I don’t tend to have many opinions on what other people do online. To be honest, I mostly don’t care but there are a few things which tend to cause my blood pressure to rise. These tend to involve Facebook which, if I had any sense or willpower, I really should just avoid.
Today’s irritation is photo sharing. Don’t get me wrong, I love photos and I think anyone with a camera can take interesting, well-framed shots, but you know what, if you are uploading 200 photos onto Facebook, noone will be able to see the good from the bad because you have just stuck up everything, even the photos which are repeat shots in case the other copies turned out badly.
Furthermore, if you want to improve your photography, the ability to edit your own photos and understand why they didn’t work out is fundamental to the learning process. Maybe I am exceptionally self-critical but I would rather post 20 good, interesting or sentimental photos than 50 photos of varying quality amongst which the good ones just get lost.
Edit, edit, edit…
