LensCulture Submission Review 2016
In May 2016, I decided to enter the Magnum Photography Awards 2016. This gave me the opportunity to ask for a LensCulture Submission Review and get professional, critical feedback on my photography.
First of all, it was an interesting experience for me as it meant exposing myself to a very critical opinion of professionals on the judging panel. Not to mention having my work evaluated against that of some extremely talented worldwide photographers.
Finally, after a few months anticipation, I received, in my consideration, some excellent and encouraging feedback.
An extract of the submission review can be found below:
“…I really enjoyed having the opportunity to review your images. This work immediately caught my eye.
This work shows great potential. You have clear command over light, as well as an understanding of composition. All of your images are well edited in post-processing as well. I believe your strongest single image The Only Way Is Up. I enjoy your use of leading lines. This is also one of the most unique images in the group overall.”
The full review, along with some very interesting recommended reading for photography enthusiasts, can be found on my website using this link: Magnum Photography Awards 2016 – LensCulture Submission Review.
