Often, we can be a little harsh to beginners and their work, especially when we see their images online with no reference or context as to how long they’ve been shooting. But would we be as harsh if we looked back at our own work from when we were just starting out? After all, none of us were great from the first day.
That’s what photographer Michael Sasser puts to the test in this video where he looks back on his early images from when he started shooting boudoir over a decade ago. He’s certainly not holding back, but luckily, the only person he can offend is himself.
