3 Ways to Improve Your Images…that might annoy you

by Kelli France | Editor-in-Chief

Ever get frustrated with your photography? You're not alone. I think we all have days where we feel like our work is CLOSE but not quite there yet. So how do you get better? How do you improve your images to be to where you want them to be?

3 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR IMAGES:

1. Get Professional Feedback Improve your images by having a professional analyze & critique them. I'm currently taking a 4-Week Critique myself and loving it. Try a 4-Week Critique from one of our amazing Celebrities. You are never too advanced/good to learn from others.

2. Analyze & Act Study images of your own or other photographer's images that you love and see what common thread they have. Analyze what it is that you love about your favorite images. Do you love moody portraits? Do you swoon over styled sessions? Are you fanatic for film? Find common elements in your favorite photos and try to incorporate those elements in your own photography.

3. Practice..a Lot! I know that it might annoy you when someone tells you that "hard work" is the answer but that's really what it takes to get better at anything. Every time I get frustrated with my images, the words of Ira Glass echo in my ears: "The most important possible thing you can do, is do a lot of work." Watch his video below to get inspired to work hard.

P.S. I am at the Chic Retreat in Seattle right now! Follow the fun on Instagram @kellifrance & #chiccritiqueretreat xoxo, Kelli France
