THE IMAGE CRIT - edition 2
with Elisabeth N Aanes

Welcome to The Image CRIT - edition 2.


We started this activity as our first online activity, and as our CRIT groups grew and developed, so did this program.


For our edition 2 we are changing it up. We have added in lectures in each meeting, to share more knowledge to the classes. 


We offer 2 different CRIT groups.

THE IMAGE CRIT - edition 2 


We offer 2 different groups:

  • CRIT 1 - Creative Challenge

  • CRIT 2 - Projects


Both classes are image CRIT driven, but in this edition we have added in short lectures each time for each group. 



For this group you will get a new creative challenge each time. To set up the challenge we will, in the end of each critic session, give a lecture (the challenge for your first class will be sent you by e-mail). That means that we will present, in class, the premise of the challenge, and also show inspirational work related to the challenge.


You will be shown work from many different photographers as inspiration, to give you a great send off into your creative process, but also make you aware of different work that fellow creatives are doing. We think this will present a greater learning experience for our CRIT participants, which in term will give us great photography. 


For our edition 2 group each participants will present work form their ongoujng project. In addition we will each time give a lecture on a chosen topic. 

It can be:

- different ways to work on a project

- how to select the right images

- presenting a project in a professional matter

- what text (like Artist Statement, Project Statement etc) you need to include in a projects, and how to write them.

- how, and where to present your work online

Participants are encouraged to submit requests for topics.


The meetings are moderated and taught by NORDphotography's founder Elisabeth N Aanes. 


The Image Crit is a great forum to test out your work and get a wide selections of opinions, pluss discuss ideas and give feedback to fellow creatives. You will also be invited into our Images Crit group on Facebook, where participants can share more images, and keep the discussion going, outside the Crit meetings.  

The submissions for CRIT 1 will be presented in our gallery on our website, the day before we meet, so you can have a look at everyones image before the session starts. For our CRIT 2 we will be using Dropbox, and not share the work until the project is ready. 


We may share some of the best images from the Image Crit on our social media to celebrate the artists work. 

Both CRIT groups will be invited to our online X-MAS PARTY on December 18TH, where we will highlight the best work submitted all year from our CRIT participants. This presentation will also be presented on our website, and social media to celebrate the talents we have had the pleasure of working with over the year.
