Image Critique: The Glow - PPA Today

Image Critique: The Glow

By Sarah Ackerman

Hopefully by now you've heard what wonders entering your images into photographic competition and asking for critiques can do for you, your artistry and your business. PPA district competitions are currently happening across the country and the International Photographic Competition (IPC) is set to open May 26, 2015. 

Photographic competitions are an excellent way to better your technical skill set. In many cases, you don't know what you don't know - and by entering into competitions and listening to the critiques, IPC judges will identify areas that might need improvement, as well as areas that you already excel in. For some, it might sound scary at first, but don't you want to become an even better photographer? This is a strategic jumping off point!

Here is Larry Lourcey, M.Photog.Cr., CPP critiquing Megan DiDiero's "The Glow" which made it into the General Collection at last year's International Photographic Competition.

And the educational opportunities don't stop there! You can watch the live judging of the district competitions or the IPC via live stream! From the comfort of your home, you'll be able to listen to everything the judges say about the images, how they score and when they challenge decisions. The first live streaming will be of the Northeast District March 13-14, 2015. Check the district's landing page for the live stream link!

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 Sarah's 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.
