you again and again.
- The photographer, Here is is a different story, he is experienced but he might or might not understand your work, he could have a different point of view, or your king of photography is not his, so he would not have the experience to judge it.
The point is, only you have the experience to judge your work, and if you asking for some ones opinion, put in mind who he is, before you ask.
