Don’t compare?

Hey guys,

I’ve been realizing more of my deeper flaws recently: I care too much about what others think. As a result, I oftentimes find myself comparing my skills and photos to those of others and start to be internally defensive/critical rather than being appreciative/inspired by the work others produce. I want your help to know how you’re able to prevent yourself from comparing yourself to others, and how you focus on your work and being inspired.

Thanks,

-C

Your concept of a good photo is incorrect, a good photo is the one you made and you have to make it in a way that there is no other one in the world to compare it with, you have to put in your photos your unique signature that will make it unique that way it can not be compared because it’s one of a kind.
