Ignore All Other Photographers

A true saying by Hugh M: “Ignore everyone else”, in order to thrive as a creator.

Some caveats:

First of all, it is good to find inspiration and motivation from other photographers, artists, and creators. However, if you truly want to innovate in your photography, do new things, make more novel photos, and be more productive; I recommend ignoring all other photographers.

Why? The danger that we face as photographers is to compare ourselves with other photographers, rather than judging our own photos according to our own personal merit. The only person we should compare ourselves to is our yesterday self.

Shoot for yourself, and stay true to your own photographic vision!
