Tip #45: Be Open to Critique
Photography, like many forms of art, is very subjective. Our best friends may love our work yet the professionals may bash it, or vice versa. So be open to critiques and take all that people have to say - whether it is positive or negative - and think about those suggestions, reviews and ideas each time you snap the shutter.
You would be amazed at how often that little comment about a distracting blob in the lower portion of your photo starts to pop into your head when you are photographing an animal in a busy landscape. Or that comment about how the eyes looked off of the image rather than into it.
There are a thousand comments that could be said about a photo. Sometimes the comments can be harsh and sometimes the comments can be very inspiring. Take each one and store it away in a brain cell. It will pop into your conscious mind on occasion and make your photo just a little bit better.
