How to give an honest self-appraisal of your photos:
How and why do we judge our photos?
First of all, it is important to judge your photos because you got to figure out which photos to keep and which photos to ditch. Arsbeta.com as my attempt to create a platform for honest feedback.
Second, figure out which photos you care for. The word curate literally means to care. So just ask yourself the question: do you care for the photos or not?
Third, think about joy. To me, the only photos worth keeping are the photos which bring you joy, and perhaps photos that could bring others joy.
Fourth, know that your best photos are ahead of you not behind you. This is the best way to stay motivated in your photography.
