So I'm in a slump.
I've been really getting into the photography thing.... and LOVING IT! but ... I also started looking at other peoples work... not good!
I decided this week to go back to square one. Start over. Begin again. UGHHHhh
It's my only option.
I got so caught up in what I thought my photo's should look like, because of other peoples work, that I found myself losing my own self and who I am in my pictures. WHY I love taking photos, WHAT I got from it, and WHY I take photos. I've gotten so caught up in HOW other people take their photos, and how they edit, ect... I've lost my way.
I've been taking this photography class online. I find, that tho it's REALLY informative, it is more so, on the technical side. I kinda jumped ahead and started doing my own thing...because I got bored with the technical- and then got frustrated...I guess it doesn't pay to jump ahead! I do miss not having a hands on learning experience. I'm thinking of taking a free basics class, just to help me figure out some of the stuff I feel I've missed....in all the technical stuff.
Goin back to my photography basics... and gonna stay true to me...and NOT what others think I should do, or be...
