What a subjective question right? I've had people tell me my photos are great, professional. I've also had people tell me to never pick up a camera again.
I've read hours upon hours about exposure and composition, and went out to practice whenever I can... it seems my creativity in photos have plateaued and I don't know what to do. Buy a new lens, editing software? That seems hardly practical.
What does POTN think? I want to become a photojournalist, but how do I separate myself from the competition?
