Hello Folks, Remember critiques from photo school? I teach a job preparatory class in Commercial Photography at a publicly run tech school. Recently, I have experienced students that do not respond appropriately to print critique. I know that critique, if given improperly, can be a bitting experience. What I am talking about is students who only want to hear what they did right. I am not talking about kids, I am talking about adults. My question for discussion is whether today, critique is a relevant exercise in an educational environment? Should I shelve future plans for print critiques? Specifically, my question is motivated by an image of a squirrel, posed on the side of a tree. It was not a bad image but possessed no qualities that distinguished it from an image that could have been captured by an amateur. Let me know what you think.
