Like I said on Tuesday, this month is very important to me. The first two months was in preparation for this time. I didn’t realize it at the time how much pressure I have and will be putting on myself. But it is okay, if I can’t put the pressure on myself and see what is out there for me then who is? By tomorrow sometime I will be finish with my website. It was actually done last week, but had a critique that threw me off. In a good way, but in a way that would have me to alter the look and feel of the website.
So What the Hell Am I Talking About?
The first thing is to learn. From time to time I like to get information from professionals that have plenty of years on the industry. I learn so much from people and then in turn put my own spin on the craft. This type of learning will only help out the people I charge for my services because I will have develop more skills that will better tell their story and what they are looking for. This will happen throughout the month and on an intense level, which is the only way I know how to do anything.
The past couple of months have been all about business and how I’m going about this adventure. But now I’m going to be putting all of it to test this month and also for the rest of the year. After writing my business plan I have realized that I have so many different types of photography that I like. Some are more rewarding than others and some are more easy for me to do and to sell. But now I’m sticking my whole self into all of these avenues. I just have to because I don’t know which ones that will be generating sufficient income or a field that I’m more willing to go into because I like the type of work or it will allow me to have a better understanding of what it is that I would like to keep more as a hobby versus a part of my business. So, I will call this month’s exploration a case study. Case study #1 is going to be called, “Throw it on the wall and see what sticks”.
About The Post a Couple of Days Ago.
Just yesterday I went to see my brother to catch up and to drop off his photograph that he ordered from me. We discussed life, how his trip was and about the post from last week. He said that I came off depressed and mad at my current state. We went back and forth of what it meant to me and what he thought I was saying and how I could perhaps better address the situation. I will later read the post again, but the things that he said made sense. He always has a way of making things make sense to me.
I’m going to be more about just living and letting photography just happen for me. That is a simple way of putting it and feel that life is all about taking it easy, but doing something that drives you. This photography stuff drives me to do things that I have never thought that was possible. I’m going to see how I evolve with everything as time goes by. I’ll keep everyone informed.
However, I think it is worth me pointing out what I was saying in that post. Being lost in passion is new to me. I know what my life is and how I see it shaping because of the things that I do daily to improve and explore my own mystery of life. I don’t know too many people who have experienced being lost in passion as I have these past couple of months. It could be that I’m using my passion as a way to make income now. The income and passion go to war with each other constantly, but don’t feel stress right now because I have a job that is suppling me with my main income. However, what will happen once I’m devoting the time mainly to making a life with this? I don’t know. It is something that I shouldn’t even think about right now. I just have to watch the way I’ll be changing.
