False Evidence Appearing Real

Black Tree Branch BW_

At times we are set back from greatness because of fear, we allow this four letter word to control or stop us from success. You beat yourself up when you live your life full of fear, you miss out on many great open opportunities. If you allow fear to dominate your mind you might never be at peace with yourself. Growing up there was always something stopping me from sharing my ideas, opinions, or bold actions. I call it FEAR, fear of rejection, fear of a bad idea, fear of failure, or fear of being laughed at.

One of my many experiences with fear comes from the lack of knowing. It all has a beginning and it must be tracked in order to break from it.  Growing up with a single mother the majority of my life was very challenging. It was difficult for her to build me up as man if she was always working hard to provide for a family of five children. For years I would blame myself for the absence of my father. It was later in life when I realize that his decision for leaving was because of fear, fear of commitment, fear of discipline, fear of raising a family.

So I learned that you are always capable of doing what you believe in or sharing what matters most to you. Don’t let this word, FEAR, overpower your decision for your future, take some time to meditate and think back to moments that have stop you from pushing yourself forward.

Chronicles of a Photographer: Words from an Expert

Kenneth

Well, I believe that as you continue to grow and sharpen your skills in photography, you may dislike some of your photos and may even tell yourself that you could have done a better job. But, don’t let yourself discourage you! This is what I like to call your biggest competitor – yourself. The truth is that blasting your previous work and/or comparing your work, that is already magnificent, with other professionals or amateur artists could be quite saddening and heartbreaking. So, learn to recognize the work of others and possibly be inspired by it, and use it in a healthy manner, try not to compare your work to others in a way that diminishes what you do. It is always great practice to be open to learn from others while understanding that you are not the other person and our personalities, though processes, and ways of shooting are different. You were given a gift, a gift to enjoy, to capture art, people, music, action, nature, and anything that crosses your path.  Don’t fall into drowning yourself with discouragement and some type of jealousy towards others and their work, instead take time to recognize your work as unique, special, and different. Photography has no right or wrong if it’s done purposely, so enjoy what you do and be happy with your work and remember that if you want to grow in this trade, you do it for yourself and to enjoy it, do it purposely and passionately, do it for love and not for money!

Chronicles of a Photographer: Amateur vs. Expert

DSC_3877 Personally, I find it quite thrilling to be able to capture a spectacular shot when there are challenges around. We all know that taking pictures could be done by simply anyone. Our thought about this is usually: just pick up a camera, aim it at something, and click the ‘capture’ button , right? While this is in part true, there is a lot of practice and learning in film and photography that one must dedicate time to in order to obtain high quality results. You’d need to learn when to shoot, how to shoot, and why you are shooting to add meaning to the photo. Experts could spend a lot of their time waiting for the right moment to snap a picture, but just like new beginners, amateur artists tend to wait less and shoot more.  Usually, as an amateur I would snap tenths of pictures hoping one would come out perfect, but now, I have learned my lesson. I am an expert that understands that waiting for the right moment results in a higher quality and more significant photo than just shooting uncontrollably in hope of a great shot. An amateur photographer could feel like every shot taken is a perfect shot and may not want to delete it, but as time goes by and you gain experience, your skills enhance and your knowledge enriches, and you learn that expertise can only be achieved through practice and that every expert was once an amateur.
