There is a lot of noise in photography, and I am not talking about the sort that appears in your images at higher ISOs. Rather, there are a lot of things in the industry that simply do not matter when it comes to making images, running a business, or simply enjoying the experience and thrill of taking a photograph and seeing it come to life before your eyes. This great video discusses some of the things we should worry about a bit less in photography and reminds us of what really matters.
Coming to you from First Man Photography, this fantastic video discusses some of the things we focus on too much and what we should be thinking about more as photographers. Personally, the thing that bothers me the most is the rampant toxicity that pervades the industry. It genuinely hurts my heart to see how unkind we can be to each other, often without any reason for it. Any creative pursuit is inevitably going to bring about clashes of egos, but we can also learn so much from each other and be way more supportive, something that is all the more important in a time like this, when almost all of us are struggling at least a bit. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
