Without our critiques we wouldn't be able to figure out for ourselves which piece is stronger. Now I can stand back and see automatically which is the weaker photo and what I need to work on. Surrounding yourself with people who had just as much passion gives you the push to do better. The connections and opportunities that were given have certainly proven to be most useful. I keep in touch with most and reach out with photo projects which keeps myself active in my own personal work.
