The Importance of Evaluation.
At least once a year you should take a day or more and evaluate your work. It gives you a great opportunity to do an honest assessment of where you are in your photographic endeavors. If you see some bad habits, identify them and stop repeating them. The things you see that you are pleased with, repeat as often as possible. Try to find things you would like to try that you normally don’t do, like long exposures, wildlife, macro, etc. At our workshops we take time after the first field session to sit and evaluate your work. We want to identify any camera issues as well as ensure that you understand our teachings. We have averted many equipment crisis by doing this. Go photograph with others as well. Tell them what you are doing and why. Have them do the same. It is amazing how much you will learn about yourself and your work. At our workshops we have goals for our participants. We want you to get some wall hangers, we want you to understand how you created the image, we want you to feel comfortable going out and doing it again on your own, and we want you to have a good time. I hope you will join us sometime on one of our workshops.
Have a great photographic year!
