P,CT: Can one become skilled in evaluating/critiquing an image
I am a tyro and really enjoy making pictures. But it is time to move on from where I am and not get into a rut.
That is the reason I am asking this question is that if I know how to critique an image, I could then (I hope) be able to critique my own, and then come up with reasons why I did the things that I did. I am familiar with the the 1/3 rule and the a:b=b:c concept. Do picture makers use these concepts because they are already part of the language of image-making? And what about colour (in the BIG sense) and texture? Hardly any mention seem to be made of these factors.
And what about this question, how do I know that I am seeing in psychological sense the same picture that the photographer does? (Does it matter?)
Right now I operate intuitively and that to me is hit or miss (big time).
So in this case the exhortation could be," Physcian, Know Thyself".
