“Steve” and I are part of a large photography exhibit that opened this weekend at the Allentown Art Museum. I had photographed Steve as part of a project on artists and am always eager to show him off.
The exhibition hall was packed with photographers who are all displaying great images. It is a little daunting to see how good they all are and also encouraging to see the bar for photography rising higher and higher. Mediocre images just don’t cut it.
When high quality becomes the norm, the only place to go is up.
It would be easy to be jealous other other people’s talent but that’s pretty much a waste of attention. It is much more fun to study what they do and how they do. Not to imitate or compare but to understand.
Business (i.e., life) is always a learning process. Gotta love it.
