I find this is the biggest barrier between photographers/ videographers and success in business.
There’s nothing wrong with perfection – we all strive for it – but the average customer doesn’t see most of this! I see photographers and videographers obsessing over minute, technical details of their work – when the only people who notice it are OTHER photographers! Time is money, and if you obsess over perfection, you will spend more time on a project which ends up pricing your project out of the realm of reality for most (hence, little business) or you will go out of business because you could be making more money flipping burgers.
You have to achieve a balance so you’re profitable and at the same time, producing a quality product that satisfies your client.
Creative people are always far more critical of their own work than their audience!
