Are you photographers unsure exactly which of the many images you shoot is the very best of the bunch? Through a series of assignments and monthly critiques of everyone’s work, you will learn to effectively cull your images down to the very best using Steve’s criteria-based editing process. You will become more visually literate—gaining the ability to identify and describe the elements of a successful image improving how you both capture and edit photos. 

By learning how to evaluate photographs, you elevate the quality of images taken by yourself and others. This class will grow your awareness for the impact your choices make on a viewer’s interpretation of an image. Your command of shutter speed, depth of field, technical quality and visual weight to tell the story you want to tell will all be covered. 

Part of the difficulty in choosing your best work is because we are just too close to our photographs. It’s hard to disconnect the emotional metadata from the experience when we see the image. Photography is also a natural and often unconscious act of triggering the shutter. We don’t always see what’s in the image which is why it is crucial to find out what others see in your work so you can recognize, adjust, tweak and strengthen your vision and your images. 

The most effective way to both give critique and understand the constructive criticism coming your way is to have a grasp of critical thinking concepts which help you articulate what it is you are saying through your photography and what others are telling you. With critique and practice, you will grow more confident in making choices in the field and at your computer.

The Art Of The Cull with Steve Simon will help you develop your visual vocabulary to get the most from what people say about your work while learning to ask the right questions— to get information you can use to make your work stronger and more satisfying. Learning how to study, review, and analyze images will sharpen your photographic eye in the process.
