    Last picture

    I have heard it said about salesmen that they are only as good as their last sale. Is this true for photographers about their last picture?

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    You're as good as your best shot, and as bad as your worst, so edit, edit, edit.

    This is also a trap painters fall into, which is why you sometimes see them paint the same painting over and over for the rest of their lives.

    For commercial work and marketing purposes, maybe.

    But for other photography, probably not.

    "The Last Picture" would be a good movie title...


    Yes, that applies for any commercial photographer. With an artist photographer the whole oeuvre is likely to be evaluated.
