So much of how we talk about photographs is fact-based. We talk about the accuracy of an image, the correctness of a composition, or the ideal settings to use. The risk of talking about photographs as facts is that it can cause us to fall into bad habits and traps. It can also lead us to miss out on the most important part of a creative journey which is sharing our experiences, emotions, feelings, and ideas in our work.

In the podcast this week, the focus is all on how focusing on facts of your photography might be limiting your approach to your photography.
