Out of the photos submitted this week for critique, I chose this image by Jason Inman, primarily because his email was thorough and contained all the information I asked for the in photo critique introduction post. In addition Jason said one thing in his email that I admire, “Please be ruthless…I need to know just where I stand!” That statement alone was the hook, so if you’re interested in having your photo critiqued, you’ll need to exhibit the passion in photography I felt in his email—just don’t copy his words!
Jason also mentioned that, “I have been shooting for about a year and a half now, and would like to work my way up to shooting fashion editorial stuff….” He further stated, “I am visually impaired, so I have a very slow and deliberate shooting style, focusing mainly on composition, light and shadow…worrying about the details later in Photoshop… I have to rely entirely on the auto focus in the field.” It’s these statements and what I saw when I visited Jason’s website at www.inmagine.ca that provides for my audiovisual response further down in this photoblog post that I hope you will enjoy.
While I don’t have time to go through everyone’s websites or online portfolios, I felt the need to visit Jason’s site, and while website presentation is another critique in itself, I’ll leave that to the professionals that handle websites at liveBooks.com and ask Jason to seek their advice if he’s interested in improving his online presence in a more professional manner. So I leave you with this thought as you listen to the approximately five-minute critique of his submitted photo, want my attention, show me your passion in photography and that’s why in this critique, I’ll make reference to another photo on Jason’s website in addition to my thoughts on the submitted photo. Enjoy!
