I saw this video of a critique by Jared Polin, but some may know hime as Fro Knows Photo. You don’t have to like his work but what I really like about him is his true and honest critiques for other photographers.
This, to me, is how a lot of critiques should be, an honest assessment of the work with constructive criticism and advice for the photographer to use and learn from. Family and friends are probably the worst for useable criticism of your work, especially if you are starting out and trying to progress.
We all like to hear when people like or love our work, but also being able to hear why people don’t like our work can be just as good, if not humbling.
