These two activities – caring and sharing – are helping me to continue doing a lot of activities and keep myself motivated in doing so. For this post I really want to boil things down to two tips:

  • The more I cared about the pictures I took and how I edited them, the longer I am happy with them and with photography in general.
  • Investing the time and effort to achieve such a satisfactory level of carefulness is a lot easier, when I plan to share the photos. Being it private photos to give or show friends and family, or images for clients or specific purposes. Knowing that they will be seen and judged by others is a very motivating fact, and that does not necessarily include social networks.
