I regularly go thru some of the photos that I have taken over the years. I rate them in Lightroom and then they are placed automatically in a best of folder depending on the year. I have the photos organized this way for the past 9 years.
It is helpful to see where I have been and where I am going on the same screen. Hopefully I will see that I have improved or at least changed. Staying stagnant would be the worst thing I could imagine. I have been going over some of the photos recently because I have to get photos together that show my work for workshops I am taking. A couple of thoughts:
I don't think I have a set subject that I gravitate towards and I am not sure that is a bad thing. I would like to be able to detect a style but it is hard for me to do. I also would like to have a set project in mind when I photograph but I don't always. I am going to share some of these photos from time to time mostly as a reminder to me of what I have done.
This is an example of a photo that is not very good but that I think that captures a gesture. He was done in a dark and damp subway station in NYC.
This photo was taken on the beach on the outer banks of North Carolina in 2010. I found this antique digital frame online and I knew immediately where it would go.
