Photo Critique – Episode 12

by Anthony Morganti

Today I’m pleased to critique the photography of Elenilson Segura. Elenilson sent me in a number of nice images to critique. You can watch the video to see what I have to say about each photograph or you can jump below the video to read my write-up. You may want to consider doing both because I tend to say things I don’t write and I write things I don’t say.

This is a classic image that is usually shot with a wedding band in the book creating a heart shadow on the book’s pages. In this case, PaShia used a lens filter to duplicate the effect.

As I look at it, I think that PaShia used too bright of a light because the paper is too...

Exposing For The Highlights

by Anthony Morganti

Often in my YouTube videos I’ve mentioned, “I exposed for the highlights in this image.” It has come to my attention that not everyone may know what I’m referring to when I say that. In this article, I will attempt to explain what it means, why I do it and how to do it.

Photo Critique – Episode 8

by Anthony Morganti

In this episode of Photo Critiques I’m super psyched to critique the work of Mark Kraus. Mark is a superb nature and wildlife photographer and to tell you the truth, there isn’t much critiquing I can do that will improve his images. What I can do is show what Mark did right to capture his superb images and hopefully, those of you that are interested in photographing nature and wildlife will gain from it.

You can watch the video or if you prefer, jump below the video where I do my critique writeup. Remember, you can click on an image to make it larger.
