Have you ever taken the time to look back your older photographs and think about how you’ve improved? What was most helpful to you in your growth as a photographer? Was it equipment? Opportunity? Education? Did your photography skills evolve slowly over time? Or did something cause a giant progressive leap all at once?
I recently did an interview with Aha Daily. They asked for a series of images from 2002 to 2013 – and going through my old photographs was an interesting journey! I found that the equipment I used really didn’t matter much. Instead, I went through phases where I learned about different aspects of photography. My technical skills improved, and the my compositions. I went through periods where I tried to be more creative, and others where I tried to capture as many iconic locations as I could… my “trophy hunting” phase. :)
When you look back at your own work – even those photos you took just a few months or years ago – can you see the progression? Please share some of your insight!
