Epilogue: Where Do You Go from Here?  > Critique your results

Critique your results

Being honestly self-critical in evaluating your photography will serve you well on the way to improving your technique. Unfortunately, most of us are not the best evaluators of our own work. It’s difficult for us to separate our images’ artistic merits from the physical effort and emotion invested in capturing them.

Seeking the candid opinions of others gives you a completely different perspective and helps you see things you might otherwise miss. In the beginning, honest criticism of your art might be hard for your ego to bear, but forthright opinions can be very constructive if you’re willing to listen. The intent of critique is to help improve your photography, so don’t take it personally.

Consider enrolling in a photography workshop where you’ll receive one-on-one instruction and feedback on your images from a professional photographer. Take advantage of direct access to the instructor’s knowledge and expertise. Get answers to your questions and concerns. Workshops also provide opportunities to exchange ideas about techniques and share information about equipment with fellow workshop students. You’ll find that you’re not alone in your experiences.
