Life is full of lessons, and the mail I received gave me two.
First, nothing comes if you don't take action. I have been reluctant to send images to Fearless Photographers or other Photo Contest over the last 3 years. I was thinking to have clients "knocking to my door" each week was enough to have a business running. But there is a big mistake with that. We always need competition, and we always need to know if we are exceeding our clients' expectations.
Yes, having a great review and clients for life is great, but also know, once in a while, we are in line with international standards is good. This mail taught me I still have work to do, I still need to work harder, and I can make my work better than it is now.
Second, it helped me notice I've been consistently awarded in one type of image: Black & White, close-ups, and two-light setups. It makes me validate - on the photographer's arena - the type of image I like to create. But what about you? which kinds of images do you like to see?
