I picked up a couple of rolls of film the other day to scan and found myself frustrated at the results. I started to get really down on myself that I had wasted all this film and money to only come back with a handful of mediocre photos a moreover, photos that could have been good if I had put into practice what I knew needed to be done to get the results I wanted.
Rather than beat up on myself I decided to take my own advice and not be discouraged when you are disappointed in your own shots but rather have a look and see and learn what you can do better next time. And they are all simple things.
1. Take a tripod with me when I shoot
2. Shoot with a smaller aperture to get everything in focus
3. Start using higher ISO film
4. Take more time to get it right
