CHANGING YOUR EDITING STYLE THOUGHTS ILLUSTRATED IN GIFS

WHEN YOU HAVE A DEFINED STYLE THAT'S BEAUTIFUL BUT FEELING A LITTLE BORED WITH IT SO YOU DECIDE YOU DON'T LIKE IT ANYMORE
 
 
SO YOU TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT YOUR WORK AND START FEELING THAT IT'S JUST THE WORST BECAUSE IT'S MISSING SOMETHING
 
 
AND YOU COME UP WITH A MILLION REASONS TO CHANGE IT
 
 
AND YOU TALK TO YOUR CLOSE PHOTOGRAPHY FRIENDS AND EXPLAIN TO THEM THAT YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR STYLE, BUT THEY TELL YOU NOT TO 
 
 
AND ALTHOUGH YOU KNOW THEY ARE RIGHT, YOU WANT TO DO IT ANYWAYS
 
 
 YOU THINK ABOUT THE PROS AND CONS OF CHANGING YOUR STYLE FOR A LITTLE WHILE
 
 
AND THEN DECIDE JUST TO GO LOOK AT OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS WORK TO GET A LITTLE INSPIRATION
 
 
AND THEN JUST START PLAYING AROUND A LITTLE WITH A FEW ADJUSTMENTS TO SEE WHAT YOU CAN CREATE 
 
 
AND YOU KINDA START TO LOVE IT BECAUSE IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD! 
 
 
AND THE MORE YOU EDIT YOUR WORK, THE BETTER IT LOOKS. HELLO NEW STYLE!
 
 
AND SUDDENLY YOU FIND YOURSELF UP ALL NIGHT RE-EDITING ALL YOUR PHOTOS FROM THE LAST 3 YEARS
 
 
YOU KNOW THERE ARE A MILLION OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULD BE DOING, BUT CONTINUE EDITING ANYWAYS
 
THEN THE NEXT MORNING YOU WAKE UP AND TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR WORK ONLY TO REALIZE WHAT A MISTAKE IT WAS
 
 
AND YOU CAN'T HELP BUT LAUGH BECAUSE IT'S NOTHING LIKE YOUR REAL STYLE
 
 
AND THEN DOUBT WHO YOU ARE ARE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER BECAUSE YOU ALREADY HAD A GOOD STYLE TO BEGIN WITH AND NOW JUST FEEL LIKE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING
 
 
 BUT THEN YOU HAVE A LITTLE HEART TO HEART
 
 
QUIETLY PRETEND LIKE THIS NEEEEEVERRRR HAPPENED 
 
 
AND THEN YOU GO REVISIT YOUR ORIGINAL WORK ONLY TO SEE HOW BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT IT WAS
 
 
AND PROMISE YOURSELF THAT YOU'LL NEVER TRY AND CHANGE YOUR STYLE FROM WHAT COMES NATURAL, AND INSTEAD START SEEING THE BEAUTY IN YOUR OWN WORK
 
 
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY REALIZE THAT YOU CAN START APPRECIATING OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS STYLE, WITHOUT EVER NEEDING TO CHANGE YOUR OWN.
