Shoot for better results

Shoot for better results.

This time of year I spend a lot of time photographing birds. They are nesting, migrating and just more plentiful. Other times of the year, I may concentrate more on landscapes and macro. Every day when I go out I don’t try and compare my work to other’s, I compare it to what I did the day before. This is something that anyone and everyone photographing should take into consideration. Try to improve your personal work each day, don’t worry about how some one else is shooting. Yes, working to be one of the greats is a long term goal, but short term should be just shoot for better results. Learn from not only mistakes the previous day, but what you did right as well. Repeat the positives more often.
