What Makes a Good Photo?

We asked some of the exhibiting artists in FreshFaced + WildEyed 2013 to answer the question “what makes a good photo?” Here are some of their responses…

Feel free to let us know what you think makes a good photo in our comments form, or why not make your own video response and link it below?






More answers to this question can be found on our Vimeo page.


  1. What a question…. perhaps an image that makes you stop in your tracks and gaze for longer than a couple of seconds? It could be for a multitude of reasons beyond that… subject matter, composition, lighting, form, colour etc etc……And maybe even better, you remember it, go back to it, recognise it and want to see it again

  2. It seems to me that it has to be some talent of the photographer and some talent of the viewer that come together to create an image of the world that both the photographer and the viewer find more compelling than their own individual points of view.
