with Elisabeth N Aanes

Welcome to The Image CRIT FALL 2023

This class is an 'exercise class' for your creativity. Each meeting will give an opportunity to present images, to receive constructive critic, discuss photography, and to receive a new challenge.


Our instructor is NORDphotography's founder, Elisabeth N Aanes, who each meeting will lead the image critic, and give a short lecture to set up our next creative challenge. Some challenges will be right up your allay, and some will be more tricky, but for each attempt to creatively solve the challenge given, your photography skills will be stretched, nurtured, and grow. 


Our meetings are on Sundays, every 3 weeks, with 6 classes pr semester.

Time: 18:00-19:30 CET/ 12PM-13:30PM EST



The Image Crit is an online informal activity, where we will challenge your creativity, and offer you feedback on your work.


Every meeting you will get a different creative challenge presented, where you can submit 2-5 images for critic in our next meeting. Everyone in class will be asked to give feedback on everyones images, in addition to instructor Elisabeth N Aanes. This often leads to interesting discussions, and input, that might give you new ways of looking at your work. 


We also invite our participants to be part of The Image Crit group on Facebook. A hidden group where everyone invited has been, or is, part of The Image Crit. Participants can use this group to connect with fellow creatives and share work to get feedback on from your fellow participant, in between classes.  


To set up the challenge Elisabeth will, in the end of each Image Crit meeting, give a short lecture. That means she will present, in class, the premise of the challenge, and also show inspirational work related to the challenge. The challenge for your first class will be sent you by e-mail.


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.
