I regularly review my past work to check my photographic progress and also to simply clean my photo archives but I seldom look back to my very beginnings.

While many of the photos I took back then aren’t very good, because I made a lot of mistakes, I also got a few keepers, which are still part of my portfolio. As I was going through the photos I asked myself, what I should have done differently and what I already did right?

The result is a set of eight lessons, which I share with you in the video below:
