What I may think is beautiful may not be what you think is beautiful. It is so true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am learning that not always is your client going to love what you do or agree with what you think is a great shot. I try not to take those moments personal because everyone’s view of my work will be different. There have been times where I have taken a shot, edited it and swore that the client was going to Love it (with a capital L) and they never purchase that pic. I would go back and forth in my mind as to why and how on earth can they overlook that shot, but at the end of the day the pic needs to speak to them even though it spoke to me from the moment I took it. I try my best to give them what they want, but I also need to stay true to my style, and what inspires me (that’s why they hired you). If you are a new photographer, and are feeling insecure because a shoot didn’t turn out the way you planned, or if you received the kind of feedback you weren’t expecting please don’t let that become a source of insecurity or frustration. Learn from that shoot and make adjustment on the next one. On every single session I learn something new, and I always try to make it better. This amazing photography journey I’m on is just that… a journey that never ceases to teach and inspire.
