Quote: “I am constantly torn between the attitude of the conscientious journalist who is a recorder and interpreter of the facts and of the creative artist who often is necessarily at poetic odds with the literal facts.”

Thought for the day: A Painful But VERY Useful Exercise

Take a bunch of your finished images. Maybe a handful to a dozen dozens*. Downselect them to the best 10%. Further downselect to the best image. I use to find this exercise difficult and painful. Still hard for me to do but the selection/evaluation can lead to better new photos and improvements in what you show people.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
