My earlier work I may now consider “fauxtog” (well, I don’t think I was terrible, or did wonky editing, or posted all kinds of out of focus images) but I definitely had things to learn (and yeah still do). My first wedding I charged a huge discount. I worked with the bride and she specifically asked me to shoot her wedding. I told her that I never shot a wedding and wasn’t sure how well I could do, but she had confidence in me and she was on a tight budget. She was very happy with the photos but looking back now I can pick myself apart. I know I got a few good ones I still regard as good, just not great. I’ve kept some of my earlier work on my page and I think it shows my progress. I even posted an album called “Before I became a real photographer” with images I once considered “portraits” that actually really sucked.
