How Do You Know if a Photo is Good or Not?

For me a “good” photograph is a photograph I find personally interesting, curious and worth lingering over.

1. The sketch, draw, or trace test.

If a photograph is interesting enough for you to sketch or trace, it’s probably a good or interesting/unique photograph.

2. The joy of analyzing your photos after the fact

3. Photos of people that make your heart quicken

4. Composition

People in motion. Engaging shapes and movement:

5. Photos of yourself

I like looking at photo selfies of myself, especially with unique and interesting backgrounds:

6. Colors, shapes, textures and forms

Bold colors, curves, circles, jagged edges, interesting textures (food), and natural details and macro photos!
