So I'll probably go back and relearn the basic of developing and printing, but at the same time I can learn more about concepts such as tonality, edge detail, composition, etc. Even something as simple as dodging and burning - I have some grasp of how powerful of a tool it is, but we only gave it a passing glance at South High.
I think this is for the better though, because even as I was looking through my portfolio, I couldn't help but feel incredibly dissatisfied with my photography. My body of work was a terrible representation of the vision that I have inside my head, but fail to bring into fruition. Maybe one day I can be happier with more of my pictures, which feel more like snapshots when I place them next to the work of superior photographers.
So now I'm going to try to clean up my photographic knowledge. Throw away the crap, bring old film techniques out of the dusty recesses of my mind, and set up a clean slate. Time to start from square one. Again.
But was I ever at square two?
