How Do Live With Your Images?

How do you live with your images? You make a lot of them. 1% get finished. Some become used in projects – slideshows, exhibits, books, etc. But, day to day, how do you revisit our images?
Website (gallery or splashpage)?
Online social network (Flickr or other)?
Computer desktop?
Printed contact sheets?
Post up boards (refrigerator or bulletins)?
Single prints?
Print exhibits (in house/studio or offsite)?
Desktop calendar?
Greeting cards?
Books (published or self-published)?
Give yourself many ways to look at and interact with your work – frequently. You’ll come to understand it better. Ways to improve it will become clear. New ideas will come to light.
How many other ways can you think of? Comment here!

    wow…why is it that the obvious ideas like that never hit me until someone just says them outloud like that…
    I spend way too much time looking at other people’s work. Definitely need to look at my own more.
    thanks for the insight, I enjoy reading your blog each day.

    great idea John Paul. I can intuitively see the value in keeping those images “in front of me”. I have already started working on setting up area for my prints. Excellent idea, thanks for sharing.
