The NineDots awards take place every other month and are judged by incredible photographers from around the world. At NineDots we believe in awards as fuel for continual improvement rather than being purely for peer recognition or creating hierarchy, so every round our wonderful judges provide their expert insight into their judging process and offer feedback on the images entered through these regular ‘expert insight’ pieces. This helps everyone improve their craft – those who entered and those who didn’t, by getting advice from photographers at the top of the industry around the world.
In this video, the acclaimed wedding, documentary and street photographer; Dominique Shaw of York Place Studios gives her expert judges insight into the latest round of entries.
Packed with tips on capturing moments, improving your composition and making better photographs, this video is a must-watch. Aside from her incredible wedding and street work, Dom also photographed the first-ever NineDots Gathering with her brother (and studio partner Liam) – if you’ve not seen what they came up with – check this out!
