The challenge with post work is knowing what to do! My sessions are highly improvisatory. Though I do try to take the time to do some planning by paying careful attention to light and focus, I lack the skill/experience to visualize the end result with any real accuracy.

So I nudge and fudge and judge - until I either arrive at something I like or I don't.

I take very few breaks when working on an individual piece, despite knowing the value of rested eyes. Sometimes, I look again later, and I like the work better and sometimes it's the other way around. I do sense a gradual arc of forward movement, but patience with my own progress is always needed.
