Who are you taking Photographs for?

When taking shots for others, the photographers mind is filled with what the audience is expecting to see, with this is mind, it can affect what images the camera takes as the photographers mind isn't relaxed completely in the present moment.

How can this affect what image is captured?

The mind becomes clouded with the concerns of others and what they will think of the image, then thoughts become judgemental, which in turn creates barriers.

Doubt can then creep in, but we may not recognise it, not feeling a connection with the landscape images as we edit them.

Maybe then a judgement against ourselves, feeling stupid, inadequate, not as good as another photographers images.

Then the question should be, who are you taking photographs for?
