p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Are you still proud of your delivered images from 5 years ago?


Facebook and it's FB Memories got me thinking the other day. An image popped up that I shared 5 years ago and I thought to myself "I still like that and I'm happy my client has that image forever". I went back to some images from that wedding and was pretty content. I don't know that I've ever thought of that before.

So, after time has passed, are you happy with the images that you've delivered to your past clients?

Here's a few images from that wedding:

Sometimes I look at images I did 5-10 years ago I have forgotten about and am struck how good they look and how much I like them.

It seems to be a thing with me. Never that taken with images I just did but years later on I seem to appreciate them more.

Some of them. It's interesting to look back -- that was my second season shooting weddings so I wasn't really confident/comfortable with what I was doing. Ask me again in 5 years!

5 years ago? Probably somewhat. 4 years ago was where I really felt like I hit my stride, and I actually recently went through my old catalog. I was amazed at how many I still really loved. At first, that made me feel like I had become way too stagnant. But, when it comes down to it...good moments are just good moments whether you are creating Fearless Photos or not.

A reminder just now relevant to this thread.

Looking at the Exif on images and realising I did them 8-10 years ago when I feel like I shot them 2-3 years ago.

Scare myself so often with that.

Excellent topic which brings the idea of looking back to our previous work as an kind of "mandatory" exercise to keep on striving !.

I do not really like or understand my work from my very beginning 12/14 yeasr ago; I am starting to feel confortable when reviewing weddings from 4 years ago.

I am designing my first sample matted album (a crazy idea here in Spain at the moment) of a lovely wedding I shot back in 2014.

Great set of images Canerino !.

Absolutely. I would still proudly show and display weddings from 5-7 years ago.

Generally speaking when I look at my work 5-7 days ago I am sick to my stomach. 5-7 years I often feel I should send them a refund.

I was better 5 years ago. I had less stuff so I used my brain more.

Some of them. Some of my best work is in the past. If I'm super honest with myself. That said, nowadays my consistency has improved tremendously.

I was more inconsistent 5 years ago. Some real gems, but also a lot of bad posing and bad lighting choices.

Better gear has also helped, especially when you know an image will be sharp versus hoping

It is really interesting to think about. I certainly have older images that I'm happy with and proud of, but I also know that I have a higher keeper rate now as well. I also have cooler toys, though I'm not sure that there is any correlation to the images.

I'm getting ready to start my second season as a wedding shooter. I felt pretty good at the end of last year, but the beginning is a little tough to look at. I'm with Danny that I look at a couple of those and should start writing a check.

Proud as in I'm glad I delivered what I did given my old skill set and that I was pushing myself? Sure. Proud as in I think they're just as good now? Heck no. And I hope the latter answer never changes.

I did the best that I could with the skills and technology that I had at the time. So yes, I am. I hope to say the same thing in the next 5 years.

Definitely not. I did alot of things in the last 3 years such as implementing OCF, get better with editing to brand myself better. I remove alot of mediocre images and kept only one that appeal to my clients I'm seeking.

I still have some favorite images that was taken in good light, beautiful venue or bride that I go back to re-edit to my current standard.

I'm still proud of most of my old stuff. I'm a lot more consistent these days and can reliably produce great photos. I've lost some of the creativity though and freedom to push boundaries which allowed me to create some of my most unique photos.

I think the longer you've been in the game the more you've gone down a style route and it's quite hard to come up from there to push other boundaries.

For the most part... yes. The actual images... yes.

I really don't care for some of my processing several years ago.... that I would change.

I can see the refinement in images.... meaning a ratio of solid must have to creative...
There where more creatives.
Over time you learn and work on the must have solid shots.

Now I am looking to get back to creative but add the refinement of experience and knowledge.

and lets be real.... add in some lucky shots. Well... a mixture of the right timing with experience and creativity.
