Less attachment leads to better images

Have you ever been disappointed by an image you have taken? Have you ever struggled to Photoshop an image to make it meet the first great expectations you had for it? Are you on the verge of giving-up on photography all together? I have done all this, but let’s stop for a moment and consider this advice from Mike Browne …

I’ve been working on (slightly tongue-in-cheek) posts on how to apply the Buddhist Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path to photography, so it came as a distinct pleasure to come across this video by Mike Browne (hat-tip to DIY Photography) who essentially says that to improve your photography skills, and to avoid constant disappointment, your must learn to be less attached to your images. I am not Buddhist, but I am willing to admit that many of the teachings for life have practical applications for growth, and non-attachment is one of them.

And after watching the above, you may want to subscribe to Mike Browne on YouTube. He has a wealth of helpful videos for amateur and advanced photographers alike.
