All the World’s a Stage: Week 8: “How to Edit Your Work”

Experiment:

  • Go out for an entire day and go shooting. When you go back home, select your best 3 shots. Then go back to your portfolio and select the best 3 shots you have ever taken.

These are the best 3 from today.  I’m normally pretty severe on editing and can quite quickly determine what images I want to keep from an individual shoot.  These images were all taken around the vicinity of the Riverside Museum by the banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow.  There was good light and the subjects presented themselves consistently throughout the day.  There were a couple of locations that I found that would have been incredible if the right person had walked into them but it wasn’t to be today.

Going through the entire portfolio is another matter!  I have only been shooting for 2 years but already I have nearly 15,000 images in my library.  With regards to Street Photography, I have only been doing this since September last year so to pick from this portfolio is slightly easier, although I tend to think that at the moment, that the more recent shots are the best.  The test of this will be to keep going back and assess them.  I’m sure that old photos will have different qualities when they are left to marinate.
