I have been wondering recently about how differently people approach photography and how they see themselves as photographers.
If you had to describe your "photographic self" in 3 words, what would they be?

Me, I am OPPORTUNISTIC, INTUITIV and EMOTIONAL Smile

How about you?

I am reminded of an old saying that there are three ways of being: the way you see yourself, the way others see you, and the way you actually are.

I see my own photography as: creative, experimental, and interesting

Now whether others would agree is something quite different…

Note: isn't it curious that the first 3 responses are all negative about their self perception as photographers. We really are a culture of 'own worst critics'

now come on Ade. You've got a huge following on here because your images are exceptional. Think of something else. How about 'accomplished'.

Only if I'm in my comfort zone of macro/micro imagery, trust me outside of this I'm fairly useless Wink
