January Plus critiques open, with prizes!

We hope everyone had a safe, happy and productive end to 2019, and that your photographic juices are recharged and ready for the new year.

The January 2020 critiques will open this evening, January 7, and we’re going to open the year with a special theme. We’d like you to go through your 2019 work, and pick a photo that you believe is one of your best, but which you haven’t yet submitted to the critiques. We’re hoping that, after a year of watching the critiques videos, and by taking a fresh look at your work, you’ll find a hidden gem, or something that you feel is close, and you want to share it with us.

December Plus Critiques recap

We’re back on track with the monthly critiques, and our December session is now live — click on the thumbnail above to view the video.

We saw a lot of great photos this month, and we wish we could write about every one we mention in the video. That said, here are a few of the photos Hudson and I felt deserving of an extra mention this time around:

Tent Building at Night, by DPlockard

This photo jumped out to us as a superlative nighttime reflection shot. The color of the tent building, reflected almost perfectly in the pool, adds a beautiful glow to the overall scene. The edges of the frame have enough detail and light to provide a bit more balance overall, and the tips of the building are nestled inside the frame, as they should be. Hudson noticed immediately that the sign, visible in the facade, is missing in the reflection, which offsets slightly the symmetry of the scene, making it even more powerful. Magnificent work.

Coming Soon to ON1 Plus! How to Shoot Products

In this video, ON1’s Dylan Kotecki is going to walk you through the basics of product photography. He will cover gear considerations, explore various lighting setups, and explain how to stage a scene.

After the shoot, he’ll take the photos he captured at different exposures by light painting and combine them into a single composite with simple masking and blending techniques. This video will be made free to all Plus members later this month.
