    This lesson is probably the most challenging to critique because all that is required is that you get out that and shoot some images with a filter on.

    Given that you’ve done well to complete the assignment. As to whether or not your filter is functioning the way you wanted, it’s hard to say.

    I will give you a few notes on this image.

    Compositionally it feels a bit awkward and uncomfortable given that I want to see more and it looks like you”re shooting up at the sky.

    Also, I’m not a huge fan of watermarks. It’s best to just embed your metadata and copyright in the EXIF data of the images themselves. Some people will always steal photos and there is really nothing you can do about it on the internet. What you do want is people who will pay you to see your photos and want to use them.

    This happens to me all the time. They will find one of my images somewhere and then contact me through either the EXIF data on the image or through my website.

    Whatever the case, you should be flattered if people want to use your images for things. Some people will just flat out never pay for the use of the images. The people who will pay won’t like your watermarking.

    In any case, you’ve done well here to complete your assignment and to play around with filters.

    Over time you will need to develop your skill and knowledge with regard to filters. It just takes time and practice.

    I would highly recommend you continue to practice and play with your filters. Shoot with the filter on and off using the same settings so you can see how they work.

    See you on the next assignment.



    Thank you for the feedback it is most appreciated! I just have a few questions regarding some of your remarks, say I wanted to not place the watermark and do what you recommended EXIF data, how would I go about doing that?

    Also I for some reason am getting an error when trying to open lesson 5 never had this issue before updated all of my adobe readers and still not opening the downloaded lesson is there any way I can open or receive the lesson differently?

    Use Adobe Lightroom‘s metadata presets to fill in your EXIF metadata on import.

    That way your info is always embedded in the photograph itself. Handy if someone is stealing your photo too… 😉

    If you send an email to I will send the lesson to you via email. I’m not sure why this is happening. Can you tell me what the error message says?

    Thank you!


    I get an error code that states when I download the lesson and hit open it pops up that states not designed to run on windows or has errors.Try installing program again using original install or contact system administrator or software vendor

    I emailed the office hopefully it gets fixed so I can continue my lessons!

    You should have an email with the lesson in it.
