Photo Critique: Cosmetics
Perfumes and lipsticks made up the majority of the cosmetics, but we also saw some skincare and makeup products. Check out the members’ image gallery below.
Watch the live-show replay to see Karl review the shots, identifying the strengths of each one while he also identifies potential improvements.
As he offers his critiques, Karl covers the importance of using diffused light for glossy surfaces, keeping your concept coherent, and removing sticky labels from bottles and boxes.
He also offers tips on composition, contrast, how to keep the viewer ‘in’ the image, and how to separate the ‘hero’ of a shot from its supporting cast.
A fantastic learning opportunity even if your own work isn’t featured, this critique show offers plenty of valuable product photography tips. You'll find inspiration in your fellow members' creativity and develop a deeper understanding of what makes a successful photo.

I believe your critiques were fair. A lot of nice photos. Well done Karl and all the photographers.
Thanks Karl.. picked up some good points from everyone’s images. Life got busy and I missed the live show but appreciate that you guys post these up so quickly. I thought the critiques were fair all around and your points were pretty bang on toward possible improvements.
Thanks Gary and well done.
