July Critiques Video – and August Plus photo contest!

July is traditionally a slow month, photo-wise, but we still received some good submissions for the Plus Photo Critiques. It’s great to see long-time posters raising their game, and well as a few critiques newcomers. Hudson and I picked more than 20 photos from the group to talk about this month; click on the link above to view the video.

June Plus Photo Critiques Recap

We’re sorry that we were so late getting to the recap for June’s Plus Photo Critiques. We can only plead for some understanding: Rick was working on the User Guide update for ON1 360, and Hudson was busily finishing up his latest course for ON1 Plus members. July will be slightly off, timing wise, as well, which we’ll talk about at the bottom of the post.

June Plus Critiques Are Open

The June 2020 Plus Photo Critiques gallery is now open; you can submit your photos on the uploads page.

This month, we would like you to think about producing a still life. You don’t have to emulate the Old Masters, as Mike Volckman did in last month’s critiques (and shown above), but think about a group of objects — fruit, flowers, vases and stemware, sets of tools, anything, really that you can arrange in a group. Think about lighting and your background. The subjects should be clear and well defined, and use the rules of composition to arrange the subjects in a way that helps the viewer’s eye into the scene.

May Plus Critiques Recap

We had some stellar photos posted this month in the ON1 Plus Critiques gallery. We also saw a group of new folks posting, and we saw a lot more activity in the comments, both of which we love to see. Thanks to everyone for participating!

Hudson and I went through the gallery, and chose 30 photos that we felt showcased good work, or offered some teaching moments that could help us all. And, since we can’t critique every photo submitted, we have gone through and commented on many of the photos submitted. And, with that, here are a few of our favorite photos from the month.

3253 Berry Picker, by Paule Hjertaas

Paule’s shot of a Hepatic Tanager with a berry in its beak is spectacular: the face, eye and the berry are perfectly in focus, as is the claw holding the bird to the branch. And the composition is wonderful too, with a lovely blurred background, and the right amount of negative space at the bottom right of the frame. Just wonderful, Paule.
