Lessons Learned – Take your time

1 Comment

After recently quitting my 9 to 5 job and immersing myself into pursuing a career in photography full time, as a beginner I know that carving my way on this journey is going to take some time. I guess to some it may be seen as being easy in becoming a photographer, but not so easy in becoming a great one.

This craft Is not one that should be rushed. A good friend once said to me: “do not count the hours but rather make the hours count.”  I intend to use this philosophy when taking pictures.  We should enjoy what we do wholeheartedly, be patient and open minded enough to discover different viewpoints that will help in our development – learn from our mistakes and enjoy the ride.

Being out and about taking photographs this week has taught me that nothing is to be rushed but to still capture that moment and make that second count.

Going out on your first shoot, for what ever style of photography you’re interested in can be slightly daunting at first I know, but the good thing is you can put it all down to learning experience…so relax and have bags of fun. If you’re lucky enough to have someone show you the ropes then that’s a bonus, but if you don’t not to worry…practice, practice, practice.

Much love guys,

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place….I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt

  1. “Being out and about taking photographs this week has taught me that nothing is to be rushed but to still capture that moment and make that second count.” This is a lovely quote! Thanks for the wisdom.
