I wish I had more time to take photos and upload, but ultimately I think it's better to focus on quality rather than quantity. Well, some people seem to achieve both quantity and quality but I don't so I try to keep a critical eye on my photos and only submit the best ones, even if it hurts sometimes not to be able to (self) select one enough shot out of a whole series...
My approval rate is quite regular, 64% overall and around 75% most months these days. If I stick to my favourite subjects, I can even reach 85 or 90% approval ratio, but I like to take a bit of risk in order to learn.
I've learnt a lot in the last couple of years, and I've also gained confidence. This has allowed me this year to do my daughter's school calendar. A voluntary activity that I can be proud of and that looks professional enough! I obviously can't publish the photos on DT, but that's fine as some of them might not be quite sharp enough at 100% but work really well on a smaller resolution. That has certainly been a lot of fun as it's been a proper assignment, with a brief to follow whilst allowing creativity.
