Group Critique, Select, and Edit Session
Do you wonder if your photos are even good? Wouldn't it help to have a professional view your work with a constructive evaluation to include feedback, suggestions and tips? The purpose of critiques is to offer one's impression of a photo. Since we are all coming from varied backgrounds, this creates varying opinions. A good thing. But remember a critique is NOT a criticism. People tend to confuse them. It's an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the larger "picture," improving your skills as a photographer.
