Yay! Group critique for #DEDPXL04 is now up!

We are in a busy, busy, busy season right now. I apologize for the delay. DEDPXL05 will be posted next week and will not have a video this time around due to our tight schedule with everything else going on.

Some great work coming out of these assignments right now y’all. Well done. Still some crap but hey… we all still shoot some crap. 🙂

    Thank you Zack and Meg for organizing these assignments. They provide me with some much needed focus and a respite from the day to day. My youngest is looking forward to shooting the next assignment. I’m looking forward to seeing what he creates.

    Another amazing critique, thanks Zack and Meg (again).

    I *knew* it didn’t look low enough! I got sand on my face shooting it, but damn sure can’t tell from the image. Perception is everything.

    That said, I think I’m gonna take up golf.

    Thanks for critiquing my photo! I wasn’t really thinking “Nike ad” when I took it, but maybe I should’ve?

  6. Jim Shaw

    Thanks guys , I just watched and learned. J

  7. Jim Seith

    Wonderful critiques, but A+ for the interplay and husband/wife “conversation.”
    I learned and had a hell of a lot of fun.

  8. Erin Wilson

    I know your time is valuable…thanks again for investing in the community.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to Pay It Forward by providing these extended critiques. Way beyond the call of duty for a free site (even granted that you are hawking your wares alongside it), but a totally invaluable educational resource.

    A useless, sycophantic comment perhaps, but if it goes some way towards inspiring you to keep providing amazing stuff gratis then what the hell.

    Zack, I could not be more proud. At this stage in my life, I generally don’t give a rat’s ass what anyone else thinks about my work, but I value your opinion very highly. The inspiration and motivation you provide here from your heart is priceless – really. Thank you – not just for the critique, but for the soul and candid honesty you pour out for us all. You ARE appreciated – and so are you Meg!

      Thank you for the kind words Hal. Really. Thank you. Glad to be of service.
