The reason does matter

Episode Number: 469

This week is episode 470 of the Perceptive Photographer podcast I dive into the importance of the personal part of personal work and projects. So many times I hear from people who are trying to find a deeper connection to their work that they struggle with what it will mean to everyone who looks at it. The focus of the work is very external. I propose that for work to matter it needs to have a personal connection to the person making the work first. I also believe that if it matters to you then that is enough. The work matters because we feel and believe it matters to us. This isn’t a matter of ego, but rather a deep heart-felt to what we photograph and how we experience those moments.

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.
