Finding worthy photographs in old collections
More often then not, the photographs are usually edited right after photo shoot, holiday or photo walk. I am referring here mainly to the selection process. After deleting the obvious rejects like blurry or out of focus shots, the selection becomes much harder. At this point most of us still feel the excitement and emotional connection to the photographs as we clearly remember the situation, circumstances and place the photograph was taken at. That makes it very hard to select one over the other. Also over the time our taste and "style" changes and what we didn't consider as obvious pick before can jump at us straight away few months or years later. I don't say all these new picks will make it into portfolio but they may be photographs very well worth of showing.
Photographers are the worst editors of their own images. I can certainly relate to that. I am so attached to some images that I simply refuse to take them of the site even though I already might have a similar image in portfolio. Selecting is a though. Sometimes there are only subtle nuances that put one photo ahead of other. Some images though get overlooked altogether. And sometimes there are some fine photographs in that bunch.
Recently I went through my all photographs and I also found some that I didn't really look at for one reason or another. I would like to share few of those with you. As I said before, they won't most likely make it to portfolio but I think you might like at least some.
