Best photo
Photo 1 – This image is stands out because you have used your surroundings to capture a unique perspective and you’ve also revealed a glimpse into the subject’s personality, without actually staging the image. Your other photographs show a slight lack of confidence when photographing people in public – you tend to work from a distance, or hide behind objects and shadows. This image is  good example of a confident approach, shooting people in relation to their own environment, which you should explore further.

We suggest that you:

Avoid copying other photographers’ styles. Experiment more, try to develop a style which is unique to you, Gain confidence by setting yourself mini assignments which take you outside of your comfort zone. For example: photograph a stranger in the street, capturing a glimpse of their personality / photograph from unusual angles/perspecitves / etc….
