There is so much to think about and keep track of in photography, even more so if it is your career. As such, it can be easy to get caught up thinking about the wrong thing or focusing too much on something at the expense of another. It is important to remember what really matters at the end of the day, and this worthwhile video discusses that.
Coming to you from Mads Peter Iversen, this great video discusses the importance of longevity in photography, namely your own connection with your work. I think Iversen is touching on something really important when he discusses the importance of being able to be proud of and appreciate your own work. One of the quickest things I learned as a musician was that the audience can always tell when you are not being true to yourself in your own work, and it is unlikely they will connect with it if that is the case. And if you are not being true to yourself, you are unlikely to appreciate your own work in the long run, nor will you be able to easily develop a recognizable personal style. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Iversen.
