Image Critique: Plastic Feelings - PPA Today

Image Critique: Plastic Feelings

By Sarah Ackerman

Although the 2015 International Photographic Competition (IPC) has wrapped, it's never too early to get a jump on next year's images!

If you entered this year's competition and requested a critique, this is a sample of what you'll see! Here is the critique of Erik Vicino's image "Plastic Feelings" by Richard Avalos, M.Photog.Cr., CPP. This image merited, but was not accepted into the General or Loan Collections. In this video you'll find out what held this image back. Check it out to see if any of the changes could be applied to your next entry at District Competitions next year.

Hopefully seeing this critique will help you better understand what the IPC Judges are looking for next year! If you ordered a critique from this year's IPC, log on to see your very own on under the My PPA section. Results for all of the International Photographic Competition can be found here. Dates for the 2016 competition schedule will be released shortly!

Sarah Ackerman is known around PPA as #Sarah in part because she handles all things social media and in order to differentiate herself from the other Sarahs in the office. Sarah loves improv comedy (think "Whose Line") and routinely performs around Atlanta. When she's not tweeting/facebooking/instagramming all of the action at PPA, she can be found gallivanting around the world or wandering around the woods with her pup, but more than likely she's on stage making people giggle.
