In this Thanksgiving episode of SLR Lounge Constructive Video Critique, we go over among other things, the importance of having a good subject matter over processing techniques. Good use of compositional technique, lighting, and subject choice can help make a photograph look interesting before adding any post-processing technique such as HDR.

At the same time, a good use of post-processing approach can work to make a photo more interesting if used properly as in the case of the first photo, Mirror Metro. We also take a look at shallow depth of field for family and pet portraits, as well as compositional symmetry in food photography.

Enjoy the video!
