Nothing in this world ever makes sense without a context, it is easy to take the qualities of your work for granted, before having witnessed someone else’s approach. I strongly encourage you to participate in something where you can see your work alongside other people’s.

I don’t have my work exposed in an exhibition or featured in a book, however there are other ways to compare it with other people’s and you all know how: social networks! Of course, take a tour around Flickr, 500px, Facebook, Instagram, WordPress photography page, or other sites you know… I like this one and that one for example.
Sometimes when I see a photograph that I really like I keep it in my computer, I have this folder with images taken by other people and from time to time I go thought them trying to find what they have in common and why I like them so much. In a way it helps to define my own style.
Do you also do this or something similar? Share your thoughts. 😉
