Today is Friday- And I have nothing planned photography wise for the weekend- I’ll be laying down some marble tile instead.
But I wanted to leave you with a thought for this weekend- Inspiration!
I believe I told everyone about the program “lenswork and Landscapes” I was doing this past Monday- Thanks to everyone who came BTW- and those who cameto “the show” made me realize something; there is a need to be inspired.
My program talked a lot about what to do when things aren’t going the best, how to find the shot that seems to be hiding…just out of sight; but still there waiting to be found. It resonated with the crowd!
Sometimes all it takes to see the vision that eludes us is a fresh approach, and this always means a different way of thinking.
But let’s forget about the photography for a moment ( did I REALLY just SAY that!?!) In life, we all feel that if we look just a little harder, work harder just a bit more, take more risks; we will come out on top with what we think will be success; and be dissappointed if we do not.
The truth of it is, we become so focused on what others are doing, we measure our successes by what we see others achieving- not what we ourselves have accomplished.
No one can be a better you- there are lessons we can learn from others of course, but gathering knowledge of how to do some thing, some technique is not the same as learning and interpreting it to make it our own!
To be inspired , to give us a fire to create or do something that has personal meaning , and see that thru is the true measure of success. For then you’ve not only become inspired; you’ve become inspiring.
Find your passion, look thru the looking glass; become amazing,
Think about it….. see you monday…….
