When you make photographs, forget about who else might see them.
Forget about trying to produce images you think your parents or friends might approve of.
Forget about trying to capture shots that look just like those you’ve seen online with the most “likes” and “favourites”.
Forget about creating compositions to gain recognition from people on social media you don’t know, will never meet and whose opinions and approval in fact have no significance to you whatsoever.
Instead, make photographs for no-one. No-one, that is, but yourself.
Only when you seek out and make the images you want to make can you find a true sense of freedom and enjoyment, one that is immediately diluted any time you compromise.
