It’s part of life.
You’ll disappoint yourself, you’ll disappoint others and others will disappoint you.
This applies to your photography, too.
From where I see things you have three choices.
- Continue to live with disappointment.
- We can try to please everyone, including yourself, and attempt to exceed their expectations, but it ain’t gonna’ work. As Viggo Mortensen said, “If you’re trying to please everyone, then you’re not going to make anything that is honestly yours, I don’t think, in the long run.”
- The other way is not to try to do anything to be disappointed about.
Choice #1 is the clear choice.
If you’re trying to be a better photographer, the path is full of disappointment. The upside is that you can learn from your disappointment.
