VW22: Reflected Light Critique

All of us here at Visual Wilderness want to thank you for your submissions to our monthly assignments! We’ve really enjoyed seeing the incredible variety of images that members are sharing – and we’ve had some fun critiquing them on the Visual Wilderness show, too. Unfortunately, participation has been dropping, and we are no longer going to post new monthly assignments. Of course, you can still try your hand at the assignments – we won’t remove them from the site, and it’s a great way to try out new ideas and build your portfolio!

We encourage all of you to continue to submit images for peer review! And keep your eyes peeled for exciting developments in the Visual Wilderness community! We’re not quite ready to announce our latest plans, but big things are happening behind the scenes!

So, here it is – Visual Wilderness episode 22. The team takes a look at some of the images submitted for the Reflected Light assignment, and shares their thoughts. Along with Varina, Jay, Brent, and Johny, we welcome Mykal Hall and Clint Burkinshaw to the show. Both are excellent photographers, and contributors to Visual Wilderness. Thanks for joining us, guys!

About Author Varina Patel

There is nothing more remarkable to me than the power of nature. It is both cataclysmic and subtle. Slow and continuous erosion by water and wind can create landscapes every bit as astonishing as those shaped by catastrophic events – and minuscule details can be as breathtaking as grand vistas that stretch from one horizon to the other. Nature is incredibly diverse. Burning desert sands and mossy riverbanks… Brilliant sunbeams and fading alpenglow… Silent snowfall and raging summer storms… Each offers a unique opportunity. I am irresistibly drawn to the challenge of finding my next photograph, and mastering the skills required to capture it effectively.
