WANT TO FURTHER YOUR PHOTO SKILLS? CREATE A CRITIQUING CIRCLE!
Because Google+ does not currently offer nested/public groups, I have created a Photo Critiquing List on Group.As.
The idea is to add your name to this list so that you can find other individuals that want to learn to be better photographers as well. From here you can can create your own circle and then post images that you wish to be critiqued to your "Photo Critiquing" Circle.Click on the link below and add your name if you are interested.
By joining this list, you are allowing others in the list to post images to you and in turn you, you can do the same. However this only works if you both give and receive critiques. Everyone loves engagement. By learning to train your eye to see what you like and do not like about an image, you can then apply that to your own work.INSTRUCTIONS
1.) Add your name to the List
2.) Check back in 1 hour
3.) Create a new circle on G+
4.) Go back to the list and added everyone on this list to your "Photo Critiquing" circle
5.) When you are ready and want a critique, add "BEHIND THE LENS - PHOTO CRITIQUE" to the very top of your post (MAKE SURE TO ONLY POST TO YOUR "PHOTO CRITIQUE" CIRCLE. WE DON"T WANT TO ANNOY OUR OTHER FOLLOWERS)
6.) If you are part of this list, you then need to give some feedback to the poster
Then we all win! :)
This is for CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM feedback. This means that you have to explain WHY
you don't like something or want it changed. Just random feedback with no explanation doesn't help anyone learn.NEAT TRICK
If you sign into Group.As and verify your profile (its very easy and there are instructions) then when you go to this list, it will tell you who you have in your circles and who you don't. Your G+ account has to publicly show who you have in circles though.
It is great for staying active in the Photo Critique GroupPlease RESHARE THIS POSTBEHIND THE LENS
