It can be hard to measure long-term progress in photography, as we grow in slow, small steps. But it's important to know how far you've come and where you still need work, and this helpful video will give you five ways to check just how much progress you've made.
Coming to you from Mark Denney, this great video will give you some ways to evaluate how far your photography skills have progressed. Personally, I've found one thing that's a reliable indicator is the amount of intentionality I have in the various steps of the process. When I was first starting out, I spent a lot of time pushing sliders around until I happened upon a good result or shooting hundreds of photos and relying on the statistical likelihood of something good being in the set, but as I progressed, it became less a matter of trying to happen upon a good result and more knowing what the result I wanted was and taking control of the process to get there. That's of course not to say that there's no longer room for experimentation, but I've found it to be a good measure of where I feel secure and where I could use some improvement. Check out the video above for more ways to evaluate yourself.
