Panda Hangover Pt II

Panda Hangover Pt II

I dipped back into the archives for today’s photo and found a slightly different angle from this Thanksgiving Day photo. I sometimes find it helpful to my creative process to revisit things from the past to see how I took the photo: the lighting, the composition, the effects used (if any), etc, etc. This one is no different.

Sometimes you need to revisit the past in order to move forward into the future, and I try to allow that in my creative process, whether it’s with photography, music, or writing. It’s too easy to get into a rut when you’re doing the same things over and over again, but by stepping back and purposefully studying your previous work, you can take things away that you may not have noticed were there when you created them. Your perspectives may have changed; your processes may have changed; even your tastes may have changed from when you initially created that work that you’re now studying. It’s important to revisit it to see how you’ve grown and how you may continue to grow. It’s important as you try and shape the direction in which you’re trying to move. It’s also important to sometimes just step back, take a deep breath, and look at how far you’ve come.
