How do you know when you have created a great image? Is it when other people say it is amazing? Is it when you feel the need to show the world your work? Honestly I don’t have a clue! I have posted images on this site that people have loved and others have probably not even looked twice at. Sometimes I will love an image while everyone else will think I’m crazy for even thinking that it is even just okay.
I think if we all knew what created a great image it would be even easier to be a photographer. Personally I really love the exploration of photography, seeing what works and finding out what doesn’t. It is ever-changing, you have to keep your creativity up at all times. If you sit back and relax you are going to miss something. I think about it all the time and I miss stuff!
Maybe the key to creating a great image starts with your own personal vision and then figuring out how to display it to the world. That is a pretty vague statement, but it probably sums it up better than anything else.
So the bottom line is this, I don’t know what creates a great image exactly. I only know that I like what I do and I’m going to keep doing it. I suggest all of you do the same with everything in your life. Do what you love and love what you do. 😉
