Not sure if you would have seen this already but earlier this week, Joel Grimes posted the first episode of his new weekly YouTube video blog called Behind the Lens.
In this opening episode Joel touches on how he regularly will spend time looking through the work of other photographers and make a note of what he likes; a process he does on a regular basis to help inspire and give a focus for the direction he wants to head in with his own work.
Joel talks about the importance of getting out and shooting again and again to create a body of work and how doing so will help to develop your own unique style.
One of the most important points Joel makes, and this is something every single one of us at some point need to get to grips with, is that not everyone will like what you do…but that’s ok. There’s certain things you’re drawn to and certain things that other folks are drawn to and sure enough…sometimes they just don’t match up.
