Recommended Critique and Editing Video

I generally don’t recommend a lot of websites and videos I see on the Internet, but I ran into this one last night and it is particularly good for a couple of reasons; he takes images that were submitted to a well known American photo competition and then discusses what could be improved and then demonstrates how to implement those improvements.  He happens to use Capture One, but that is really more of a detail as these edits can be done with any editing tool.

The person doing the talking is Kevin Raber.  Kevin used to run the highly regarded photography website, Luminous Landscape (LuLa), after its founder, Michael Reichmann died a few years ago.  He seems to have founded photopxl.com and took a number of LuLa contributors with him.  Unlike LuLa, the new website is not a pay site and is free.

I’ve watched his first four edits and he nailed the issues I had with the image (and missed a few, in my view), but regardless, he made significant improvements to each one.  The important lesson is how he identifies the flaws; that in my experience is where most people struggle a bit.

The link to the article and video are here.

It is a long (over 1hr 15min) video, but is easy to watch in small pieces.
