The #1 way to improve as a photographer is to get out and take some photos, review your photos and repeat.

Sometimes you need a fresh eye, a professional photographer’s eye, to help you see what could be improved upon in future photos  – I am here to help!

Photo Critiques on Photorec.TV!

These will be videos shared each week over the next few months.  I know sometimes it can be daunting to put your work out there but as I said it is an awesome way to improve as a photographer and I really focus on constructive feedback and editing tips.

At this time these critique submissions are only available to Photorec.tv members on the bronze plan or higher (a reminder that members  also gets access to my entire library of Lightroom Videos  – over 6 hours of how-to make your photos beautiful, keep your catalog organized and so much more.

  • You are limited to ONE (1) image- make sure you pick an image you want critiqued that you feel has merit and is more than a snapshot
  • The image must be at least 2400px on the short side. Larger files are encouraged.
  • The image must have metadata (focal length, aperture, shutter speed etc) – if there is no metadata (i.e. panorama or shot with manual lens) use the caption box to write out any info)
  • The filename must include your name.
  • Submission of RAW files is encouraged (make sure you submit the RAW and the XML file from Lightroom or I will not be able to see your edits) DNG files work too and will contain your edits without need of the XML file.
  • Images submitted will not be returned to you and although you retain all rights to your image, you are, by submitting photograph(s) giving us express permission to use this image in our critique show and possibly as the cover image for the video and the facebook page Photorec.TV

 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
