Contructive Dissatisfaction With One's Own Work
For the last few days, Iíve been reflecting on my photographic work done over the last two years. Now Iím going through a period of what I call constructive discontent. That is, there are some things Iím pleased with and there are numerous things Iím not pleased with.
Sometimes Iím not pleased with the overall texture or tonality of a photo. There are things, like soft subtle details and highlights, which I wished I had done differently. I think some are too harsh. I Ďm not satisfied with the overall look of some. Some of this unpleasantness is obvious to the viewer, some is not. Itís just my own dissatisfaction.
Not looking for any sympathy or condolences. I take these periods as a learning experience and strive to work through them for the better. Anyone have any other thoughts to share on this?
