Building a robust and strong photography portfolio is something that takes a lot of effort, persistence, and patience, and many of us spend years before we have a decent collection of images we are really proud of. So, how much persistence does it really take? This interesting video features a professional landscape photographer breaking down the numbers of how often he goes out and how many portfolio-worthy images he comes back with in a year.
Coming to you from Thomas Heaton, this insightful video examines just how persistent one has to be to get a good collection of portfolio-worthy images. If there is one thing I have learned in a variety of different areas of life, it is that persistence is often better than raw talent, and that applies just as much in photography. Consistently getting out with your camera is the best way to keep your skills sharp, expand your creative palette, and find those magical moments where everything comes together for the perfect shot. There are no shortcuts. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Heaton.
