Five Steps to More Meaningful Photography
John and I recently posted a YouTube video in which we talked about the sales pitches we see in photography:
“Follow this one rule for better photographs.”
“The three key steps to becoming a better photographer.”
“Ten things to improve your photography.”
“Do this ONE thing!”
Each hyperbolic statement is designed to get you to read the article and perhaps sell you something.
Then John asked if I had any such formulas (of course assuming that I did not). But “boy howdy” was he surprised when I told him that I did!
I have “Five Steps to More Meaningful Photography” and I GUARANTEE that they work! Here they are:
- Question your motives.
- Find your Vision.
- Find your Passion.
- Critically analyze your own work.
- Be true to yourself.
More meaningful photography has nothing to do with your equipment, how sharp your images are or what rules you follow.
More meaningful photography takes a lot of hard work, self-analysis and complete honesty.
But it’s worth it.
