Wow — we are getting just wonderful feedback from this episode, and we’re now going to be making these blind critiques a regular feature each month. It’s only our second one, and we’ll continue to tweak the process and hopefully improve in our delivery and advice each time.

I saw a comment yesterday from a viewer on Google+ (+Amy Johnson) and she so gets it. She wrote:

“Thanks so much for another great episode this week! Never new that watching critiques of other peoples’ photos could be so educational!”

Matt and I do these blind critiques with our class at our hands-on workshops, and invariably we read in our workshop evaluations that it was one of the most valuable learning experiences of the entire week.

I posted the full episode here, and I’ll do a post here next month before we do the next one so you guys will have a chance to submit some images for consideration. Thanks to everyone who participated in our show this week. :)

On Wednesday’s episode of “The Grid” (our weekly talk show about photography, broadcast live each Wednesdays), I took some time at the end of the show to answer a lot of the questions people had here on the blog about how I post processed the images seen in my photo book from my recent trip to India (link to my “Four Days in India Part 1, and Part 2 from earlier this week).

The video clip above shows the Lightroom [Camera Raw] and Photoshop tweaks I did to the image, but there’s also some talk about shooting portraits on the streets, including a great street shooting tip from Zack Arias who was our in-studio guest. Lots of fun on the show (our topic was our Predictions for 2012 for the photo industry), and if want to catch the full episode (Zack was an awesome guest), you can watch it free online right here.

Have a great weekend everybody, and join me here Monday for my annual “Best of 2011” post.

 

Join Matt Kloskowski and me today at 4:00 pm ET LIVE on “The Grid” with our topic: How to find the right path to learning photography (it’s not what you think).

Going to be a wild show (as usual). Erik Bernskiold will be stopping by the studio, and we got some cool prizes, too. Hope you can make it (and we’d be very appreciative if you’d help us spread the word about today’s show). :)
