Photography Critiques Suck!

Learn The Best Way To Get USEFUL Feedback On Your Photography

A General Photography Presentation by Joe Edelman

Improve your photography critiques.
Discover the art of soliciting comments that elevate your work and respect your unique artistic journey!

Ever felt deflated after a critique of your prized photograph? You’re not alone. While feedback can serve as a beacon of growth, many photographers find themselves at the receiving end of less-than-helpful commentary. Traditional critiques often come loaded with biases, entrenched in arbitrary rules, and devoid of genuine empathy for the artist’s vision.

Join Joe as he delves deep into the world of photography critiques and tears down the traditional pillars of feedback. Unravel the science behind why most critiques miss the mark and learn how to transform this pattern.

This presentation is not just for those seeking feedback; it’s a guide for anyone who wants to empower fellow photographers with insightful, constructive reviews. Joe’s dynamic approach promises a paradigm shift in how we perceive, give, and receive feedback in the photography community.

Here’s what you’ll walk away with:

Feedback Science: Explore the psychological and emotional impacts of critiques, both good and bad.
