When you post, please choose carefully. Post your best work. Pick images you would like others to see and on which you really want to have critical input.
A critique is not a putdown. Critical comments are meant to help you improve your work and see from a different perspective.
Please describe your images – tell us what you wanted to express in the image, what goal you were trying to achieve, what you particularly like about the result, what you feel may be missing or flawed, special efforts you made, or any other information that may help the viewer to understand your work.
Please provide as much technical detail as possible, such as focal length of the lens, aperture and shutter speed setting, film (brand and type), time of day, weather, season, lighting conditions, difficulties of composition, camera on tripod or hand-held, and any other relevant information.
Q: How long will it take before I get to see my critique?
A: We will post critique videos once a month on the 15th of the month.
Q: How long do I have to access my video critique?
A: We will keep your critique video online for at least one year. During that time you will have unlimited access to watch it online.
Q: What if I am unhappy with my critique?
A: We give CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK on your photography! At YKS, we are ready to provide you with the kind of loving, honest, personal feedback that all artists needs to grow.
Posting your favorite images on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter can be a rewarding experience but social media alone will not help you become a better photographer. So where can you turn to get an unbiased informative critique, from an experienced photography teacher, without any fear?
We are here to help! We are so confident that you will learn something insightful from our monthly video critiques even if your image is not one of the chosen ones!
Q: Will my image be selected?
A: We select 50 images at RANDOM every month. There is no guarantee your image will be chosen. But you can upload a new image each month!
