I did not take photos of myself, was not filtered, and had no idea what I looked like as a bunny rabbit, puppy, or unicorn. I had to buy film, load it in a camera, carry it around, find something worth shooting, get the film developed, and then pick up the prints. I only had 36 shots so each one mattered; I was constantly forced to ask myself, “Do I actually want a photo of this?”

Stepping back to understand deeper context and underlying motivation is important because people are notoriously bad at predicting what they want.
