Have you felt that something wasn't quite right about one of your photos, but didn't know what? Or maybe you want to know what it takes to turn your good image into a great photo. I have put together a staff of professional photographers to provide critiques of your photos.
I’ll select six photos each week to be professionally critiqued, and I'll share the critiques with the whole group. You’ll discover what worked with the photo; what didn’t work; and how the image could be improved.
Over all three streams, there are 72 photos professionally critiqued each and every month! Yours might be next! And even if your image isn’t selected for critique, you’ll gain valuable insights and can apply this knowledge to your next shot.
As a Dash Subscriber, you have the opportunity to take part in Dash Assist. Have ANY of your images critiqued by a professional photographer/coach (not just the ones you take while participating in the Dash). It's just like having an expert sitting by your side – someone in your court who reinforces what you do right, and gives you details on how to fix anything you did wrong. You’ll get advice in exactly the areas you need it.
During their critiques, my professional photographers pick up on small details that are easy to miss (unless you've spent years mastering photography). For example, Sue Wong tried to add some texture to her image on the right. Her coach, Becki, congratulated Sue on her inguinuity, but noted there might be too too much texture. While the bright red leaf adds a point of interest, Becki suggested placing the leaf on some wood, or bare earth. Becki also had suggestions for placement of the leaf, and how to remove the harsh shadows.
