Episode 357

In this episode of the Perceptive Photographer podcast, we dive into a new way of approaching the deletion of our images. I was asked by a friend how I approach deleting my images. We chatted about deleting the bad ones, duplicates, etc. In the course of that conversation, it occurred to me that these things that I was deleting or gear that I was selling all had value at one point. Maybe I learned something about technique from the bad photograph. Maybe I learned how to see better behind the camera. It was at that moment that I realized that we should take a moment and honor the things we get rid of or delete for what they taught up no matter how small. That maybe by changing our language from bad means delete to honored and then deleted might change how we approach our mental health in our creative work.
