Portfolio Critique Of Chris D – A Phlearn Video Tutorial

Second Ever Portfolio Critique

Chris, Iram, and I are very proud to bring you the second ever portfolio critique on Phlearn! The goal of this critique is to help not only Chis, but the whole Phamily become better.

This Episode is over 2:00HR long and took me over 12 hours to make. I know it is asking a LOT to give that much time of your day to this. Don’t feel like you must. We cover 6 images in this Critique, a perfect way to break it up! Watch one or two today, and come back for more later.

FROM CHRIS

What I want from the critique:

I want to know what’s representing me in the best way. I want to be able to define and refine my style. I seem to shoot lots of different things but I prefer the portrait/fashion/anything to do with people stuff.
How do I push my images further? I feel that I could do more and excel in conceptual photography. I want to know which images are holding me back and why the strong images are representing me the best way.

Direction I want to take my work:

I want to be able to do photography for a living. I’m giving myself a timeline of around 2 years. I don’t want to have any regrets when I hit 30! I have a good job now, but it’s not fulfilling in the way that photography could be. When I was working in Regina, I was getting pretty busy. Then I moved to MTL, and asides from a mediocre 365 project, really didn’t do much. Recently I’ve been getting back into it and I cannot let it go this time.
