For the last four weeks I've been doing an introduction to DSLR photography course at the Australian Centre for Photography. Over the course of the four weeks we were given homework which was to be shown and discussed at the last class. Below are two of my images that the teacher singled out as my better ones.
It was interesting to be on the receiving end of a critique and slightly unnerving if I'm telling the truth. Overall I think it was a good experience for me - photography is not all point and shoot (not that I ever thought it was!). I genuinely really enjoyed the class and plan to continue photography in the future (as a hobby). Even though this has shown me that having your work discussed and critiqued can be a nerve-wracking experience, I still feel it's imperative to learning and growth.
Having said that, feel free to critique the critic and comment on the photographs. Not planning on giving up my day job just yet!
NB. to put it in context the first was an exercise in capturing colour and the second in capturing reflections.
