I may put just one more of the orchids up after this, I’ll see how I feel.
In general I can filter which photos are better but once I’ve made that filter it is quite difficult to distinguish between pictures. Preference becomes a factor of the texture of a moment rather than an objective (or even obviously subjective) assessment.
Choosing this particular photo then is a product of my mood at this moment, tomorrow I’ll probably look at it and wonder why I chose this versus another. Ho hum, such is life -these are nice problems to have.
Ultimately we need to choose our photos for our audience and for the purpose they are intended. This blog is primarily for my development so I choose what I feel like. I struggle with clients sometimes, as my calibration on what parents want to see is far away from what I think are the best pictures. So I adapt and I get 3rd parties who understand to help me filter.
It is iterative but the point is to remember that your work is not done when you’ve finished producing the shots, how you present them and ones you choose present are so so important as well. These I am all slowly learning, everything is slow learning
