“Critical Distance” is the first commandment of acoustics. It is defined as the location from the sound source where sound and reverberant sound are equal.
In photography, I see critical distance as a similar process of balance. After making a photograph, I step back from my emotional connection to the image to a point where I can evaluate it based on the strength of whether it communicates what I felt.
"Critical Distance" will address a wide range of photography related topics that I find both interesting and worth sharing with friends and colleagues. Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas, as my goal is to stimulate a dialog that will help all of us become better photographers.
