My long time friend and marketing guru, Rohn Engh publishes some great newsletters. His recent PhotoDaily newsletter, also includes reprints of other hard hitting articles. When I read the Jay Sousa piece I knew we would have to send it on to our Lens Luggers. We have his permission; so, “Thanks again Rohn!” How close this article comes to the elements of our Field Photography programs, details attached.
But, it also provides a guide to use in reviewing our own images. Set you best or favorite in a group then look at them from these three factors – also the factors that PSA uses in judging images.
Technical – Exposure, focus etc
Composition – Design Elements,
Emotion or feeling – this one is hard to describe but once you see it there, you will immediately recognize it. Often it is light that determines this impact!
Now, for the Jay Sousa piece…
