On Wednesday, October 5, 2017, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., about 25 IACC members had the pleasure of learning about image critiquing from Akemi Matsubuchi, who has a Bachelor or Applied Arts in Still Photography and is currently an instructor at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.
The evening was spent reviewing the 21 digital images provided by the participating members. Akemi had not seen any of the images in advance (e.g., macro, landscape, architecture [gallery, bridge, church, lighthouse] street photography, black and white, abstract, infrared, and still life). She ensured that positive comments were made throughout the critique but she also ensured that each photographer received constructive feedback to help improve the work.
We all knew (from the previous session with Akemi) that there are four noteworthy components of a critique: impact, composition, technical quality and presentation.
Throughout the evening, IACC members felt very comfortable offering their comments about the images.
All in all, this was a very successful workshop that helped participants better understand how to deliver a critique and how to benefit from receiving a critique.
A sincere thank you to Akemi for taking the time to share her knowledge and expertise.
The following is a list of some of the critiquing comments which were made by Akemi. The comments are not in any particular order.
