The Way To Be A “Good” Photographer Is By Not Being A “Good” Photographer

We can get stuck in thoughts of whether our photographs are good or if we are good photographers.

Ideas of good vary as judgements in terms of “I like ” or ” I don’t like”. If ya want your work, or you as a photographer, judged in terms of “good”, no one is more qualified to judge your work than you.

Here’s a suggestion. Stop making pictures with the intent of being a good photographer that produces good photographs.

Instead, study and practice with the intent of being an effective photographer that produces effective photographs.

Effective is a more useful intent than “good”.

What we do with our cameras leads to an effect in terms of our compositions.

Questioning whether we produced the intended effect is much more useful than asking is our photograph “good or if we are “good” photographers.
