There are times that everyone faces in their photography when you feel like things are going nowhere. Maybe you are spending more money than you wanted or time than you have on things you don’t need or want to do. The longer we spend on photography, the less time and energy we have to do photography.

I imagine that each one of us has that thing that got us into photography that we really loved doing. Taking pictures of family, spending time with other photographers or experimenting with an idea. Over time those basic joys are overtaken by the “need to be good” at photography. This week we take a look at how the work can get in the way of the work.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.

Defining your best work

In this week’s podcast, we explore the elusive quest to identify the “best photograph” in a series, delving into considerations like emotional impact, composition, and our own personal bias.
