Today’s post has a poll so you can vote on the short list I should have taken to class in Los Angeles. Below are all 21 images from my long-list of favourites taken while on a course with Sam Abell. For the last part of the course we had to choose four settings where we had made a concentrated effort at photography. For each setting we chose two images to present to class for discussion and critique. Those two images had to be the first shot we took and the best of all the others we made at that setting.
I have shown only the best of each pair from my long-list. Based on those images (see gallery below) which four would you have chosen for presentation and critique? Fill in the poll below – you have up to four choices so choose four if you are able.
If there is something I have shown but not included here which you think should be in your top four, mention it in the comments section below if you like. Some of the ones I have shown don’t have any other versions – they were composed and shot, and some not composed with care even if they came out OK. I could not include those in my choice for class, so they never made the long-list. In a future post, or the comments of this one, I will let you know what my choices were – I found it very difficult to boil it down to four, and since the course have come to different choices. More than once 🙂
The images are all in the gallery beneath the poll, the titles for the images are the same in the gallery and poll questions. The gallery order and poll answer order are both randomized, which might be less convenient than if I had made them the same order, but I’m guessing it to be a better method. Sorry for any inconvenience.
I’ve not done a poll before, but thought it time to experiment on this blog, and a better opportunity than this is unlikely to come along soon. Never fear, polls will be extremely rare in this part of the internet so you can let go of that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach!
