Top Definition
(noun) In a photography critique, one participant comes to the aid of a classmate/friend whom is faced with criticism on the composition of one or more of their images. The aide offers a bit of commentary which seems to suggest a deep meaning in the body of work, in order to distract the other participants.
Student 1: The composition in this image is terrible. You cut the person's head off, and the image is underexposed.
Student 2: I have to disagree with you. It is obvious that the photographer was making a conscious effort. The lack of the person's head speaks to their character, as they are afraid to reveal the truth. This person is keeping a secret, and may also be acting as a reflection of the photographer, whom is trying to show how they themselves are lost and cannot stand up confident. The underexposure compliments this virtue, and also adds to the idea that we are all underexposed, and that in order to fully show ourselves, we have to be subjected to public opinion and in some cases, distaste.
Student 3 (quietly to Student 2) : Wow you really saved my ass with that fine art assist!
