Critiquing Photographs: Learning the Language of a Photograph

Critiquing Photographs

As photographers, we love looking at photographs. Quite often we instinctively know what we like and don’t like about an image. But can we articulate this in words? Why is this important?

Understanding and speaking the language of the photograph is an essential skill as a photographer. It is important to effectively talk about our own images as well as give feedback to our peers. In this lecture, Eileen will introduce the language of the photograph and discuss the important elements to address in a constructive photographic critque. We will practice talking about photographs and come away with skills to appreciate images through words.
