Critiquing Our Photographs By Using The Word Crisp
When we critique our work we use words, however we may use a different word than someone else when talking about the same thing.
What does the word crisp mean when it comes to photography? Better still, what is it that were observing in our photography that is bringing up that word? In terms of the composition of our photograph; is it the light? Is it something we did with our camera? Whatever it is we’ve got to be specific in terms of what were observing so we can be specific about what element of our composition we’re describing with whatever word we use.
Words help us clarify and describe. Specifically, we can clarify what were describing in terms of light or camera operation. In addition we can relate that word to an element of composition. For example, I use the word “blur” when critiquing my photograph. Furthermore I relate that word to the light I’m observing in terms of movement/motion and I also relate that word to camera operation in terms of shutter speed.
Crsip isn’t a word I would use but if were gonna use it, I’d use it in a very narrow and specific way in order to help em clarify what I’m observing in terms of my critique and what elements of composition I use in relation to the characteristic of my photograph that I’m critiquing.
We may choose different words, but whatever words we use to describe a tree, the tree is still the tree.
