MICHAEL ZHANG, PETAPIXEL:
"If you share your photography in any public manner, you’re bound to run into critics who point out things you should improve in. While some of the critiques aren’t worth listening to and should be tuned out as noise, others may be from more experienced people who have genuinely valuable feedback that could help you grow.
"Photographer Don Giannatti wrote about this subject a few months ago, but here’s another take: above is a 3.5-minute video with tips on how to take criticism without getting defensive. It’s about criticism in general and is by the website The Art of Manliness, but the advice can be applied by photographers of either gender."
