Since the fashion show I shot, I've received feedback from many people that my photos were the best of any of the photographers. I feel pretty good about that, but I still feel like it's a struggle to get people to not just recognize that, but put those thoughts into the public eye as testimonials to the quality of my work.
It's something I put a lot of focus on. I feel like I continuously improve the quality of what I do. Any slight slips, and I notice. For example, I photographed a performance art festival on Sunday. As I went through the pictures, I commented about how "off" I was. Trying to figure out why my quality slipped, why I didn't get the percentage of really good shots that I normally do.
I think I've figured out the factors that go into it. Now I have to recognize those factors the next time I'm in a similar situation.
This summer has been so busy. I've been forced to find new paths, and I've been working double-time at doing so.
Got a writing gig blossoming. A photography gig blossoming. My freelance work is increasing, and I'm about to become a job counselor for the disabled, putting my years of business experience, and acumen to work helping improve the lives of others.
I haven't had a lot of time to explore myself, inward or outward. Self-reflection, and self-direction is important. Creating for the love of creating. Feeling for the love of feeling. Connecting for the love of making the world a better place, and myself a better person.
I'm setting aside an hour today to do just that...
Well after your time, PLEASE teach me how I can self reflect/self direct, create, love and becoming a better person in 1 hour.
Just keep doing you...you've always been a kind, passionate and devoted person....who gave much more of themselves to everyone, leaving nothing for yourself.
I hope you're well, i miss our conversations. Must play catch up.
It doesn't happen in an hour... but it's time set aside each day, or a few times a week to consider things.
I'm in a better place now, in some ways, and a bit unstable in others. But the unstable is somewhat in my control and I'm excited about it!
You know where I am. Getting in touch with me hasn't changed in the decade that we've known each other. :)
