Each one of us tends to show only his best pictures and this is quite normal. However your best picture today might, and probably won’t, be your best picture of tomorrow.
I am amazed when I notice how much my taste and pictures have changed over time, I am not saying that I am good but I surely have improved. At least I am happy with my progress and this is very important.
For no specific reason I was looking at some older pictures and there are quite a few I was very proud of back then I wouldn’t even want to be associated with today.
I vividly remember how much I was discussed at my own work when looking at others’ pictures and all I wanted is quit photography. Today I still seek inspiration and still in owe in front of a lot of masterpieces I find out there however I feel much better about my own work.
This was mostly a rant dedicated to the new among you who are feeling today what I was feeling 4 or 5 years ago (this is when I started photography), a call to tell you do not stop shooting you will eventually find your style and feel better about your work and gain more confidence.
And, before I change my mind, here are 5 pictures I took back then, pictures I will surely not include in my portfolio today and won’t be ever showing you if I was writing these words today.
I guess I should make a part II of this post in 5 years 🙂 what do you think ?
