Lesson 1 • Critique

  1. 1. Critiquing Photography Unit 5 The Photographer
  2. 2. Learning Goals Today, I will… • Have knowledge and understanding of art critiquing • Be able to construct a photography critique using key terms and proper formatting
  3. 3. What is an art critique? An art (photography) critique should aim to help the artist improve their work and gain a better understanding art/photography.
  4. 4. What is an art critique? Should aim to be… • Constructive • Objective • Focus on 3 key elements; 1. Technical qualities 2. Composition 3. Emotional appeal
  5. 5. Technical Qualities • FOCUS: Is the image sharp, in focus? If not, is it intentionally soft and successful? • CLEANLINESS: Is it free of scratches, dust spots, stains, lens flare, etc? • EXPOSURE: Is it too light, too dark or just right? Are there overexposed (blown/washed out) or underexposed areas? • DEPTH OF FIELD: Is DoF used to control the viewer’s eye? • LIGHTING: Is there too much contrast in the lighting? Too flat (no range in shadows or highlights)? Or, just right? • COLOURS: Does it have neutral colours or a strange colour cast?
  6. 6. Composition • BALANCE: Is the image aligned correctly or is it crooked? • LOGIC: Is the arrangement of the visual elements (subjects and objects) effective? • PURPOSE: Is there a strong centre of interest, focal point, pattern or design? Where is your eye drawn to? • CLARITY OF FRAMING: Is it simple, yet complete and without distracting elements? What should and shouldn’t be in the frame? – Think of S.EX
  7. 7. Emotional Appeal • DYNAMIC: Does it grab and keep your attention? Does it have the "wow" factor? • PROVOCATIVE: Does it excite your imagination, or create a strong emotion in you? • CREATIVE: Does it show a familiar subject in a new, unusual and yet effective way? • UNUSUAL: Does it show a very unusual subject in an effective way? • What emotion do you feel when you look at the photo? Or lack of? • Did the photographer connect with his subjects or do they look tense, posed or unnatural? • Does the photograph tell a story, or part of one? – It could be as simple as, “here are my kids whom I adore” or “here’s my dog catching a Frisbee.” – Or a very deep one such as, “the affects of war on the citizens of Vietnam, or Syria”
