Assignments are here for you to develop your skills. Do them all or pick and choose what resonates with you.
Get into the habit of printing your photographs for competitions. Even if you just print a first draft on the document printer and leave it hanging up somewhere, you will start to see things that you didn’t before. I often joke how this is like writing a first draft of a document. You will always see little things when you go back and read it that need correcting. Images are the same. Your first draft should be just that. If you’re a perfectionist there does come a time when you call the image done. You can’t keep making changes forever. There is new work to explore.
Create your process in dot point form and start to follow it. Be prepared to make improvements along the way.
You know what competitions you are going to enter now, so get a copy of the rules and read them. If you find things in there that are confusing, then ask for clarification from the competition’s organisers. Every year there will be changes to the rules so don’t think just because you read them this year that they will be the same next year. This is why you don’t leave it to the last minute.
