A brand new year brings a brand new Take 52 Weekly Photography Challenge and I’m proud to say that this year its bigger and more lively than ever! We had a record number of submissions and I am promising to try my best at being consistent with one video critique per week.
This week’s image was submitted by Chris Reynolds for Week 1 Theme “Beginning”

It’s week 36 on the Take 52 Challenge and this week’s theme was “Crushed.” I choose this image by Cindy Csomo for critique as I was enthralled by her use of bright colors and when she shared on the Facebook group of the lengths she went to to reshoot the image I was super impressed!
No flash, Outside light

This week’s theme was a nice easy one! Angles are everywhere – as soon as you start to look for them.

I chose the above picture to critique by Julio Rivera as I felt he did a great job capturing angles and used editing to his advantage to do so by changing his image to black and white.

’til next time
The #Take52 Weekly Photo Challenge has REALLY taken off this year and I am happy to report so many people are fully participating, uploading and sharing on the Facebook Group and commenting and critiquing other people’s images.
It’s been really difficult for me to keep up with the stream and comment on everyone’s so rather than discriminate, I’ve decided to take one image per week and do a little video critique here on the blog. I’m doing these videos for my students enrolled in my online classes, anyways so one more doesn’t make much difference!
So we are beginning at Week 4: Creamy
The image below was submitted by Katie Hunter – Thanks Katie!
