Home Forums Am I a Fauxtog? So, am I doing Ok for a beginner? Reply To: So, am I doing Ok for a beginner?


I make photos for myself first and formost, everyone else is not relevant.  That is the one big thing I learnt from this site, don’t listen to others, listen to your own gut when it comes to your own expression.  I’m not trying to be negative to your comment, just being real to myself, it’s not your photographic style, it’s mine.

Actually, I think this is spot on. This is the first thread I ever commented on or even read on this site. I think my only recommendation was something along the lines of your quote. I shoot for me and only me. If anyone else likes it then great. I do take and listen to critique as it helps me improve but I only incorporate critiques that improve what I do in my own opinion. I think about or even try everything that is suggested though just to see if it works for me.

Anyway, congrats and well done.
