I'm also part of another forum called justlabradors.com and one time they had.... almost a class. The site isn't geared toward photography but rather Labrador dogs. But there were a couple of professionals on there that offered their services to help people capture pictures of their pets better. I think the way they structured it was very efficient and helpful: *There were about three professionals who were allowed to give critiques. *People were asked not to post critiques in between postings of the pictures. Even things like "I like this picture" *No post-picture production was allowed, this included cropping the picture. *You were asked to include as much detail as possible (i.e. camera, settings, and lighting) 1. A new thread was posted with the assignment of the week (i.e. swimming dogs, lazy dogs, or action dogs) 2. People would spend the week taking pictures and post only one picture by the deadline for the week. 3. The professionals would look at each picture and write comments on things like composition, exposure, and in some cases how the person could have changed their settings to get a better picture. The critiques looked something like this (all in one post by the professional) tam45rrr - the composition is good but you cut off the dogs tail. also why was your ISO so high in that sun light you could have gotten away with a lower ISO. junior56t - good use of the rule of thirds. the background was a little distracting. try using a smaller DOF by decreasing your aperture. This type of critique was very useful because we all had the same assignment and it was good to see all these pictures in one thread along with critiques by four professionals. it was very organized and I would like to participate in something like that again.
