Just published article on PDN: How a Critique Group Can Change Your Photogoraphy

Pursuing photography and other art forms can be very isolating, so it’s important for me to meet regularly with a group of women to critique each other’s work. I just published an article in Photo District News about the experience.

Opening paragraphs:

      I once spent hours on working on a collage, fine-tuning its colors, combining photographs, and assessing the image’s visual impact against the subtext of its meaning. Finally, it was perfect. I was ready to bring it to my class at a local photography museum for critique.

     I placed the eight-by-ten print on a folding table surrounded by my classmates and waited for them to commend my masterpiece. At first they were silent. Then a few suggested some tweaks. And then I saw it. The image did not need tweaking. It was perfect indeed. It was perfectly disastrous: perfect for a 1970s romance novel—not exactly the look I was going for.

          Fine-art photographer Tira Khan explains why her crit group works for its members, and offers tips for those looking to create their own group.
