Episode Number: 433

One of the great aspects of working in photography is the chance to work on projects. And in this case, by projects, I just mean a collection of similar themed work. Many of us start out taking images of things that capture our attention. They might seem random or grouped somehow, but they are often disjointed. Eventually, we might see a pattern or theme develop but still continue to click away sort of ad-hoc.

In the podcast this week, I talk about the value of thinking of your work as projects, big and small, and how focusing on a group of images or collection of images can help you better understand your technique, vision and voice within your work.

Defining your best work

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.
