Live Members Picture Critique – Portrait Photography

With Karl Taylor

19th September 2019 – 18:00 BST / 13:00 EDT

Watch Replay

For this members’ picture critique — a highly popular feature of Karl Taylor Education — Karl will be reviewing portrait images submitted by members.

Having recently presented two creative portrait lighting technique live shows (which you can watch here and here), we’re looking forward to seeing your submissions. Karl will offer his perspective and critique on each image, highlighting the positives and offering suggestions on how to improve on the negatives.

This will be a valuable show for anyone interested in portrait photography and, as always, Karl will be taking your questions throughout the show.
