I have been thinking a lot about editing, how I am ever going to do it with my own work, and coming to no particular conclusion.
Dan Milnor was right when he said here: “Typically we get too attached to our imagery and have difficulty making good decisions.”
Let’s use the image above as an example. All i can analytically get from it is still “YUCK!” even though the car is clean and mud long gone. I was there, wading around in the stuff, smelling it, coming close to tasting it even. Whatever merits or downfalls the image might have, is completely obscured for me, by disgust. Trying to get past the memory of the experience is a tough one. I start with best intentions and end up nowhere.
Here is where I am with trying to create a cohesive body out of my own work.
Like a three ton vehicle in thick sucking mud with no traction, I am stuck fast in my rut.
