- What makes one photo better than another shot just maybe a fraction of a second before? When you're faced with dozens or even hundreds of similar shots, how do you go about choosing your best work? Hi, my name is Steve Simon and I'm here to give you my strategies and criteria for choosing your best photographs. This course is not about post processing, image alteration or enhancement. There's lots of great resources throughout the library to help you with the necessary technical steps in your photographic process.
This course is about choosing your best work. Culling down from a large number of images and making the right decisions. I'll talk about what makes images strong or weak, my criteria for choosing one over another, and how best to strengthen a photograph for maximum impact and communication power, through cropping or post processing. You know, you can't be a great photographer until you edit well, squeezing the very best out of every shoot. Which is why choosing the right shot is so important.
In my experience, it can take as long, or even longer, to get through your edit than it did during the actual shoot itself. But it's time well spent.
