Group Description

Online Critique and Discussion Group At The Photographer’s Forum

In summary, the Photographer’s Critique and Discussion Group is a place for photographers to give and get useful critiques.  And, through the process of giving and getting critiques, become better photographers.   

Undoubtedly, by providing critiques that are meant to offer useful guidance, not baseless opinions, all photographers involved become better photographers by participating in the group. 

In addition, the Critique and Discussion Group has rules. And these rules create an atmosphere that is supportive and is meant to improve our photography skills and practice.  

Specifically, both the photographer asking for the critique and the photographers offering the critique are provided with guidelines.
And the guidelines make the critique process a learning experience to become better photographers.   

Furthermore, all photographers are welcome regardless of experience or camera used. And yup, the camera on your phone is OK. 

To clarify how the group operates, here’s how it works: 

  1. Photographers display a photograph that they’d like critiqued along with a brief statement about the work.
  2. Photographers offering the critique follow specific guidelines that will provide a critique meant to be a discussion based on the statement made by the photographer looking for the critique (see #1).
  3. Video tutorials or other media may be part of the process.

Benefits of membership in The Critique and Discussion Group.

  • The Critique and Discussion Group is a learning experience through critiques based on discussions rather than a critique based on a non-informative “like” or “dislike”.
  • The process provided in the group hones our photography skills and practice through the observation and discussion of our work.

Specifically,  by using the Critique And Discussion Group as the platform, we’ll use critiques and discussions as a way to improve our photography.

Furthermore, by participating in the Critique And Discussion Group we’ll use the critique process to improve our visual vocabulary.

And, in the process of improving our visual vocabulary, become acquainted with the elements of composition that are present in ALL photographs.

Because by becoming familiar with the elements of composition we’ll apply the elements of composition thoughtfully and intentionally to our work.

And when we thoughtfully and intentionally apply the elements of composition to our work, our photographs become unique compositions

The Basis Of This Group

In short, this group is based on the way that critiques are asked for and provided during Sam D’Amico’s photography classes in Washington, DC
