Photo Critique - Episode 121

I'm no longer accepting images for critique. If you're wondering why, you can find out here:

In this, Episode 121 of Photo Critiques, I critique the photography of Hans-Erik Arp

In this critique, I talk how when we blur the background behind the subject, it will help the subject stand out and pop out of the picture. In that discussion, I talk about how close the background is to the subject can dictate what f-stop you should utilize to effectively allow the subject to stand out yet still allow some detail in the background so it isn't in total blur. Photographers like to do this when we're photographing a strong subject in it's environment and we want to give the viewer an idea of what the environment looks like yet we don't want the subject to blend into the background.

Not only are there more critiques on my website, but there are loads of photography how-to articles and videos. Best of all, it's all free.
