What goes through your head before you release your camera’s shutter? Or before you post one of your photos online? Are you convinced your images is worthy of an award? Or are you nervous that no one will like it?
These folks have summed up your anxiety and overconfidence–as well as their own pet peeves–in this tongue-in-cheek photography flowchart:
The CLICKittyCAT chart, though humorous, is perhaps a bit harsh. Photography should be fun, after all. However, it does have some merit.
