WHO AM I ?
We often ask a lot of questions to other people: Who are you ? What is your name? Where are you from ? What do you do? What are you doing here? but Have you ever asked a question to yourself ?
I don't remember his name, I don't even remember what we were talking about when we met. All I know is, I had a very big smile when I was talking to him. I was happy.
I want to be that person in my life. I want to spread happiness. I want to answer that I am the guy who make people smile, when you ask me Who am I ?
Things can be really empty in this world. It can become a very meaningless place if you don't really understand: Who am I? Why am I here? What am I doing?
To feel fulfilment and have a deeper level of understanding, personally, that is the most important thing.
Dont say you have nothing to shoot or nothing to post instead change that and go out and shoot, go practice whenever you can. The more you practice the better you become and if you put in the effort and work you’ll be getting Bangers in no time. It took me 3 years to take the photos I do today. 3 years of hard hard work. Didn’t go to any photography school just learnt it all through articles and @youtube. Same goes for editing. Practice by editing old images or new ones and edit 10-20 a day practicing different styles. Im still learning too. Keep up that hard work and it’ll pay off. Also don’t manipulate your photos on photoshop that just defeats the beauty of storytelling through a still moment in life. Its also defeats the purpose of photography and becomes visual art 🤙🏻
Going through roadblocks, restrictions, and challenges are a must in anything you do and there are a lot when building yourself as a photographer.
You can plan out the perfect shoot but when you have to rely on lighting and weather conditions, you cannot control that.
Being able to think creatively and not the normal poses or set up for a Photoshoot is my bread and butter.
I say to everyone if I don’t get on the floor, it’s not a good shoot😂
I love this shot. In a group of photographers it’s hard to get the shot that you planned for.
In a group setting I usually sit back and analyze the other angles they’re getting and wait for my opportunity to jump in. I saw someone shooting behind this huge door of the @501union Building and I was just able to prop my camera right over the head of the other shooter, called the model to look behind me and I just held my finger on the shutter.
