I can understand why someone is too embarrassed to show their work over something like that but personally I say show it anyways. I think some of my documentations are pretty bad too but I have decided to not let that stop me from showing them. I’d rather show bad images than no images because even if they’re bad then at least people will tell you why they are bad which will give you knowledge on how to make them better.
When we apply to shows we are required to take good quality photos of our work so photography is a skill that all creative professionals need to know. But if you don’t know how to take good photos the only way you will grow and learn is to take bad photos. Like I say, keep making mistakes until there are no more mistakes to make.
I felt the same why as I was starting this blog. I will admit I am a terrible speller. As I was getting started with this my brother in law told me that I saw some of my blogs and noticed tons of spelling and grammatical errors. Then I was stressing out on finding someone who was nice enough to proofread my blogs for just that, but the down part was that it was slowing me down everything in my daily schedule so I stopped. But I still knew I had a lot that I wanted to write about so eventually I said “Screw it, I’m writing my blogs and I don’t care if I suck at spelling. If my message is getting out there, then that’s good enough for me.” If my spelling and grammar problem becomes a big deal eventually then I will make a note to myself to fix that.
It’s just like getting your work critiqued, when people look at it and give you feedback the better they will come out in the future.
