Shoot and Look

I have a curious habit with the way I shoot. Most of the time I can finish a roll fairly quickly (except for the current 35mm now in one of the Holgas – the sucky part is that I’ve forgotten how many frames I’ve already shot on it… but that’s another issue for another day)

As I was saying, I have a curious habit. I tend to shoot off my rolls, get a little excited about how it’s going to turn out; finally get the film developed; get them back, study them and pick the ones I like; upload them and then… I kind of just never really go back to them again. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. I have some that are my favourites that I might pull out now and again to use here or there, but generally I don’t go back and critique the pictures that I’ve done. I know that through the rolls that I’ve been shooting, I do learn little tips and tricks. But by not going back and reviewing my pictures, am I perhaps missing out on more important lessons of photography?
