Blind Critique Webinar with David Clapp, 7th November, 8pm



We're starting a new On Landscape feature where we'll be inviting photographers along to provide feedback on submitted photographs.

Getting feedback on your photography is critical to your progression as a photographer. For most photographers this typically happens when they meet up with some friends on when they post images on Flickr but from watching participants in photography workshops it's obvious that getting feedback from respected photographers is something most people find invaluable.

To help our On Landscape subscribers get their photographs in front of some of our contributors we're starting to hold a regular blind critique session. This one hour long webinar will give insights into composition, technique and post processing and our first guest critic is one of our favourite contributors, David Clapp.

Our host Tim Parkin will be showing David Clapp approximately 15 photographs without knowing who has submitted them. Submissions for images are now closed, but please join us for what will be an informative and interesting discussion.

You can register for the webinar which is on 7th November 8pm at:

    I got pulled into a meeting just as the webinar was starting. Hoping the video will be posted!

  • Christian Stromberg

    Similar situation here, got a call from work about half an hour before, had to fix some things, returned too late. A recording would be much appreciated.


  • Carlo Didier

    Really interesting session. Many good suggestions.
    The only thing I didn’t like was the jumping around in the image list. I would have preferred to have them treated in the order. This looked a bit like cherry picking instead of a neutral critique where every image is treated equally on a first come, first served principle, as suggested in your call for entries. Note that mine wouldn’t have been in the first 15, so this is not a rant because mine wasn’t picked.

    Hi Tim, sounds like it went well and I really look forward to seeing the video of it.

    I think the suggestion above of going through in order, and in fact announcing which images will be critiqued (or even publishing them a day before for each to peruse and critique themselves) is a good idea.

    I will even wake up to join in at 4am WST that way :-)


    • Kevin Fidler

      The suggestion of publishing beforehand is a good one, I think and in fact I e-mailed the self same thing this morning. One problem I encountered last night was trying to keep up with the commentary whilst at the same time trying to weigh up the photo myself. Perhaps less photos, more depth of discussion? Yes it means more people would be disappointed not to be chosen but perhaps Tim/Charlotte would be able to administer it so once you’re picked you’re off the list or something like that.
      This sounds as though I’m moaning and I’m not, I enjoyed the critique and learned from it and it’s good to have a profession opinion.

  • Ian Thompson

    Despite my better intent and even worse because one of my images was being critiqued, I was not able to view the webinar live – so frustrating! Can someone confirm that a/the video of the proceedings will be available to view?

    • Hi Ian,

      We’ve recorded the session and it will be uploaded to the latest issue as soon as it’s ready!


      • Ian Thompson

        I just knew that you’d have it covered…

  • dsecrieru

    Was it uploaded? Did I miss it?
