Remember that “Constructive” Photo Critique You Made? This is How You Sound
When reading comment sections on photography blogs or on photography groups, I often get the feeling people always think they are better than everyone else. People go on rants with heinously bad comments about photos they don’t like and degrade anyone who is creating art that they might not even understand. Many times photographers feel like they give constructive criticism when the opposite is often more true.
When I watched this video it reminded me pretty much any comment section on the internet. Rants like this are something that have become very common on the internet (always easier to say nasty stuff behind the keyboard and not face to face), but when you see it like this in real life, you understand how absurd it can sound. Watch this video and any time you’re about to write a comment about a photo, about a photographer or about a project. Remember: you don’t want to be that person.
Be nice to others, even if it’s from behind the keyboard.
