One of the more interesting questions I get asked about during a critique typically deals with intention. Can you understand the intention of the photographer? Can you understand why they took a photograph? In many cases, I am not sure you can. I am often left wondering what the photographer is saying in those instances. I do believe that when we are creating our work, our real work, we are putting what matters to us into the work. In this podcast, I discuss the importance of making sure your conflicts, passions, and things you stand for appear in your work. Not everything has to make a statement or incite conflict, but you should know what to say about it when it does.
